Gemma Arterton Joins 'RUNNER RUNNER' Starring Ben Affleck And Justin Timberlake

ShowBlitz reports that British actress Gemma Arterton (Disappearance of Alice Creed, RockNRolla) joins gambling thriller Runner Runner which stars Justin Timberlake (Social Network), Ben Affleck (The Town, Argo) and Anthony Mackie (Hurt Locker). The film is from the writers of the amazing gambling 90's flick Rounders which starred Matt Damon and Edward Norton. Timberlake plays a Princeton student cheated out of his tuition money playing online poker who ends up the right-hand man of the site's corrupt boss (Affleck). Arterton plays Timberlake's love interest. Arterton had been recently linked to Iron Man 3 as a possible addition to the cast until Rebecca Hall was locked in.
