Ben Affleck has found company on the set of The Town thanks to the addition of both Jon Hamm and Rebecca Hall.
Jon Hamm and Rebecca Hall for The Town
Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have teamed up to adapt The Town, a novel from author Chuck Hogan.
Affleck is both directing and playing a bank robber who becomes smitten with the teller of a bank he held up. She makes him want to go straight, but she is also the FBI's golden ticket to catching Boston's most wanted bank robber.
As you might have guessed, Rebecca Hall has been cast for the role of teller. Jon Hamm will play the FBI agent who also becomes infatuated with the bank employee. Affleck rewrote the script originally by Peter Craig and Hogan.
The film is set to enter production next month in Boston. If my count serves me right, this will be Affleck's second film behind the camera.
