Ben Affleck To Produce Film About FIFA Corruption Scandal? | Film News
Warner Bros. has won a bidding war for the rights to Houses Of Deceit, an unpublished book written by investigative reporter Ken Bensinger (BuzzFeed), based on the American FIFA executive Chuck Blazer and the part he played in the FIFA soccer scandal. Ben Affleck will be producing the film alongside Matt Damon with their production company Pearl Street Films.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gavin O’Connor (The Accountant) is onboard to direct the film and Anthony Tambakis (Warrior) will write the script. The FIFA scandal ripped the world of Football (Soccer) apart recently, so it will be interesting to see how it is portrayed in both the film and the book which is said to be released in 2017.
