Ben Affleck to Reteam with Gone Girl's David Fincher & Gillian Flynn for 'Strangers On A Train'

Ben Affleck will reportedly be reteaming with his Gone Girl crew, director David Fincher and writer Gillian Flynn, for a remake of the Alfred Hitchcock movie Strangers On A Train.

The 42-year-old actor will play a version of the original movie’s Farley Granger, a man bored with his marriage who wants a divorce and ends up in a deal with a crazy socialite to exchange murders of their loved ones. With a twist in the script, Ben will be playing a movie star in the middle of an Oscar big who’s plane breaks down and is given a ride by a different wealthy plane owner, Deadline reports.

The film will reportedly be fast-tracked despite Ben‘s busy schedule.

    Ben is looking so good lately I´m so horny about him he is very sexy and all that but, he needs to develop his acting skill

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO! One does not remake a Hitchcock movie!

  • rocknmovie

    NO! I love Ben but I also love Hitchcock’s movies. And you don’t remake a movie made by the master, and Strangers on a Train is one of his best… Please, NO!

  • rocknmovie

    Have you seen any of his movies. He can act or he wouldn’t be around today.

  • Myskina

    I did, and He can’t act sorry

  • Guest

    A bigger problem: Gillian Flynn can’t write. Messy, messy production coming up to follow up the huge mess that was Gone Girl. Expect huge plot holes and 2D, plain annoying characters.

  • Mariana Mari

    Ben is a great actor.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    Ben has talent. And he is certainly beautiful. Great shot above.

    Fincher has talent too. He’s making some strange choices lately though. 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea? Now remake Hitchcock? Bound to have many unhappy viewers.

    You guys can work well together. Please think more carefully though.

    This might actually work.
