The couple, who were previously engaged for two years before splitting in 2004, have been on a relationship tour since April. The duo went viral, seen together publicly in Venice, Italy, and even plan to spend the holidays together. Now, the rekindled flame is leaving Hollywood Hills for fresh Texas airtemporarily that is. 

An insider at Us Weekly shared that the duo has moved to Austin for Affleck's upcoming film, Hypnotic. The project is directed by Robert Rodriguez, known for his work in the Star Wars series, The Mandalorian and Alita: Battle Angel. The film will be shot at Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios.

Postponed due to COVID-19, Hypnotic is scheduled to kick off filming in Austin this month. In an interview with Collider, Rodriguez says the film is like "a Hitchcock thriller on steroids." The forthcoming action-thriller follows a detective who investigates a mystery involving his missing daughter and a top-secret government program, per IMDB. Latina actress Alice Braga will co-star.  

The new Lone Star lovers plan to live together in Texas, while on the hunt for a new Los Angeles property to move into when they return. TMZ reports that Affleck is renting a luxury condo for the duration of the movie's filming. Lopez won't reside in the Texas capital full time, but will likely make frequent trips to visit her A-List beau. 

 Will Austin get any Bennifer sightings? Only time will tell.
