Casey Affleck is moving forward with a partnership with producer John Powers Middleton to launch his own production company. The company will focus on creating films and TV series.
Middleton is known for his work on Oldboy, The Voices and a co-producer on The Lego Movie.
The venture is currently unnamed and no official paperwork has been signed, it is likely that a
production chief for the company will be announced later this month, Variety reported.
With the focus on creating films and TV shows, this will provide Affleck with a chance to focus on producing, writing and directing.
WTVA added that Affleck has been keeping busy while working on his new company. He was spotted at a charity baseball outing on Sunday along with Jon Hamm.
Affleck is known for his Oscar nominated role in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and can be seen in the upcoming Interstellar by Christopher Nolan and John Hillcoat’s Triple Nine.
