Ben Affleck wears Mr Average outfit to film Triple Frontier (and hides THAT midlife crisis tattoo)

Filming is finally underway for the Netflix movie Triple Frontier.

Ben Affleck, 45, was snapped in normal-guy attire in downtown Honolulu, Hawaii while shooting a scene for the upcoming film.

The film, which is expected to be re-titled, is finally being made after years in limbo.

A series of photographs showed the Batman v Superman actor shooting a scene while dressed in khakis, a tucked in blue polo shirt, and a pair of grey New Balance sneakers. 

Ben heads the film's ensemble cast, which also features Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Pedro Pascal, Garrett Hedlund and Adria Arjona.

J.C. Chandor is directing the Mark Boal-penned drama, which is being produced by Charles Roven, Alex Gartner, and Andy Horwitz.

Last July, Ben dropped out of the film to focus on personal issues and focus on his family.

Back then, he was going to star in it with brother Casey Affleck and Mahershala Ali, but both have had to back out since due to scheduling conflicts.

The Accountant star stayed on the film nonetheless, and has been living and training in Oahu, with filming finally begging on Monday.

According to Deadline, 'Netflix took on the picture after Paramount let go of it after Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum dropped out weeks before production was to begin.'

The script was originally written by Mark Boal for his Hurt Locker partner Kathryn Bigelow to direct.

The film takes its title from its setting in the infamous border zone of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, however, that area has become less dangerous since the movie was originally penned.

Chandor has updated the script in recent years, and the picture will shoot in Hawaii, Colombia, and California.

A little over a week ago, the A-lister was snapped with his now infamous tattoo on the beach in Honolulu, Hawaii while preparing to film Triple Frontier.

The enormous colorful tattoo of a phoenix covers his entire back, in addition to a pair of designs on each shoulder.

Affleck took to the tide with actors Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Oscar Isaac toting lifeguard equipment, as the quartet trained for the Netflix movie.
