Ben Affleck plans African Political Thriller

Deadline are reporting that Ben Affleck is taking the helm for an upcoming Geopolitical Thriller set in Africa. The movie is being brought to us by Warner Bros Pictures and Pearl Street Films and is being written by Will Staples. Affleck is said to be directing and starring in the upcoming film.

"The film is set in Africa, where a bunch of mercenaries are hired to kill a warlord who has been victimizing his own people. The film is both an action movie and an examination of the moral ambiguities of how philanthropy and foreign assistance veers into modern day neocolonialism. It also tracks how involvement in the affairs of foreign countries is always a good deal more complicated than anticipated in the planning stages."
