Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are teaming up again, this time for a crime thriller called “RIP”. The movie, directed by Joe Carnahan, marks the latest collaboration between the two actors and their production company, Artists Equity.

While details about the plot are scarce, the title suggests a darker tone, and Carnahan’s history with crime films like “Narc” and “Smokin’ Aces” hints at a gripping thriller.

The partnership between Affleck and Damon has been fruitful in recent years, with their company producing documentaries like “The Greatest Love Story Never Told” and historical dramas like “Small Things Like These”.

Their most recent joint effort, “Air”, was released last year, and they had considered working together on “Animals” before scheduling conflicts arose.

With “RIP”, Affleck and Damon are reuniting with Carnahan, who has a solid track record in the crime genre. The movie is expected to start production in the fall, and while it doesn’t have a distributor yet, its star power and directorial talent make it an attractive pick for streaming services like Netflix or Amazon MGM.

Aside from “RIP”, Affleck and Damon have several other projects in the works. Affleck is reprising his role as Christian Wolff in the sequel to “The Accountant”, while Damon is starring in and producing “The Instigators” for Apple TV+.

Their production company is also backing projects like an updated “Kiss of the Spider Woman” and sports drama “Unstoppable”. With their collaboration on “RIP”, Affleck and Damon are continuing their successful partnership, bringing their unique blend of talent and creativity to the big screen.
