Runner Runner One-Sheet

If you’re like most of the staff here at Joe’s Daily, you like to go to Vegas. Why? Why not. Gambling, women in bikinis, endless buffets and the idea that you could get rich are all the ingredients of the true American Dream. Runner, Runner follows a young Princeton grad Richie Furst (Justin Timberlake), as he tries to confront the online gambling tycoon Ivan Block (Ben Affleck) who he believes has cheated and deprived him of such dreams. Furst is quickly lured by the above mentioned trinkets when arriving in Costa Rica. This includes the buxom Gemma Arterton who you may remember from such films as Quantum of Solace and Hansel & Gretel. But of course all such things must come to an end. But not before some good fun. This 91 minute gambling excursion was written by Brian Koppelman, who has also supplied us with the great Rounders. It is due to be released Oct 4th.
