Ben Affleck stars as Batman in this weekend’s blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but he’s not done directing, either.

Warner Bros. announced Tuesday that Affleck’s Live by Nightan adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s Prohibition-era crime novel, has been scheduled for an Oct. 20, 2017 release. Like Argo and The Town, Affleck also stars in the film, as the prodigal son of a Boston police captain (Brendan Gleeson) who grows to be a criminal gangster. The stacked cast also includes Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana, Chris Messina, Scott Eastwood, and Miguel, among others.
