Ben Affleck To Direct TV Pilot For FOX

4 Mar

Ben Affleck is stepping behind the camera again.

The man who will play Batman will direct a pilot for FOX, as well as serve one of the executive producers, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The Middle Man, set to begin production in 2014, is a crime drama set in – you guessed it – Affleck’s beloved Boston.

The 1960s series will follow an FBI agent and his relationship with an Irish-American gangster.

“The duo’s actions inadvertently give rise to the Irish-American mob in this timeless Boston crime saga,” according to the show’s press release. [via EW].

In other Affleck news, there is a tiny chance the Oscar winner will have a co-star in Justin Bieber in Batman Vs. Superman. Over the weekend, the Canadian pop star teased fans with a “script” on Instagram. The crowd media sort of went wild.
