One of our favorite filmmaking teams has a new project in the works, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck will reportedly produce a new movie called "Race to the South Pole," which has Affleck's brother Casey attached to star.
The film centers on the true life efforts of Robert Falcon Scott and Roald Amundsen to reach the South Pole in the early 1900s. With Scott hailing from England and Amundsen from Norway, the two explorers were, as the title suggests, in a race to see who would reach the mysterious terrain first.
According to THR, Casey's attached to portray Scott, and Peter Glanz is on board to write the script.
In addition to "Race to the South Pole," moviemaking pair Damon and Affleck also have a film about Boston gangster Whitey Bulger in the works, which would star Damon and be directed by Affleck.
