M8 Entertainment, Inc., a leading film entertainment company, announced that principal photography has recently begun on its new feature film project, Man About Town, a dramatic comedy set in the fast-paced, high stakes world of Hollywood power players. Written and directed by Mike Binder, who most recently directed M8's The Upside of Anger (which will be released in the US through New Line Cinema), Man About Town stars Academy Award winner Ben Affleck (Pearl Harbor, Good Will Hunting) leading actress/model Rebecca Romijn (X Men, X2), and veteran comedic actor John Cleese (Harry Potter franchise, A Fish Called Wanda). Rounding out the film's talented cast are Gina Gershon (The Insider, Face/Off), Bai Ling (Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow), Amber Valetta (What Lies Beneath), Kal Penn (Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle), Howard Hesseman (About Schmidt), Adam Goldberg (A Beautiful Mind), Jerry O'Connell (Kangaroo Jack), and Damien Wayans (Malibu's Most Wanted).
"We are very excited to begin filming on this project, and we are looking forward to working with Mike Binder again and continuing to develop what has been a very successful partnership thus far," stated Sammy Lee, Vice Chairman of the Board for M8 Entertainment and a producer on the film. "It's a testament to this script and to Mike's skill as a comedic director that we've been able to attract such a talented and exciting cast for the project," further added Lee.
Man About Town tells the story of top Hollywood talent agent Jack Giamoro (Ben Affleck), who seems to have it all - until his perfect world starts to unravel when he learns that his wife Nina (Rebecca Romijn) is cheating on him, and that ambitious journalist Barbi Ling (Bai Ling) is out to destroy him. The film is being produced by Jack Binder, Michael Rotenberg, and M8's Sammy Lee. Principal photography will take place in Vancouver, Canada, and Los Angeles, CA.
