Ben Affleck is focusing on what’s most important — his health and family.

The actor has dropped out of Netflix’s Triple Frontier, according to multiple reports. Affleck is going to “take some time to focus on his wellness and his family,” reports Deadline.

Affleck was tapped for the starring role earlier this year after both Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum declined due to scheduling conflicts.

A source previously told PEOPLE that the actor is focused on fatherhood, co-parenting his three kids with ex Jennifer Garner.

“Ben’s family still remains of the utmost importance to him,” said the source.

In March, Affleck announced he had completed treatment for alcohol addiction.

Affleck, 44, who recently went public with his romance with Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus, is set to appear at Comic-Con later this week for Justice League.
