AFFLECK AND JT PLAY THE STAKES HIGH IN RUNNER, RUNNER

Runner, Runner – Princeton grad student Richie, believing he’s been swindled, travels to Costa Rica to confront online gambling tycoon Ivan Block. Richie is seduced by Block’s promise of immense wealth, until he learns the disturbing truth about his benefactor. When the FBI tries to coerce Richie to help bring down Block, Richie faces his biggest gamble ever: attempting to outmaneuver the two forces closing in on him.

I like it – it looks like 21 meets a Beautiful Mind meets Romancing the Stone without comedy. I am only really saying that because JT looks smart in a University Campus, until he opens his mouth – I mean what is with the Mickey Mouse accent he has 🙂 I also say Romancing the Stone because of the destination and use of Crocodiles – I hope Affleck gets his hand bitten off at the end 🙂 Just kidding, not really.

The film is being directed by Lincoln Lawyer helmsman Brad Furman and I have a lot of faith in the success of the film as Leonardo DiCaprio is the producer and he rarely backs a bad horse.

The film is set for some high paced action and some expensive sets – oh I want that boat – it looks great. I love JT on film but hate his voice and Affleck looks like he is having a lot of fun with this role.

Runner, Runner will be releasing on September 26th in Australia and the 27th in the U.S..
