Casey Affleck is attached to star in period noir drama The Kind One, based on the just-published novel by Tom Epperson, reports Variety.

The film will reunite Affleck with Gone Baby Gone producer Sean Bailey, who is producing through his new Disney-based Idealogy.

The story, set in the 1930s Los Angeles, centers on an amnesiac (Affleck) who finds himself working for a mobster -- a sadistic killer given the nickname "the Kind One" -- and falling in love with the thug's girlfriend.

Epperson will adapt his novel when the WGA strike is over.

Given Casey's 2 star turns last year i am looking forward to this.
 
Thanks for this HR, Casey is becoming one of my favorite actors.
 
Casey in a period piece crime/neo noir piece in the 1930s? I'm freaking there.
 
Gone Baby Gone and Assassination of Jesse James really highlight what a phenomenal talent Casey Affleck is. He has a very bright future.
 
Sounds like this could be pretty cool.
 
Definately sounds interesting...now word on a director?

Casey Affleck has just signed on to star as "Two Gun Danny" in the newly released novel turned movie "The Kind One." The Gangster-Noir film follows Affleck's character, a amnesiac enforcer who has a difficult time believing his own homicidal reputation. The Kind One is set 1930's Las Angeles.

Scott and Jules Daly are producing for Scott Free; Ideaology's Sean Bailey (Gone Baby Gone) is also producing.
 
This guy is so much better than his brother in the acting department... this is the perfect role for him.
 
Awesome that Ridley Scott has signed on, wonder when this will get started?
 
I was watching Black Hawk Down last night, and now I understand why he's wanted so much. That film is amazing.

I just wish we knew what was filming when.

While that is true, he's not ***** Jimmy Kimmel like his brother is.
 
I love film noir. Affleck should be good in this one. I think Ben is a better director than actor and Casey is the better actor (though he hasn't directed anything yet).
 
wow ridley scott and casey afflect in a mob movie. Hell yes
 
Awesome that Ridley Scott has signed on, wonder when this will get started?

I am very very happy that Ridley is directing this, Now that he's on board my anticipation has shot up on a project i was already very interested in.

I wonder if he'll cast Crowe as the mob boss. :D

Jeus, Scott is more busy than Scorsese right now. :p

Their custody battle for Leo is gonna be brutal. :csad: :oldrazz:
