Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake To Star In Poker Movie

This story was published more than 11 years ago.

Internet Poker plays a prominent role in a new film by "The Lincoln Lawyer" director Brad Furman that will star Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake.

Few details have been released about the movie, but it reportedly revolves around the world of high stakes online poker. The script was written by Brian Koppelman and David Levien, who both wrote the 1998 gambling movie "Rounders".

No time frame has been set for the film to begin shooting, and Casino Listings will keep this story updated as we learn more details.

Do you think this could end up being any good?

I am intrigued. I like both as actors and The Town and The Social Network were both good.

Rounders was a good movie so if this one has the same script writers it is a good sign.

This article says the movie will revolve around the world of "illegal online gambling." Maybe it will bring attention to this shady practice. lmbo!
