Ben Affleck And Matt Damon Working On A Wife-Swapping Movie

My, how far Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have come together in the past 13 years. They’ve gone from being 20-something bachelors doodling math equations on mirrors to both being stand-up citizens with wives and multiple children. So I kind of love that their next movie together is about … two friends who swap wives. “The Trade”—which Ben is writing with his younger brother Casey, and in which he will presumably star alongside Matt—tells the real-life story of two Yankees pitchers in the 1970s, Mike Kekich and Fritz Peterson, who decided to trade wives. Mrs. Peterson moved in with Kekich while Mrs. Kekich went to sharing a bed with Peterson. When word got out about the situation, a scandal erupted. Apparently, Suzanne Kekich and Fritz Peterson stayed a couple and are still living together in New Jersey. But Mike Kekich—who has since remarried and moved to New Mexico — is pissed about the possible movie. “Kekich is panic-stricken,” a source tells the NY Post. “He has moved away and has a new identity. He is freaked out that those working on the movie found out where he is. He isn’t too keen on having the scandal dredged up again after all this time.”

Several women are currently being considered to play the two wives. Naomi Watts, Rachel Weisz, and Rebecca Hall are apparently frontrunners. Though I have a feeling that in real life, these guys will stay with their respective spouses. Though Jennifer Garner and Luciana Bozan do look a touch alike. Just sayin’. [NY Post]
