Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck is reportedly in talks to direct a remake of the Clint Eastwood film 'Play Misty For Me'. The 'Hollywoodland' actor, who recently made his directing debut taking the helm on 'Gone, Baby, Gone', has been approached by bosses about making the movie. Hollywood legend Eastwood directed and starred in the original 1971 film about a DJ who is stalked by a deranged listener obsessed with the song 'Misty', by Johnny Mathis. Eastwood is rumored to be producing the remake, while 'Lucky Number Slevin' writer Jason Smilovic is said to be writing the screenplay. However, Affleck is yet to commit to the project. Meanwhile, the 'Good Will Hunting' star has admitted he is glad he didn't marry ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez. The 34-year-old actor - who is now married to actress Jennifer Garner, with whom he has a baby daughter, Violet - is relieved his relationship with J.Lo fell apart because his life was becoming "miserable". Affleck recently said: "I should never have got engaged and never gone down that route. I thought I wanted certain things, but I didn't. I got lost and felt suffocated, miserable and gross. I had to stop and think, 'What am I doing with my life?'
