Glory Road: According to Variety, Ben Affleck has committed to star in Glory Road, a Jerry Bruckheimer-produced Disney drama about the college hoops coach who shattered the color barrier by leading the first all-black lineup of players to the NCAA championship. Affleck will play coach Don Haskins, whose 1966 Texas Western team beat an all-white team from Kentucky.

The project reunites Affleck with Bruckheimer, with whom he worked on the Michael Bay-directed films Armageddon and Pearl Harbor. No director has been set yet for the project which begins shooting in early 2004.
