According to Variety, Kevin Costner and Tommy Lee Jones will both be starring in The Company Men.

The film is an independently financed drama about the effect that corporate downsizing has on everyone involved. The actors will be joining Ben Affleck who was cast last fall.

The screenplay was written by John Wells. He will also direct.

In the film Affleck is a corporate high roller who gets laid off. Costner plays Affleck's brother-in-law, a man with a different take on life, who gives him a job.

Jones plays an older employee who must come to terms with the shady business practices of the people he works with.

Filming is set to start in April in Boston.
