That Affleck family. You just can’t stop ‘em scribbling scripts or stepping behind the camera.

Despite big bro Ben keeping him busy in Boston-set crime tale Gone, Baby, Gone, Casey Affleck has found the time to write a screenplay of his own.

Warner Brothers has snapped up the animated adventure script Aardvark Art’s Ark, which follows an animal family on the famed Biblical Noah’s ark. Somehow we’re not sure it’ll end up an Oscar-winning effort, but hey – how many scripts have YOU sold to Warner Bros today?

Stay tuned as next week, as Ben and Jennifer Garner’s infant daughter Violet announces that she’s written an epic historical trilogy about nappies.
