In true form, Robert Rodriguez has multiple projects in the work. Off the heels of Alita: Battle Angel, he signed on to write and direct We Can Be Heroes for Netflix, a film that is in the vein of his popular Spy Kids franchise. But, as we know, the filmmaker tends to have two sides — a childlike an adult side, and it sounds like his next feature will be very much in the spirit of the latter.

Studio 8 and Solstice Studios have announced that Rodriguez’s next film is a mind-bending action-thriller called Hypnotic, and that Ben Affleck will be starring in the movie.

Below is the synopsis for Hypnotic:

“The film follows a detective (Affleck) who becomes entangled in a mystery involving his missing daughter and a secret government program–while investigating a string of impossible high-end heists.”

“Working with Ben on his award-winning projects, including Argo and The Town, I have seen how his versatility and creativity has made him one of the most talented filmmakers both in front of and behind the camera,” said Studio 8 CEO Jeff Robinov. “It’s very meaningful to be collaborating with Ben again on this uniquely riveting suspense thriller, and I know he and Robert will make a terrific film together.”
