An anonymous source said,

Well, it is quite expected from one’s wife if he or she goes around proclaiming his or her love for another individual and plans to spend time with them.

Back in 2001, the two of them met at a party and they instantly hit off as they both regarded the other as the “King of Boston”. After their conversation, Ben Affleck was like, “The king thinks I’m the king. I realized then that I loved him.”
Jennifer Lopez Will Star Alongside Ben Affleck in Unstoppable
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez will share the same screen after a massive two decades and this time around both of them have a lot of backing and support against their name, unlike the first time they made a movie together which utterly failed at both the box office and in critic reviews.
The movie will be based on a sports drama type that follows the story of Anthony Robles, a wrestler who became the All-American Wrestler thrice, with a disability of being one-legged. The movie will be overseen by the production company that Affleck and Matt Damon created, Artists Equity and though no further updates about the movie have been made, it is only a matter of time before news and details come out regarding the movie.

Ben Affleck is currently working on Air with his best friend Matt Damon and the movie is also a sports drama type but the movie is about Nike courting a legend. The movie will most probably show the life the NBA legend Michael Jordan led and what led him to choose Nike over Adidas, and in turn completely flip the industry as Nike then was mediocre at best and now it is not a force to be reckoned with. The production is being supported by Amazon Studios and Affleck directing and starring in it, however, though the movie is all about Michael Jordan, the NBA superstar will not be portrayed in the movie.
Air will premiere on April 5, 2023.
Unstoppable does not have a release date yet.
