All siblings squabble from time to time, but sending your younger brother on a mission to the frozen ends of the Earth? That seems a little bit more serious than a Chinese burn. Still, that’s what Ben Affleck is planning for Casey in the movie Race To The South Pole.Admittedly, it’s not a case of family fighting: it’s a new project the elder Affleck is producing along with Bff Matt Damon and their Pearl Street production company.The duo’s team, along with Warners, have picked up the drama pitch from Peter Glanz.
