Ben Affleck has joined Miramax's Mike Judge comedy Extract.
According to Variety, the actor is in negotiations to play an ambulance-chasing lawyer in the film, 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.
The film begins lensing Monday in Los Angeles.
