Affleck’s Baby scores Freeman

A “Sum Of All Fears” reunion


Ben Affleck will re-team with his “Sum of All Fears” co-star Morgan Freeman, for “Gone Baby Gone”, the Southie’s directorial debut.

The film, which will also star Casey Affleck, Michelle Monaghan and Ed Harris, is based on the novel by Dennis Lehane about two detectives that are investigating the disappearance of a missing child.

According to The Boston Herald, the film started shooting on Boston’s waterfront on Monday.

By the way, had a chat to someone at Paramount about the Jack Ryan series, recently, of which Affleck is contracted to return for at least one more stint as the young C.I.A Analyst. It’s a no go. They were originally going to do “Red Rabbit” – heck, it was essentially written with a movie in mind! – but for undisclosed reasons, assumingly financial, they’ve put a pin in that balloon. They’re doing a series of John Clark movies instead.
