Justin Timberlake & Ben Affleck: 'Runner, Runner' Co-Stars
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.
Runner, Runner revolves around the world of offshore online gaming and an increasingly tense relationship between a business founder and his protege.
The screenplay was written by Brian Koppelman and David Levien, whose 1998 thriller Rounders involved high-stakes backroom poker.
