'Keeper of the Lost Cities' Movie: Batman Star Ben Affleck Lands Big Break on Disney Film!

Ben Affleck will have another movie under his belt after scoring a critical role in the "Keeper of the Lost Cities" movie of Disney.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Affleck is set to direct the adaptation of Shannon Messenger's book series. The "Keeper of the Lost Cities" movie will be created for Disney with the help of other award-winning film experts.

The 48-year-old "Batman" actor reportedly tied up with Kate Gritmon to write the script. It will still follow the middle-grade fantasy series' plot about the life of 12-year-old Sophie who has telepathy.

Meanwhile, Deadline reported that Madison Ainley--whose works include "Justice League," "Live by Night," and "Triple Frontier"--will be the executive producer.

The book series has eight installments, with its ninth book already on the way. It has a total sales of 2.5 million copies combined.

The Book 8.5 Unlocked, which Messenger published last November, grabbed the award for Best Young Reader Book of 2020 by Barnes & Noble.
