Ben Affleck is apparently in talks to star in, direct and produce new gun-toting action flick Line Of Sight.

The Town filmmaker - who has just begun work on his latest movie, Argo, and is expecting his third child with wife Jennifer Garner - is in negotiations with Warner Bros to front the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie is to be told from the point of view of a first-person shooter, like a video game, and follows an elite commando squad trying to transport cargo in the midst of a global threat.

Alex Heineman came up with the idea and will executive produce the movie, which was recently re scripted by Peter O'Brien, the man who wrote the game Halo: Reach for Xbox 360.

Ben has just begun shooting political thriller Argo, a cinematic re-creation of the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979.

As well as directing, he is playing CIA negotiator Tony Mendez who attempts to rescue the hostages.
