Why Ben Affleck Is Exiting Netflix Movie ‘Triple Frontier'

Actor Ben Affleck is dropping out of the Netflix thriller “Triple Frontier” for personal reasons.

Deadline reports that Affleck is no longer part of the project since he is “going to take some time to focus on his wellness and his family.”

In March, Ben revealed that he completed treatment for alcohol addiction. At the time, he wrote on Facebook, “I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step.”

Affleck’s decision to exit came just weeks after news broke that he is dating “SNL" producer Lindsay Shookus. A source recently told People magazine, "He enjoys spending time with her… Ben’s family still remains of the utmost importance to him."
