After the runaway success of Argo, Ben Affleck is once again set to direct and star in another political thriller, this time set in Africa.

Will Staples, who is also attached to the latest James Cameron’s project Myth, has been brought in to write the script. Whilst Affleck has managed to make a name for himself behind the camera over recent years, it will be interesting to see whether he can be as successful a second time around with another political thriller.

The plot focusses on a group of mercenaries who are hired to kill a warlord that has been victimising his own people.
