Ben Affleck will rewrite, direct and star in The Town, a Warner Bros. adaptation of the Chuck Hogan novel "The Prince of Thieves," reports Variety. Graham King is producing through his GK Films.

Affleck would play a career thief who becomes smitten by the manager of a bank.

The project which most recently had director Adrian Lyne attached would be based in Charlestown, Mass., a gritty blue-collar Boston suburb similar to the one that Affleck captured in his directorial debut, Gone Baby Gone.

Affleck is doing a rewrite on the most recent draft by Peter Craig and Hogan.
