Deadline is hearing word that Ben Affleck and his ‘The Accountant’ director Gavin O’Connor are in talks to reteam for ‘The Has-Been.’

Based on a spec script by ‘Out Of The Furnace’ scribe Brad Ingelsby, the film centres on “a former basketball all-star who has lost his wife and family foundation in a struggle with addiction. He attempts to regain his soul and salvation by becoming the coach of a disparate, ethnically mixed high school basketball team at his alma mater.”

Affleck will also take a producers credit on the project, alongside Jennifer Todd, Mark Ciardi and Gordon Grey.
