Ben Affleck’s Live by Night gets a trailer



Live by Night is an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s sprawling crime novel. Ben Affleck wrote the screenplay. He is also directing and starring in the film. He will be sharing the screen with Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana, Anthony Michael Hall, Brendan Gleeson, Titus Welliver, Chris Cooper, Scott Eastwood and Elle Fanning.

“Live by Night” is set in the roaring `20s when Prohibition hasn’t stopped the flow of booze in an underground network of gangster-run speakeasies. The opportunity to gain power and money is there for any man with enough ambition and nerve and Joe Coughlin, the son of the Boston Police Superintendent, long ago turned his back on his strict upbringing for the spoils of being an outlaw. But even among criminals there are rules and Joe breaks a big one: crossing a powerful mob boss by stealing his money and his moll. The fiery affair ends in tragedy, setting Joe on a path of revenge, ambition, romance and betrayal that propels him out of Boston and up the ladder of Tampa’s steamy rum-running underworld.

Lehane also wrote Mystic River and Shutter Island so lots of potential for this one. The film is due out on January 13, 2017.
