Damon and Affleck reunite for mobster movie

It’s easy to forget Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are Oscar winning screenwriters. Their Good Will Hunting collaboration seems so long ago; since then, there have been Bournes and Giglis, not to mention the whole I’m ******* Matt Damon and I’m ******* Ben Affleck song war.

The duo is set to collaborate once more on a film based on the life of former Irish mob godfather Whitey Bulger.

Damon revealed the news to GQ.

“There are a couple of competing movies and I don’t think it’s been announced yet that we’re doing it … But the sooner it’s announced the better, just because everyone else will back off, hopefully. I’m really excited about it.”

Damon is set to star as Bulger, with Affleck directing. Boardwalk Empire and The SopranosTerence Winter will write the screenplay. Warner Bros will produce.

It is unknown if Affleck will work on this before he embarks on the epic Stephen King adaptation The Stand.

Discuss: Glad to see these boys back together?
