LOS ANGELES, June 18 (UPI) -- Ben Affleck, who last conquered the boxoffice as a crime-fighting superhero in "Daredevil," is now eying a pair of comedies.

The Hollywood Reporter said Affleck is considering the Walt Disney Co.'s "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past" and New Line Cinema's "Sex Talk."

Affleck is near a deal to star in "Ghosts," pending the hiring of a director, and is attached to "Sex Talk." Neither project has been greenlighted yet,and it is possible Affleck could sign on to do both projects.

"Ghosts," being produced by LivePlanet's Sean Bailey and Chris Moore with "Air Force One" producer Jon Shestack, is described as in the vein of "A Christmas Carol" and centers on a bachelor who goes to his younger brother's wedding, where he is visited by the ghosts of his past girlfriends. It was written by John Lucas and Scott Moore.

"Sex Talk," being produced by Team Todd, centers on a sports reporter who finds popularity by applying sports terminology and strategy to solve the problems people have with their sex lives.
