Ben Affleck has started production for his newest film and he sure is proud of it.

On Wednesday, Affleck took to all of his social media platforms to share a photo from his first day on set of Live by Night, where he not only stars in the film alongside Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana, Elle Fanning and Chris Cooper, but also directs it and helped to write the screenplay.

“First day. First shot. #livebynightmovie,” he captioned the photo of himself and a young boy walking along a wooden pathway on a marsh.

The film – based on the award-winning crime novel written by Dennis Lehane – takes place in the Prohibition Era and focuses on a group of individuals living in a world of crime.

There’s no release date for the movie yet, but it’s expected to hit theaters sometime in 2017.
