Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are in talks to become Warner Bros producers.
The friends - who won an Oscar for original screenplay for Good Will Hunting in 1997 - are negotiating a deal with the US film studio, said The Hollywood Reporter.
They've worked a lot with Warner Bros over the last decade - Oscar-nominated Matt has enjoyed starring roles in Invictus, The Informant!, The Departed and the Ocean's trilogy, while Ben co-wrote, directed and stars in his latest film, The Town.
The duo were the brains behind production company LivePlanet, which was responsible for Ben's writing-directing debut, Gone Baby Gone, and other films like Stolen Summer, The Battle Of Shaker Heights and Feast.
Next up for Matt are lead roles in action drama Green Zone, sci-fi romance The Adjustment Bureau and thriller Hereafter. Ben, who co-stars in The Company Men, is preparing to direct The Arizona Project.
