Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are enjoying their time on set together!

The longtime friends and fellow Oscar winners, who picked up the Best Screenplay prize together for Good Will Hunting, were spotted on the set of their Nike movie on Thursday (June 30) in Los Angeles.

The upcoming movie is based on the true-life story of former Nike executive Sonny Vaccarro, who Matt is playing.

Ben – who is directing and co-wrote the movie – will be playing Nike co-founder Phil Knight in a “story around Nike’s longshot effort to sign rising superstar basketball player Michael Jordan to its shoe company in the mid-eighties, an endorsement that seemed impossible at the time but thanks to the maverick sneaker salesman, would become the most significant relationship between an athletic brand and an athlete.”
