The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford star Casey Affleck and director Andrew Dominik will reportedly re-team on a new film, according to The New York Times.

Affleck spoke to CBS Radio in Washington, and said of the proposed project: "I don't know if I'm allowed to talk about it, but it's a Boston-based crime... It's based on a novel set in Boston, but it's not going to be set in Boston, unfortunately."

The brilliant actor really cemented his leading man status with another Boston set crime film, Gone Baby Gone, and has now also moved into directing like his older brother, Ben. His "documentary" I'm Still Here stars Joaquin Phoenix as himself as is released in The IFI on October 1st.
