Affleck stars in the film opposite his longtime friend and collaborator Matt Damon, who plays sneaker salesman Sonny Vaccaro. The film shows Vaccaro’s efforts to ink Michael Jordan via his family, friends, ex-coaches and advisors at a time Nike was the third-selling shoe company.
The motion picture about the footwear giant comes from a script by Alex Convery titled Air Jordan that was featured on the 2021 Black List, according to Deadline.
Affleck is engaged to Jennifer Lopez, 52, who has made multiple visits to the set of the film during production.
On Sunday, Affleck and Lopez took Samuel to the luxury vehicle dealership 777 Exotics, where Affleck permitted his son to get into the driver’s seat of a yellow Lamborghini that had the engine running while Lopez was seated in the rear driver’s side, TMZ reported.

According to TMZ, Samuel ‘put the Lambo in reverse,’ at which point the vehicle made contact with the front driver’s end of a white BMW that was parked behind it.
In a video of the incident displayed on the website, the rear passenger side of the Lamborghini was seen making contact with the front end of the BMW while Samuel was in the driver’s seat with the door open, as Affleck was positioned between the door and the driver’s seat.
After the vehicles made contact, Affleck leaned into the Lamborghini and then walked back to look at the point where the vehicles made contact, at which point Samuel got out of the car and checked out the spot.
A rep for Affleck told TMZ that nothing was damaged and all involved parties were fine in the wake of the incident, while a 777 Exotics employee told the outlet that the vehicles were parked closely to one another, and that ‘there was no accident.’

A source told People Monday of the incident: ‘Ben was at the dealership to test drive a new car … Sam seemed very interested in the exotic cars. Ben let him get into the driver’s seat of a very expensive Lamborghini, [and] the car ended up reversing into another parked car. There seemed to be no damage to the cars though.’
Affleck ‘very much regretted letting Sam get into the driver’s seat’ and ‘seemed upset about it,’ the source told the outlet.
