Ben Affleck's next directorial venture, The Town, just got its female lead and a dashing FBI agent in one fell swoop. Recently seen as Vicky to Scarlett Johansson's Cristina in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Rebecca Hall has been cast as a bank teller at the center of this story about bank robbery and romance. Here's more on the film, which Affleck also helped adapt from a Chuck Hogan book:
Affleck is directing, and playing a bank robber who becomes smitten with the teller of a bank he held up. She makes him want to go straight, but she is also the FBI's golden ticket to catching Boston's most wanted bank robber.
Hamm plays the FBI agent who also becomes infatuated with the bank employee, played by Hall.
Like another Affleck-directed movie, Gone Baby Gone, this one will be filmed in Boston. All I know is I certainly wouldn't mind being in the middle of a love triangle with Jon Hamm and Ben Affleck.
