We have some updates for you on upcoming projects from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, thanks to Vulture. We will start with the bad news first. Warner Bros. has decided against making Damon's next movie about a small-town salesman. Damon was initially set to make his directing debut until Gus Van Sant came aboard to direct.
In other news we have some news about Ben Affleck next film after Argo. Affleck is set to direct a big screen take on Stephen King’s The Stand, "about survivors of a chemically weaponized super-flu." Screenwriter David Kajganich has now been hired to write the script. Kajganich recently gained attention for his draft of Stephen King's It for Warner Bros. Both projects are being produced by Roy Lee and Doug Davison.
