(FROM HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) ? Gone Baby Gone producers Ben Affleck and Sean Bailey are re-teaming for Miramax’s movie adaptation of Marcus Sakey’s debut novel, The Blade Itself, which Esquire magazine named one of the five best of 2007. The story is about two friends who grew up in Chicago committing petty crimes together. As they grew older, their paths diverged, but when they are reunited later in life, one has to decide how far he’s willing to go to protect their secrets from the past. Affleck, who both produced and directed Gone Baby Gone, is currently acting in State of Play for Universal. Bailey’s projects currently in development include Tron, Liberty, and Sabbatical, which stars Jennifer Garner. (Hollywood Reporter)
