The studio picked up the script last year, written by Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love) with Tom Cruise attached. Cruise has since left the project, which prompted Warners to pursue Affleck. The studio is also looking to hire a director for the movie.

The story revolves around a politician who gets caught in an affair and returns to his hometown to confront his past.

Affleck has recently starred in 2010's The Town and is currently in post-production on the thriller Argo.
