Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Producing Casey Affleck’s Race to the South Pole

Actors Ben Affleck (L) and Matt Damon arrive at the Ante Up for Africa celebrity poker tournament at the Rio Hotel & Casino July 2, 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Proceeds from the event will benefit survivors of the humanitarian crisis in Darfur, Sudan.

The Good Will Hunting bros will produce, through their Pearl Street banner, a drama starring Ben's actual bro Casey. Race to the South Pole is a true tale of dueling explorers in the early twentieth century. Damon and Affleck have produced next to no high-profile projects in their time as busy showbiz fellows. At least Ben must have some kind of filmic insight — he's directed The Town and the upcoming Argo, and has locked down the adaptation of Stephen King's The Stand.
