Hollywoodland is a murder-mystery that recounts the tragic life and career of actor George Reeves (portrayed by Ben Affleck), who gained fame as the title character in the 1950s TV classic The Adventures of Superman. Whether Reeves killed himself or was murdered is the central question of 'Hollywoodland'. We love this movie as it clearly succeeds at making people remember George Reeves and to see him as something more than an actor and a cape. I am a huge fan of L.A. and of its mystery and allure in the '50s and '60s. Movies, actors, studio heads, death and secret alliances are some of the elements that make 'Hollywoodland' one of the most thrilling movie to reach the screen recently. Ben Affleck gives a stunning performance as a melancholic George Reeves and Bob Hoskins as MGM boss, Eddie Mannix is nothing short of superb, as usual.

Ben Affleck will rewrite, direct and star in “The Town,” a Warner Bros. adaptation of the Chuck Hogan novel “The Prince of Thieves.” Graham King is producing through his GK Films banner. Affleck would play a career thief who becomes smitten by the manager of a bank. The project - which most recently had director Adrian Lyne attached - would be based in Charlestown, Mass., a gritty blue-collar Boston suburb similar to the one that Affleck captured in his directorial debut, “Gone Baby Gone.” Affleck is doing a rewrite on the most recent draft by Peter Craig and Hogan.
