Two famous actors are ending their search for investors, and the head of Studio 8, Jeff Rubinoff, is set to play a big role in the new company. While working at Warner Bros. Robinov has worked with both Affleck and Damon.

Filming for the as yet untitled movie about the history of the Nike brand began last Monday. Directed by Ben Affleck and starring Matt Damon. The project is being implemented for Amazon Studios, and Skydance Sports and Mandalay Pictures are participating. The new company, Affleck and Damon, will also participate in the production of this film, according to sources reported by the “Deadline” portal.

The script for the Nike movie was based on a script from last year’s infamous Blacklist. I’m talking about a screenplay titled “Air Jordan” by Alex Convery. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon – Oscar winners for the screenplay for “Rebel by Choice” – adapted it to their own needs.

In addition to directing, Affleck will play the co-founder of the Nike brand, Phil Knight in the emerging film. He authorized someone appointed by Sonny Vaccaro (Damon) to sign a contract with Michael Jordan himself. The film tells the true story of one of the most famous decades in the history of professional sports.
