Ben Affleck to star in Gone Girl?

Ben Affleck looks set to star in new thriller Gone Girl.

The Hollywood actor and director is in negotiations about the part in David Fincher's movie, reported Deadline.

If he signs up, Argo star Ben will play a man whose life spirals out of control when his wife disappears and people start to think he killed her.

So far no other casting details have been announced for the film, which is based on a book by Gillian Flynn.

Ben, 40, is apparently so keen on the project that he has sought permission from Warner Bros to delay his next directorial effort, Live By Night, so that he could shoot his role.

The actor will also be starring in Live By Night, which is an adaptation of a novel by Dennis Lehane.
