When ever I think of Ben Affleck, I can't shake the image of him in South Park and Gigili.

Has anyone here actually read the novel and what it consists of in an intimate way? He's about the most unlikely choice I can imagine.

He always said he was interesting in eventually doing a big budget type of film.

That's not what I mean. This is hard science fiction and fantasy that would be incredibly difficult for any director to pull off, regardless of their exposure to those genres as-is, let alone getting a guy whose only had two successful films, one of which is a pretty much a mystery drama and the other a crime drama that were tonally/thematically/narratively somewhat similar.

EDIT: Just going on about what an awesome choice he is without understanding the materiel is just... reasonless and without logic.

He's made two amazing films. That's all the logic I need.
