Ben Affleck may bring major movie production to Savannah in early 2014

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Were you a little disappointed when you heard the next movie they're making in Savannah was "Spongebob: The Sequel?"  You probably were not alone, if our Facebook page comment section was any indication.  

WTOC has learned of a new project in the making. It's no secret the newest Batman, Ben Affleck, visited Savannah over the last few months scouting locations for a new project. We have found out the project is the big budget adaptation of a Prohibition era gangster story based on the original novel "Live by Night."

It's a Warner Brothers project with a rumored major budget and could film in Savannah early next year, possibly spring. They say Affleck is the director and star.  We'll let you know when we get more details on the movie, but that too might be next year before official confirmation, as Affleck is busy with the latest "Superman" movie.
