Ben Affleck must be crushed.
Matt Damon is gearing up to make his directorial debut. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the 41-year-old Oscar winner will also star in the project, which he co-wrote with The Office's John Krasinski.
The film is said to be similar to 2000's legal drama Erin Brokovich, although plot details remain scarce. The movie tells the story of a salesman (Damon) whose life is changed when he happens upon a particular small town.
