Hamm, Hall Join Affleck’s “Town”

Jon Hamm and Rebecca Hall are joining the romantic crime thriller “The Town” for Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures reports the trades.

An adaptation of the Chuck Hogan novel “Prince of Thieves,” the story follows the relationship between a bank manager (Hall), a career criminal (Ben Affleck) who falls for her during a robbery, and a dedicated FBI agent (Hamm) trying to bust him.

The agent sees her as his golden ticket to catching the crim, Boston’s most infamous bank robber.

Affleck is directing himself with shooting to take place in Boston starting next month. Peter Craig and Hogan penned the script which Affleck re-wrote, while Graham King will produce.
