BEN Affleck is to star in new action thriller Hypnotic from Robert Rodriguez.

The Oscar winner will play a detective investigating a series of impossible high-end heists, which sees him entangled in a mystery involving his missing daughter and a secret government programme.

Production on the thriller is set to start in April next year (2020).

Jeff Robinov, of Studio 8, commented: “Working with Ben on his award-winning projects, including Argo and The Town, I have seen how his versatility and creativity has made him one of the most talented filmmakers both in front of and behind the camera.

“It’s very meaningful to be collaborating with Ben again on this uniquely riveting suspense thriller, and I know he and Robert will make a terrific film together.”

Rodriguez’s body of work includes Desperado, Sin City and – most recently – the James Cameron produced Alita: Battle Angel.

Affleck has recently been seen in Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and Netflix thriller Triple Frontier. He is currently preparing to reunite with Matt Damon for The Last Duel for director Ridley Scott.
