    Gone Baby Gone and Assassination of Jesse James really highlight what a phenomenal talent Casey Affleck is. He has a very bright future.

    Ridley Scott to Helm The Kind One

    Source: Variety
    April 17, 2008


    Ridley Scott will direct and produce period noir drama The Kind One for Warner Bros. Pictures, reports Variety.

    Casey Affleck is attached to star in the film, which is based on a novel by Tom Epperson, who will write the screenplay.

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

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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

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