Matt Damon, Ben Affleck Big Screen Reunion Rumors Fly

Posted: Updated:

Will Matt Damon and Ben Affleck reunite for a new project?

Page Six reports that the "Good Will Hunting" co-stars are being courted by Harvey Weinstein for his next film, "A Speck in the Sea."

The movie is to be adapted from an story written by Paul Tough for The New York Times Magazine. On Friday, Deadline.com posted a press release announcing that The Weinstein Company had successfully attained the rights to the story. The project will be produced by Rachael Horovitz, Jason Blum and Harvey Weinstein, with Bob Weinstein serving as executive producer.

The film will portray the harrowing and true story of lobsterman John Aldridge, who fell overboard into the Atlantic Ocean in July of 2013 and was forced to use his rubber boots as a flotation device for 12 hours before he was rescued.

Huffington Post Entertainment has contacted reps for Affleck and Damon to confirm the Page Six report. This post will be updated if and when they respond.
