Ben Affleck creates a new American Revolution

Hollywood star Ben Affleck is writing a pilot script called Resistance, a fictional story about a US that's divided into separate countries after being attacked by terrorists. The series will follow a group of citizens that begins fighting a war to reunite the un-United States.

Affleck's previous forays into television have included the contest/reality show Project Greenlight, in which hopeful filmmakers were tasked with writing and directing their first movies, and the short-lived drama/interactive game show Push, Nevada. He also won an Oscar, along with actor Matt Damon, for writing the screenplay to the 1997 film Good Will Hunting.

Affleck has also been in the news lately for another reason: his wedding to, and expected baby with, Alias star Jennifer Garner. The two actors met while filming Pearl Harbor, and romance blossomed on the set of Daredevil. Recently, they wed in the Caribbean and are now expecting a baby in January.

Talk about productive!

Let's keep our fingers crossed that he can stay sober enough to finish the script. Let's also hope he has Matt Damon on speed-dial. Something tells me that Harvard grad Matt did all the "heavy lifting" when they wrote Good Will Hunting.

Awesome news. All of it. Busy man is putting it mildly. His movies may have bombed but it in know way makes him a bad actor. He's an amazing actor.He can do anything. Keep it up Ben.

This show sounds different which is good. As to wether the show itself will be good, only time will tell. I'll be watching to find out. Let's hope that the lovely J.Gar will wash away all that bad luck J.Ho gave him.

Why is this man a "star"? His movies bomb. His career has never produced anything of any real note on its own. Without Matt Damon, he would be relegated to the rubbish heap, where he belongs. His hype is inversely proportional to his achievements.
