Jon Hamm joins The Town

Mad Men's Jon Hamm and Vicky christina Barcelona's Rebecca Hal have signed on to Ben Affleck's next directorial effort, The Town.

Affleck is directing and starring as a bank robber who falls for an employee (Hall) of one of his targets.

But life becomes even more complicated when the FBI figures out that she's their best chance of catching the thief, and the agent assigned to the case (Hamm) becomes infatuated with her too.

Chuck Hogan wrote the original novel, them penned a draft of the script which Affleck has now polished.

It'll kick of shooting next month in Boston.
