Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have successfully teamed up in films like Kevin Smith’s Dogma and, of course, Good Will Hunting, which won Oscars for both.

But now, the duo are looking to take their next production south — all the way south.

Race to the South Pole tells the true tale of two early 1900s explorers, one English and one Norwegian, who were both looking to be the first person to ever reach the South Pole.

Affleck and Damon will produce the upcoming adventure film for Warner Bros., while Ben’s younger brother, Casey Affleck, will star as Englishman Robert Falcon Scott. No word on who will play Roald Amundsen, Scott’s Norwegian foil.
