Ben Affleck Directs Adaptation of The Town by Chuck Hogan

The new trailer from the Ben Affleck-directed adaptation of The Town (a crime novel by Chuck Hogan) is embedded above.

What do you think? Affleck also stars in the film, but the cast also features Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm as a hardboiled FBI agent–an intriguing casting call. Release is scheduled for September 2010.

Here is Gawker’s take: “The rest of the cast is terrific. The wonderful Rebecca Hall finally gets the big central role she deserves. Jeremy Renner is always eminently watchable. Plus Chris Cooper, Jon Hamm, and… Blake Lively? Huh? Yeah, Blake Lively dressing it down as a Charlestown house cat with hoop earrings and a lazy accent.”
