Ben Affleck scouting in Georgia for ‘Live by Night’?


Ben Affleck was in Georgia last week to scout locations for an upcoming film. The Brunswick News reports that Affleck checked out Glynn County scenery with Scott McQuade, executive director of the Golden Isles Convention and Visitors Bureau. McQuade didn’t disclose the movie’s name, but as far as we know Affleck’s still in pre-production for the Boston story “Live by Night” by local author Dennis Lehane. Part of Lehane’s book takes place in Tampa, so a Georgia trip would make sense.
