After starring in Gone Girl, Ben Affleck is keen to sink his teeth into another thriller.

The actor is developing a futuristic spy thriller with Matt Damon via their production company Pearl Street Films for US cable channel Syfy.

The drama, Incorporated, is set in a world where corporations have seemingly unlimited power, and will be the story of one man’s efforts to beat the system.

Damon and Affleck set up their film production company in October 2012, and made US drama movie Promised Land in the same year.

The company currently has four more on-going projects in the pipeline, including new film Live by the Night set in the Prohibition Era that will be directed by Ben Affleck.

The actors first starred together in their film Good Will Hunting in 1997, alongside the late comedian Robin Williams.

The two have been friends since childhood, and rose to fame after winning the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for the Nineties film. They previously appeared in TV adverts as children for TK Maxx.

Incorporated will be written by filmmaker brothers David and Alex Pastor, with The Good Wife’s Ted Humphrey serving as executive producer.
