Affleck & Damon to Reunite for Disney Drama

by | February 8, 2006 | Comments

Variety reports that old buddies Ben Affleck and Matt Damon will reunite to star in a Disney-backed "based on actual events" legal drama. And it’s not a Kevin Smith flick!

"Disney’s Touchstone has made a deal for a pic based on a true story that will star Ben Affleck and Matt Damon as lawyers who spent 15 years overturning a murder conviction.

Affleck will play Michael Banks and Damon will be J. Gordon Cooney, two lawyers at a Philadelphia firm that took on a pro bono appeal that turned into a 15-year crusade. The lawyers won nine stays of execution for death-row inmate John Thompson and finally got him exonerated of all charges."

Films that have included both Ben Affleck and Matt Damon include "School Ties," "Good Will Hunting," "Chasing Amy," "Dogma," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back," and "Jersey Girl," if we’re including jokey cameo appearances.
