Directed by Brad Furman, the flick centers around college student Justin Timberlake who gambles his tuition away and heads to Puerto Rico in an effort earn it all back. Obviously, things go south and he’s soon caught up in both kingpin Ben Affleck‘s business as well as the FBI’s investigation to bring down their underground gambling ring.
With these two Hollywood heavyweights threatening to push people into crocodile-infested waters and screaming things like, “This is your job! If you want a clear conscious, go start a charity,” you can bet the stakes are very high in this movie. (No pun intended.)
Runner, Runner opens Sept. 27.
