If rumors are to be believed Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck will star in an upcoming poker movie titled "Runner, Runner".

Lots of poker movies have been made over the years. Some more successful than others. And now it seems a new one is on the way and judging by the leading cast it looks promising. 

Justin Timberlake and former WSOP contestant Ben Affleck look set to star in what is being labeled "an online gambling drama". 

"Runner, Runner" will portray the offshore online gaming community, and will be centered on an increasingly tense relationship between a business founder and his protege.

The film will be directed by Brad Furman, The Take and The Lincoln Lawyer, and it is all based on a script penned by Brian Koppelman and David Levien. 

If those two names sound familiar to you it's because these two guys were behind the cult classic, Rounders. If you haven't seen that one yet, here's a trailer ( it's friggin' awesome btw ):
