Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Team Up for Nike Movie ‘Air’
It looks like the Boston boys are back at it with a movie set to be released on Amazon Prime this spring.
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon star in Air, a movie about the rise of Michael Jordan and Nike's phenomenally successful Air Jordan brand. It premieres on April 5.
How do Matt and Ben fit into this movie? Matt plays Nike executive Sonny Vaccaro and Ben plays Nike co-founder Phil Knight.
As if having those two on the bill wasn't enough, other notable actors involved are Chris Tucker, Jason Bateman and Viola Davis.
In addition, Ben is directing. It's his first time directing his lifelong friend.
While I'm no sports fanatic, I will say these two hotties working together again has me very interested. Let's face it: Jordan and Nike changed the game forever. It'll be interesting to see how it all came to be and who was responsible for the partnership that changed the sportswear landscape.
Even I have my own pair of Jordans. Granted, they are worn for style and definitely not to help my free throw.
If you don't have Amazon Prime, you may want to get it just to see this movie and support the dynamic duo from Massachusetts. Now pass the popcorn and wine.
