Ben Affleck is working on a new Chinatown movie
Ben Affleck has found his next directorial project. After winning the Oscar for Best Film for Argo in 2013, he then made, in 2016, The Law of the Night, set during the years of prohibition. According to the latest rumors, Affleck appears to have been assigned to direct the film The Big Goodbye for Paramount Pictures.

The film is based on Sam Wasson's essay on the making of Roman Polanski's 1974 film Chinatown with Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway. According to the Deadline newspaper (you can read the original article at this link) it is not known whether Affleck, in addition to directing the film, will also appear in it as an actor. Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels said the rights to the book were acquired by Paramount and he will appear, along with Affleck, as the film's producer.

Chinatown is a milestone in film and real holy grail of seventies movies. The ending of this film and its dialogues are among the most famous ever and making a film about the making of this masterpiece could be very interesting to understand, moreover, the dynamics within the production.

We do not know, however , if the actors who played the characters in the film will return in this special Affleck film. We'll see if Polanski, Nicholson and Dunaway take part in the film along with Robert Towne (who won the Academy Award for that film) and Anjelica Huston who, during the filming of Chinatown, had a very close relationship with Jack Nicholson. We recall that Ben Affleck will appear in the films Deep Water (which should be released at the end of the year) and The Last Duel which he also wrote, although we do not know the exact release date of the films.

If you want to recover some of the film that see director Ben Affleck, we can only recommend the purchase of the Oscar winning film Argo which you can purchase at this link .
