The Hollywood of the South continues to grow day by day. Today we’re following Ben Affleck as he films his new thriller Deep Water in and around the lower Marigny of New Orleans.
Affleck has been in NOLA for some time now, directing, and producing his new film starring himself and Ana De Armas. Deep Water is an erotic thriller, which is based on the 1957 novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith. Earlier this year, we reported that Affleck was looking for NOLA based couples to join the film.
