Justin Timberlake & Ben Affleck: 'Runner, Runner' Co-Stars

Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck are set to star in the film Runner, Runner, which takes place in the world of online gambling.

The 31-year-old singer/actor’s deal is closed while Ben is in final negotiations, according to THR.

The movie will be directed by Brad Furman and begins production in June in Puerto Rico.
