Gone Baby Gone Team Gears Up for Next Drama: The Blade Itself



Ben Affleck and Co. will again team up to produce another crime thriller, though this time they're abandoning the Afflecks' beloved Boston and relocating to Chicago. Like Affleck's last project Gone Baby Gone, this one's based on a gritty crime novel, Marcus Sakey's debut tome The Blade Itself.

The story follows "two Chicago childhood friends who made their reputation committing petty crimes as kids before choosing different paths in life. When they are reunited years later, one is forced to decide how far he will go to protect the secrets of his past."

Esquire named Sakey's novel one of the five best reads of 2007. So, whaddya say, readers? Shall I put The Blade Itself on the list of future titles to read for the Buzz Book Club?
