Ben Affleck to star in Mudbound director’s next

Seems there is more on the table for Ben than Batman.

Ben Affleck seems to have survived the disaster that was “Justice League”.

The versatile thesp, who may or may not be fronting a new ‘Batman’ solo movie for director Matt Reeves, has joined the cast of “Mudbound” director Dee Rees’ next film.

Affleck, Toby Jones, Rosie Perez, Edi Gathegi, and Mel Rodriguez have joined the previously announced Anne Hathaway and Willem Dafoe in “The Last Thing He Wanted”, which Netflix will release next year.

Co-scripted by the “Mudbound” helmer and Marco Villalobos, the film is an adaptation of the 1996 novel of the same name by Joan Didion and tells of a journalist Elena McMahon (Hathaway) who finds herself on dangerous ground as the Iran Contra Affair’s arms for drugs plot reaches its tipping point.
