Miller, Saldana join Affleck film

Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana and Elle Fanning have landed key roles in Ben Affleck's Live By Night.

The three actresses are on board the Prohibition-era drama in leading roles, reported Deadline.

The film about Joe Coughlin, the son of a cop who descends into a life of crime, was pushed back after Ben was cast as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, but it seems the star is now moving ahead with the project, which he will both star in and direct.

British actress Sienna has been cast as a girl Joe falls for, while Avatar's Zoe will be a woman he meets later when he is involved in the crime world.

Maleficent star Elle, 16, will play a sheriff's daughter who wants to be an actress.

Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way is producing Live By Night, which is based on Dennis Lehane's novel of the same name.

It is expected to be released in 2016.
