Ben Affleck is the latest big name to join the massive ensemble cast of He’s Just Not That Into You as he joins Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly, Kevin Connolly, Justin Long, Bradley Cooper, Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Aniston and Scarlett Johansson in the romantic comedy for New Line Cinema and director Ken Kwapis.
Based on the book of the same name, penned by “Sex and the City” consultant and writer duo Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo the film is set in Baltimore and involves several interconnecting story arcs dealing with the challenges of reading or misreading human behavior. The book focuses on how men and women often misconstrue the intentions of the opposite sex.
There was no word on which character exactly Ben would be playing.
Shooting starts Sept. 10 in Los Angeles.
If you want more Affleck you can catch Gone, Baby, Gone in theaters this fall. Ben directed the flick which stars his brother Casey, and it actually looks pretty damn good based on the trailer.
