White Boy Rick Trailer Starring Matthew McConaughey

whiteboyrick

Although talk of the so-called McConaissance has faded a little bit after Matthew McConaughey’s last few films, it may return later this year when both Harmony Korine’s The Beach Bum and the upcoming crime drama White Boy Rick arrive. The latter is directed by Yann Demange (’71) and is based on the unbelievable true story of Richard Wershe Jr., a Detroit hustler who became the youngest FBI informant ever at the age of 14. McConaughey plays his father, Richard Wershe Sr., while newcomer Richie Merritt takes on the lead role. With Darren Aronofsky listed as a producer and a supporting cast that includes Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bruce Dern, Eddie Marsan, Rory Cochrane and Piper Laurie, this one is probably worth keeping an eye on. White Boy Rick hits theatres on Sept. 14th; check out the first trailer after the jump and see what you think.
