Kevin Costner and Tommy Lee Jones will join Ben Affleck in The Company Men, a topical drama that is being independently financed. The film examines the impact of corporate downsizing on those who are laid off and those who remain working in the same company. Production is set to begin next month in Boston, with John Wells directing.
Affleck will play a Porsche-driving, six-figure salary man who is abruptly laid off from his job. Costner will play his brother-in-law, a blue-collar drywall installer who gives Affleck a construction job. Jones will play a partner at Affleck's former firm who has issues with how his greedy partners handle their business.
Costner is also working on The One, a film he will direct based on a script he co-wrote with his Dances With Wolves partner Michael Blake. Costner will also star in the film, playing a free-spirit who inherits $3 billion and embarks on high-seas adventures, only to tangle with pirates in the Cayman Islands.
