The AMC series’ Jon Hamm has signed on to co-star opposite Affleck in the thriller “The Town,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Affleck also worked on the movie’s script and will direct.
“The Town” is based on Chuck Hogan’s 2007 novel “Prince of Thieves,” which follows career criminal Doug MacRay, who falls for robbery victim Claire Keesey. Problem is, Claire is also falling for FBI agent Adam Frawley. And, of course, none of the three know about their bank-robbery connection.
Affleck will play MacRay, with Hamm taking the Frawley role.
Shooting begins this September in Boston.
