Ben Affleck Confirms His Next Project Will Star Jennifer Lopez
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon love working together. Affleck’s Air, starring Damon, premiered at the SXSW and will have its United States premiere on April 5. The two Boston-born actors are planning their next project - a movie starring Jennifer Lopez.
While the Air has yet to have its US premiere, Affleck and Damon are planning their next big project. They will be teaming up once again for an upcoming biopic they are developing, and they just confirmed that Affleck’s wife, Jennifer Lopez, is set to star. The pair sat with CBS News to discuss Air and their future ventures.
Affleck and Damon recently formed their production company called Artists Equity. Air is the first film under the said company. After working on it, they work on their next project.
"Air is their company's first offering, with more to come soon. We're just getting rolling on working again with Amazon to do the story of a wrestler named Anthony Robles, who was born with one leg and won a National Championship for Arizona State."
There were reports that Lopez was set to star in the said project, and Affleck initially tried to deflect the question and said,
"We always hire the very best performers. And in this case, every single person cast so far is the absolute best choice.
After he was pressed on, the actor just confirmed the reports and said, "Yes, I believe Jennifer Lopez may be doing that movie. Can't make it look like she's doing it as a favor to me, but actually, she is.”
Ben Affleck on Working with His Wife
Affleck expressed his excitement after confirming he’s set to work with his wife, Lopez. He said, "What fun, what a joy to do something with her, see her be great, work with your wife, work with your best friend. Ultimately, your work becomes the lion's share of what defines your life regarding the time you spend. And if you don't like who you're working with, and if you have difficulty or trouble at work, I think it's one of the things that can cause depression, anxiety, and pain for people."
The actor went on to comment about working with people you love. He said, "And conversely, [if> you love the people at work, you probably have a pretty good life, you know?”
Air premiered at the SXSW last March 18 and is scheduled to be released by Amazon Studios in the United States on April 5.
