Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake in "Runner, Runner" drama trailer (video)

PanARMENIAN.Net - Ben Affleck will follow up his Oscar-winning "Argo" work by stretching his villainous muscles as an offshore gambling kingpin in "Runner, Runner", TheWrap said.

The high-stakes drama marks a departure for Affleck, who usually gets to wear the white hat even when engaging in criminality in films like "The Town."

It pits him against Justin Timberlake, who at 32 looks a bit long-in-the-tooth to be playing a Princeton whiz kid who loses his tuition money playing online poker.

Timberlake finds himself seduced by Affleck's luxurious lifestyle and starts working for the big man himself, but being his protege comes with the risk of being fed to the crocodiles.

"The house always wins," Affleck reminds Timberlake at one point in the trailer.

"Runner, Runner" is directed by "The Lincoln Lawyer" director Brad Furman and co-stars Gemma Arterton ("Quantum of Solace") and Anthony Mackie ("The Hurt Locker"). It hits theaters on Sept. 27.
