by Joey Paur

Venkman here with some casting news regarding Mike Judges new film 'Extract'. Ben Affleck is being cast in the film as the main character. Trades report that the:

actor is in negotiations to play an ambulance-chasing lawyer in the pic, which centers on a flower extract factory owner (Jason Bateman) who's dealing with workplace problems and a streak of bad luck, including his wife's affair with a gigolo.

Clifton Collins Jr. is also joining the cast as a factory worker who loses a body part in a freak accident and is now due for a huge settlement. Mila Kunis and Kristen Wiig have already boarded the project, which begins lensing Monday in Los Angeles.

Judge penned the screenplay and is producing with John Altschuler and Mike Rotenberg via the trio's Ternion Prods. shingle.

Sounds like it could be a funny flick. I think mike judge has a great and original outlook on life it reflects in everything he has done so far. As for Ben Affleck i thought he was great as a director for 'Gone Baby Gone' and i was hoping he would stay behind the camera and direct a few more good films. The last film he rally acted in was 'Hollywoodland' in 2006. I thought he was great in that as well. Either way I think this new movie is going to be pretty funny. Jason Bateman is definitely a plus!
