LOS ANGELES, July 26 (UPI) -- Ben Affleck is attached to the Walt Disney Co. adventure feature "Nowhere Men," The Hollywood Reporter said Monday.

The project is described as "Ocean's Eleven" meets "Men in Black" -- revolving around a group of extraordinarily gifted people who carry out covert missions.

The paper also reported Fox 2000 is teaming up with Forest Whitaker's Spirit Dance Entertainment for a remake of "The Girl Can't Help It."

The 1956 sex-comedy starred Tom Ewell and Jayne Mansfield in the story of a talent agent who is hired by a mobster to transform his talentless girlfriend into a big star. The original -- directed by Frank Tashlin -- featured music by contemporary music stars including Eddie Cochran, Fats Domino, Little Richard, the Platters and Gene Vincent.
