David O'Connor (The Accountant) and Ben Affleck are looking to work together again. WB is closing in on a deal to adapt "The Has-Been".
O’Connor would direct with Affleck playing the former basketball star. Affleck will product alongside Jennifer Todd, Mark Ciardi and Gordon Grey, and O’Connor and Ingelsby are expected to produce as well.“It centers on a former basketball all-star, who has lost his wife and family foundation in a struggle with addiction. He attempts to regain his soul and salvation by becoming the coach of a disparate ethnically mixed high school basketball team at his alma mater.”
