Affleck And Timberlake Starring In Online Gambling Movie
Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake have been around the world of gambling ever since they have become A-List celebrities. Now, the pair have been tapped to star in a motion picture centered on the world of online gambling.Runner, Runner will be the name of the new thriller, and the film will dive into the world of illegal Internet gambling. It is an issue that is hot in many countries right now, and in the US the online gambling movement is in full force.Brad Furman will direct the movie, with David Levien and Brian Koppelman writing the script. The scriptwriters are familiar with the underground gambling scene, having tackled the issue back in 1998 with the movie, Rounders. Leonardo DiCaprio will work as one of the producers for the movie. The producer list for the flick is long, with seven people on board.Affleck and Timberlake have been busy over the past year. Affleck has wrote, directed, and starred in the movie Agro, which is expected to be finished this year. Timberlake is coming off a year in which he starred in three separate major motion pictures.Over the past decade, online gambling has become one of the largest industries in the world. In many countries, the activity is still prohibited by the government, but that has been rapidly changing. Over the past year, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the US have made strides towards opening up their Internet gambling industries.In the US, the Department of Justice issued an opinion late last year overturning a long-standing belief that all online gambling was illegal. Instead, the DoJ asserted that only online sports betting is illegal. That ruling has opened the doors for states such as New Jersey and Nevada to craft online gambling regulation laws this year.Runner, Runner, will focus on the illegal online sites that operated and dominated the industry in the early part of the new millennium. Several international companies were accepting bets from gamblers in countries where online gambling had been prohibited, and the movie will dive into the inner-workings of these companies.
