Despite Ben Affleck dropping out of any future massive DCEU projects, the actor and director maintains a tight schedule for the next couple of years. His newest film “The Way Back” is about to be released March 6, but that’s not the last we’ll see of Affleck in the year 2020.

“The Way Back” is a movie that is deeply personal for Affleck, 47, who has had some public struggles recently. The film follows a former athlete who quit at his prime, only to come back and coach a much younger team. The coach that Affleck plays suffers from some addictions which ultimately led to his personal failures as an athlete.

In real life, Affleck also struggled with addiction, citing alcoholism as something that nearly destroyed his life. Recently, Affleck interviewed with the New York Times and spoke candidly and honestly about his addiction and how he attempted to “drink the pain away.”

Now that the actor is on the upswing and working harder than ever, he’s focusing his attention on only the films he’s passionate about. At press time, there are at least three known projects Affleck is releasing.

"Deep Water" (2020)

Affleck will star alongside “Blade Runner 2049” and “Knives Out” actress Ana de Armas. The two of them play a married couple who have lost their affection and soon begin to resent and hate each other. What follows is one twisted game after another that each has deadly implications. Based on a novel by Patricia Highsmith, this film was adapted by “Euphoria” showrunner Sam Levinson.

"The Last Duel" (2020)

Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon) and Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver) are former friends who are forced into a fight to the death following an accusation of rape pins the two Frenchmen against each other. The film is written by writing partners Damon and Affleck, who also co-stars in the film, and will be directed by Ridley Scott.

"Ghost Army"

Affleck will direct and star in this film that is based on a true story. During WWII, the U.S. military puts together a different kind of team of recruits, meant to fool the German army. What they create is an artificial base, full of mannequins and inflatable tanks that are lifelike-enough to actually work. This project is still currently in pre-production and doesn’t, at press time, have a release date.
