Mike Judges 'Extract' Finds It's Lawyer

Variety have the info on Mike Judge's latest film offering entitled Extract, which has just added Ben Affleck to the cast, hopefully for Judge and the film, he will have better luck at Miramax than he did at previous studios with the brilliant Office Space and Idiocracy.
Ben Affleck is ready to suit up for Miramax's Mike Judge comedy "Extract."

The actor is in negotiations to play an ambulance-chasing lawyer in the pic, 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, which begins lensing Monday in Los Angeles.

Judge penned the screenplay and is producing with John Altschuler and Mike Rotenberg via the Ternion Prods.
