Since Matthew McConaughey loves the romantic comedy and comedy, uhh, comedy genre it seems like a no-brainer that it would have to be him to set up a two-film laffer deal over at New Line.
Matthew McConaughey Does Two for New Line
According to Variety, New Line Cinema is in talks with Matthew McConaughey to star in two films. First we have Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, a romantic comedy that has McConaughey play a bachelor who, after he arrives to his younger brother's wedding, gets visited by the ghosts of his past girlfriends.
The next film will strictly be a laffer titled The Grackle. In the film McConaughey will play a barroom fighter in New Orleans who hires himself out for $250 to settle disputes for people who can't afford a lawyer. Harsh language and quick fists are his weapons of choice.
The script was written by Mike Arnold and Chris Poole.
The comedy, which is aiming squarely for the R rating New Line got for Wedding Crashers, will go into production next year, after McConaughey completes Ghosts.
Though I still am unsure about the plots for both these films, at least they should keep McConaughey away from a How to Lose a Guy sequel; a win-win for all.
