'The Town' helmer is said seeing the script which recently came in number 30 on 2010 Black List and tells 'the true story of Abscam.'

Moving on from "The Town", Ben Affleck is now looking for his next directing project. Rumor has it, the actor/helmer is now putting "American Bullshit" which is written by Eric Warren on the list of his potential project.

"American Bullshit" is now set up at Sony Pictures after coming in number 30 on 2010 Black List, a compilation of favorite screenplays that would not be released during the calendar year. It tells "the true story of Abscam, the FBI's 1980 undercover sting operation of Congress to root out corruption which was the brainchild of the world's greatest con man."

Deadline Hollywood notes that Affleck has not committed to it yet and has several other projects under consideration like "The Trade" scripted by Dave Mandel, and "Replay" adapted from a Ken Grimwood novel to a script by Jason Smilovic. He has also seen "The Man of Steel" and "Tales From the Gangster Squad" but the former finally goes to Zack Snyder and the latter is now with Ruben Fleischer.

Aside from his directing gig, Ben Affleck is also said to take one of the lead roles in "The Trade" which centers on two New York Yankees pitchers who swapped wives in 1973. Matt Damon reportedly will play the other pitcher. Affleck and his brother Casey Affleck also wrote the movie.
