Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Set to Reunite for Thrilling New Project

Get ready for an electrifying addition to the crime thriller genre as Matt Damon and Ben Affleck team up once more for 'RIP', a gripping new project written and directed by Joe Carnahan.

AceShowbiz - Hollywood heavyweights Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are set to headline the crime thriller "RIP", directed and written by Joe Carnahan. This much-anticipated collaboration will be produced under Damon and Affleck's production company, Artists Equity, with filming slated to begin this fall. The film has already garnered significant interest from both theatrical and streaming buyers, despite plot details being kept tightly under wraps.

Since the launch of Artists Equity in November 2022, the powerhouse duo has made significant strides. Their first film under the banner, "Air", released in spring 2023, earned glowing reviews and saw notable box office success. The studio has also been busy with the documentary "The Greatest Love Story Never Told:" for Amazon MGM Studios, and "Small Things Like These", which opened at this year's Berlin Film Festival and won the Silver Bear for supporting actress Emily Watson.

Damon and Affleck's on-screen chemistry isn't new to fans. From their Oscar-winning debut in "Good Will Hunting" to numerous Kevin Smith films like "Chasing Amy", "Dogma", and "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back", the pair have captivated audiences for decades.

Additionally, they co-wrote the script for Ridley Scott's "The Last Duel" alongside Nicole Holofcener, a project that reignited their passion for collaborative work. Damon recalled, "My wife said to me one day: 'I haven't heard you laugh like that in 15 years.' We came out of that experience going: Why aren't we doing this more often? And getting into your 50s you just go: If we don't make it a priority, it's just not going to happen."

RIP comes on the heels of another intended project, "Animals", which was put on hold due to scheduling conflicts with Affleck's sequel to "The Accountant". However, with Joe Carnahan, known for his work on films like "Narc" and "Smokin' Aces", at the helm, expectations are sky-high.

As Hollywood buzzes with speculation, one thing is certain - "RIP" promises to be a high-octane experience, leveraging the undeniable talents of its stellar team. With Damon and Affleck's proven track record and Carnahan's directorial prowess, this project is poised to be a summer blockbuster that young audiences won't want to miss.
