Adam Driver in Talks to Star Opposite Matt Damon in 'The Last Duel' as Ben Affleck Takes Supporting Role

Adam Driver is in early talks to star opposite Matt Damon in The Last Duel.

Sources have shared with Variety that the 35-year-old actor might be replacing Ben Affleck in the leading role in the upcoming Ridley Scott directed movie. Ben is now taking a supporting role in the movie.

Back in July, it was announced that Matt and Ben were teaming up again to co-write the script for The Last Duel with Can You Ever Forgive Me? screenwriter Nicole Holofcener.

Here’s the synopsis: “Set in 14th century France, the movie is an epic tale of betrayal and justice, told from three distinct points of view: two knights (Matt and Adam) whose bond is tested by treachery and a young woman (Jodie Comer) forced to navigate the brutal and oppressive culture of the era in order to survive.”

Disney and Fox have not yet greenlit the film and are still deciding how to proceed. If it does get the go-ahead, The Last Duel should begin production in early 2020.
