After Ben Affleck gets done playing Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he'll move on to his next directorial project, Live by Night, which has just added new cast members Zoe Saldana, Elle Fanning and Sienna Miller.
The project reunites actor/director/writer Ben Affleck with Boston author Dennis Lehane, whose novel Gone Baby Gone was adapted into the filmmaker's directorial debut of the same name. Live by Night is based on characters from Dennis Lehane's book The Given Day and brings them into the Prohibition Era. The plot follows Joe Coughlin (Ben Affleck), the son of a police captain who gets dragged into the world of organized crime.
Zoe Saldana plays Graciella Suarez, who Joe meets while he's on business in Tampa. Sienna Miller plays Emma, who Joe falls for towards the beginning of the story, while Elle Fanning plays Loretta Figgis, a sheriff's daughter and aspiring actress who gets into trouble.
Zoe Saldana can currently be seen in the blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, and she will next be seen in The Book of Life. Elle Fanning is coming off Maleficent and she also voices a role in the upcoming stop-motion animated feature The Boxtrolls. Sienna Miller is starring in the upcoming Foxcatcher and American Sniper.
