Ben Affleck goes shopping for fishing equipment, gets cast in Terrence Malick’s next?

Well, that is, if the thing ever gets made which, with the way TREE OF LIFE is going, may never happen.

A few months back, rumors began circulating that, after a photograph was snapped of both Brad Pitt and Terrence Malick, that the two were heading back into the studio for some work on the hotly anticipated project. Well, in a similar sort of rumor, we may have just found the lead for Malick’s next film.

According to Tulsa World, Ben Affleck, along with wife Jennifer Garner, was spotted in the auteur’s hometown, Bartlesville, Oklahoma, with Affleck allegedly looking for fishing equipment, as he was working on a film in which he would be a fisherman.

For those who may not remember, the film was originally talked about all the way back in February, which linked the film to a start date of this fall. While that has begun to look damn near impossible, the film did garner a heavy cast, with Christian Bale, Javier Bardem, Rachel McAdams, and Olga Kurylenko all being attached to the yet-untitled, and pretty much unknown, project.

However, officials for the state have said that after the currently-shooting BRINGING UP BOBBY, there are no plans to shoot a new film. Could Affleck have simply been meeting with the filmmaker, and decided to shop for a film he just got the lead role in? Or is this just random conjecture that no real footing? Bartlesville doesn’t seem like the hottest of spots, particularly for A list movie stars, and knowing that it’s Malick’s hometown, has me thinking it may be a little bit rumor, and a lot bit news.

    Also agree with #1. Every single time First Blood is on TV I watch it (which has been happening a lot on AMC). Just a damn good movie. Really original protagonist and some really good antagonists too.
