Deadline reports that two-time Academy Award winner Ben Affleck (Good Will Hunting, Argo) has officially signed on for the leading role in director Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming action-thriller movie titled Hypnotic. Production is expected to start in April with the producers changing pre-planned production dates in consideration of Affleck’s current busy schedule.

“Working with Ben on his award-winning projects, including Argo and The Town, I have seen how his versatility and creativity has made him one of the most talented filmmakers both in front of and behind the camera,” Jeff Robinov said in a statement. “It’s very meaningful to be collaborating with Ben again on this uniquely riveting suspense thriller, and I know he and Robert will make a terrific film together.”

The film is written and directed by Robert Rodriguez (Alita: Battle Angel). It is a co-production between Studio 8 and Solstice Studios with Rodriguez, Studio 8 CEO Jeff Robinov, Guy Danella and John Graham serving as producers. Solstice will be handling the film’s US theatrical distribution rights.
