The Argo star had been due to take the male lead in the movie, about a veteran conman who becomes involved with a girl who is new to the trade.
But Variety reports that Ben's busy schedule meant he had to pull out of the project, from writer/directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.
Dad-of-three Ben is writing, directing, producing and starring in the Dennis Lehane novel adaptation Live By Night and is also developing Stephen King's The Stand and an untitled Whitey Bulger biopic.
