Affleck will work with director Zack Snyder and screenwriter Chris Terrio on the script and weigh in on post-production, reports a website. Affleck previously has directing credits on films like Gone Baby Gone and The Town. He also produced, directed and starred in Argo, which won him a Best Picture Oscar.
