Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake to See Where the Chips Fall in 'Runner Runner'
Next film from director of 'The Lincoln Lawyer'
Both Affleck and Timberlake have broken out of their respective boxes recently - with Affleck establishing himself as a talented writer and director, and Timberlake showing a wide range of abilities when it comes to his acting roles. The involvement of the pair of them elevates what sounds like a relatively simple crime drama. Even better? The film will be directed by Brad Furman, who most recently helmed the surprisingly stylish and adept "Lincoln Lawyer." The film has also been penned by David Levien and Brian Koppelman, who have long worked in this genre, with films like "Rounders," "Knockaround Guys," and "Ocean's Thirteen" filling out their resumes.
The film is set to start filming in June, so we'll likely be seeing this sooner rather than later.
