Ridley Scott has signed on to direct and produce “The Kind One,” starring Casey Affleck.
Set in the 1930s, the film tells the story of an amnesiac who finds himself working for a mobster. A murderous thug named “the Kind One,” Affleck’s character falls in love with the “Kind One’s” girlfriend.
The film is also being produced by Jules Daly (The Assassination of Jesse James), and Sean Bailey (Gone Baby Gone).
The story of the film sounds excellent, I’m a big fan of both Ridley Scott and Casey Affleck. Affleck especially has been showing a lot of chops lately, ‘Jesse James,’ was probably one of my favorite movies of last year.
