The authors of 'Rounders' is about to make a new poker movie called 'Runner Runner', a dramatic thriller about the world of illegal online gambling. The production of the movie will start later this year and movie stars such as Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck will star in it! The movie will be released sometime during 2013 and most probably it will reach the cinemas.
There has been lots of rumors regarding a follow-up to 1998's classic "Rounders" in the past few years. In the end of 2011, the writers of Rounders, David Levien and Brian Koppelman, said that they had met up with both Matt Damon and Edward Norton and talked about it.
"I'm entertaining the idea of doing a 'Rounders' sequel because there's a side of the story that we haven't told. I want to do it because there's something that we didn't say."
"I feel Matt [Damon's] passion, I feel like he's one of those great citizens of our industry...and he's also one of our great actors. And I know Edward [Norton] wants to do it too...and I think the two of them know that they have this magic."
However, the most recent news are that Miramax, the production company of the movie, has postponed all production of this movie to at least 2014.
