The Harry Houdini movie that Disney has been trying to make for four years is back on track. It looks like the studio has finally found its first actor to recruit, two-time Academy Award winner, Ben Affleck. Apparently, the former Batman will appear in a secondary role.
The new Harry Houdini movie will be based on the novel "The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America's First Superhero" by William Kalush & Larry Sloman. Harry Houdini was an American illusionist and escapist, known for his impossible escapes which he enacted chained, tied, wearing a straitjacket, etc.
