Renner Walks In Affleck’s “Town”

Jeremy Renner (“SWAT,” “The Hurt Locker”) is in negotiations to join Ben Affleck’s romantic crime thriller “The Town” for Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story follows a bank manager (Rebecca Hall), the career criminal (Affleck) who stole more than her heart and the dedicated FBI agent (Jon Hamm) trying to bust the crook and his gang.

Renner plays Affleck’s doomed best friend, a member of the gang. Filming kicks off in Boston this September.
