Hollywood veteran Tommy Lee Jones is all set to star in Joe Wright's 'Stoner' adaptation.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film, which is being produced by Blumhouse Productions and backed by the Cohen Media Group and Film4, is based on John Williams' 1965 novel, adapted by Andrew Bovell, and will see the Oscar-winning actor team with newly minted Academy Award winner Casey Affleck, whose casting was announced last month.

Jones' character isn't yet known. While, Affleck is set to play the title role of William Stoner, a dirt-poor farmer turned academic who emerges as an unlikely existential hero while making his way through the first half of the 20th century.

With Ethan Hawke as executive producer, Jason Blum, Charles S. Cohen of CMG and Daniel Battsek of Film4 will serve as producers on 'Stoner'. (ANI)
