The Black List-approved script is set up at Sony and is described as "the true story of Abscam, the FBI's 1980 undercover sting operation of Congress to root out corruption, which was the brainchild of the world's greatest con man."
Ben Affleck is also considering The Trade and Replay, both of which are set up at Warner Bros.
The Trade was written by Dave Mandel and concerns a pair of New York Yankees pitchers who swapped wives back in the 1970s.
Jason Smilovic adapted Ken Grimwood's novel Replay, which follows a 43-year-old radio journalist who dies and gets to relive his life over and over in his 18-year-old body.
Ben Affleck has not yet decided on a script. We'll keep you posted!
