If Ben Affleck is trying to make us forget about Forces of Nature  Reindeer Games Gigli, well, he's certainly doing a great job of it, thanks to his two sensational directorial efforts Gone Baby Gone and The Town.

And it looks like he might be one step closer toward obliterating those bombs from our collective memory forever with news that he could be teaming up with none other than George Clooney on an upcoming political thriller.

A source confirms to E! News a story by the Hollywood Reporter that Affleck is in talks to helm Argo, which Clooney is producing with his partner Grant Heslov.

The movie, based on a Wired magazine article revolving around the 1979-1981Iranian hostage crisis, would focus on the successful effort made by the CIA and the Canadian government to rescue six U.S. diplomats from Tehran by fabricating a scenario that the six were actually part of a film crew scouting locations for a movie called Argo.

Sounds pretty impressive to us. Heck, this might even help us forget about Bounce too.
