We have learned today via Variety that Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake are going to star in a new dramatic thriller called Runner, Runner. JT recently starred in In Time opposite Amanda Seyfried and has reportedly already signed onto the new movie, while Ben is in final negotiations. We don’t know much yet about the film, except that it is set within a $30 billion world of illegal online gambling. Oh, and Leo DiCaprio is producing.
The movie will be directed by Brad Furman who did Lincoln Lawyer, and one of the producers is none other than Leonardo DiCaprio. The topic of offshore online gambling is seriously relevant and interesting, and I have the feeling it could take an Ocean’s Eleven type of approach, but that is just my hunch. We don’t know enough about the new movie to make a real call about casting or whether this is one to get excited about, but look, it’s Ben and JT, and Leo is on board. In my opinion, that is enough to start getting excited. I actually think that Ben and Justin could have great chemistry together. What do you think about this duo together?
