Hollywood actor Ben Affleck is reportedly set to return to his writing roots, with a new TV project called RESISTANCE.

Affleck, who alongside pal Matt Damon won an Academy Award in 1998 for penning acclaimed movie Good Will Hunting, is reportedly in talks to write and produce the TV pilot.

The drama will revolve around a band of patriots trying to revive the US Bill Of Rights and reunify an America which has been split into different nations by terrorist attacks.
