With the compliments Ben Affleck received directing Gone Baby Gone I had begun to wonder when we'd see the actor behind the camera again. It looks like Miramax has just the ticket, as the studio has picked up Affleck for the fact-based drama Arizona in hopes he'll direct.
Ben Affleck to (Possibly) Direct Arizona
With a script from scribe Sheldon Turner, Arizona is based on a true story that began with the death of Don Bolles, an investigative reporter for the Arizona Republic. In 1976, Bolles was killed in a car bomb explosion as he was investigating the infiltration of organized crime into state government.
Bolles was a co-founder of a group called the Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE). The group's members rallied after Bolles death to complete the work that he had begun.
