Live By Night is a big screen adaptation of the novel by Dennis Lehane and will see Affleck return to the director's chair for the first time since the huge success of Argo.

As well as being in the director's chair Affleck has also penned the screenplay and will take on the role of Joe Coughlin in the Prohibition Era set drama.

Live By Night is the second of Lehane's novels that Affleck has brought to the big screen; adapting Gone Baby Gone for his feature film directorial debut back in 2007.

Affleck has brought together a terrific cast for the film as he stars alongside Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana, Elle Fanning, Chris Messina, Chris Cooper. and Benny Ciaramello.

Live By Night will be the fourth feature film of Affleck's directing career and I am looking forward to his return as I have been a huge fan of his work so far.

2015 has already been a busy year for the actor as he has completed work on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - released next year - and the The Accountant, which sees him team up with director Gavin O'Connor.

Dawn of Justice will see Affleck take over the role of Batman for the first time ahead of a solo film. We are also going to see him make an appearance in Suicide Squad next summer.

Live By Night is set for s 2017 release.
