People Magazine’s favorite movie star Matthew McConaughey will get to show off a dark side as well as his abs (probably; it is Matthew McConaughey, after all) in new movie Killer Joe, a grim comedy in which he plays a corrupt cop-turned-hitman.
To make matters worse – or, better, depending on how you look at it – McConaughey’s character, “Killer” Joe Cooper, will be hired by a brother and sister looking to off their mother for the insurance money in the newly announced collaboration between Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning writer Tracy Letts and director William Friedkin. The movie, which will also star Emile Hirsch as the plotting son in question, will start shooting in November, according to the Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision blog.
