From his ripped torso in Magic Mike to his skeletal frame in Dallas Buyers Club, Matthew McConaughey has undergone yet another body transformation for his next movie Gold. That, or his character from The Wolf of Wall Street ate too much cocaine.
The movie is directed by Stephen Gaghan (Syriana) and is written by Patrick Massett & John Zinman (The Blacklist). It also stars Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World), Corey Stoll (Ant-Man) and Toby Kebbell (Fantastic Four). The film will be released in 2016.

Is that you, Matthew McConaughey?! The Oscar-winning actor looked a far cry from his normal self while filming his new movie "Gold" with Bryce Dallas Howard in New York City on Sunday. Sporting balding blonde tresses, a few extra pounds and a cheap gray suit, Matt looked nearly unrecognizable as he was pictured on the set with Bryce. The "Jurassic World" star had an interesting getup, too. Dallas looked like a different person in her metallic gold snakeskin-printed dress. The 34-year-old likewise traded in her signature red locks for curly strawberry-blonde tresses. The dramatic movie -- directed by "Traffic's" Stephen Gaghan -- follows the story of an unlikely pair who travel to the Indonesian jungle in search of gold. This isn't the first time Matt has totally transformed his look for a role, though. McConaughey dropped a whopping 47 lbs to play Ron Woodroff in "Dallas Buyers Club" back in »

Matthew McConaughey is really committing to his new movie. Though it's not the first time he has completely transformed for a role (see: Dallas Buyers Club), he's never quite looked like this. The Oscar winner put on some weight, lost some hair, and got a new set of teeth (through the wonders of the hair and makeup department) to star in Gold, in which he plays a man who goes to the Indonesian jungle in search of, you guessed it, gold. The story is loosely based on the Bre-x mining scandal of 1993. Bryce Dallas Howard and Édgar Ramírez are also on the set, though they don't look nearly as crazy as McConaughey. »

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now have our first look at Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez in the upcoming "Gold" film, which co-stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell and Bruce Greenwood. Check out the photo below. Plot: McConaughey stars as a struggling businessman named Kenny Wells who teams up with an equally hapless geologist (Ramirez) to find fortune by searching for gold in the Indonesian jungle. The new movie is directed by Stephen Gaghan (Syriana) and is currently filming. Photo: (click to enlarge) »
The first official image has been released from Gold, the upcoming movie from Traffic scribe Stephen Gaghan. As you can see, it features Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez in the sweaty setting of the Bre-x Mineral Corporation mining scandal. The movie revolves around a struggling businessman who teams up with a hapless geologist to find gold in the Indonesian jungle, and while this still doesn’t reveal much, it nicely sets the tone.
Gold is one of those movies which has been stuck in development hell for a while now, with director Michael Mann and writer Paul Haggis coming close to teaming up with Christian Bale for a version back in 2011. This current iteration was penned by Patrick Massett and John Zinman and is currently set to be released next Fall.

Time for a first look - just one photo via EW.com from the new film titled simply Gold, being directed by Stephen Gaghan. The film stars Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez as an "unlikely pair" who team up when they find one of the largest gold mines in the world in the Indonesian jungle. The full cast includes Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Bryce Dallas Howard, but none of them are seen in this shot. The photo is just Ramirez and McConaughey, face to face, in the jungle. We'll have to wait until a trailer debuts to get a better sense of where this is going, and if it turns out these guys are trying to save the jungle or profit from it. In the meantime, take a look below and stay tuned for more on this film from Black Bear Pictures/Hwy61. The description from EW.com says Gold »

The Weinstein Company has released a first look image from Gold, director Stephen Gaghan’s mining drama Gold, which features Matthew McConaughey (Interstellar) and Edgar Ramirez (Deliver Us from Evil)…
“Gold is inspired by the thrilling true story of Walsh (McConaughey), a modern day prospector, hustler and dreamer, desperate for a lucky break. Left with few options, Walsh teams up with an equally luckless geologist to execute a grandiose, last ditch effort: find gold deep in the unchartered jungle of Indonesia. Together, they embark on an incredible rollercoaster ride, journeying from Walsh’s sleepy mining town to the mysterious rivers banks of Borneo to the high stakes boardrooms of Wall Street, and culminating in one of the most unexpected and scandalous frauds of our time.”

Two films we’re looking forward to recently kicked off production and seemingly in an effort to combat low-quality unofficial set photos, they’ve already released their first images. First up, Syriana helmer Stephen Gaghan is finally back in the director’s chair with Gold. Led by Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez, seen above (via EW), the story follows a geologist and prospector who venture into the Indonesian jungle where they start mining and a scandal erupts. Also starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Corey Stoll, Bruce Greenwood, and Toby Kebbell, The Weinstein Company will likely distribute it next fall.
Next up, Mel Gibson is also back in the director’s chair for the first time since 2006’s Apocalypto. Hacksaw Ridge is a World War II drama which features Andrew Garfield as Desmond T. Doss, “a medic and the first conscientious objector to win the Congressional Medal of Honor after saving dozens »

Plus, it looks like we're getting a Jurassic World 3 as well...
This piece talks about a character who survived Jurassic World. If you've not seen the film, you may not want to read on.
You'd have to say that Universal Pictures won its gamble to resurrect the Jurassic Park series of movies. Whilst critical opinion was divided on Jurassic World, the movie's box office was sensational. Jurassic World stands as the third biggest film of all time, with a staggering $1.66bn in the bank. A sequel has already been scheduled for June 2018.
Director Colin Trevorrow won't be back to make this one, not least because he's going to be wrangling Star Wars: Episode IX. But he is penning a draft of it, along with his usual writing partner Derek Connolly. And he's given a broad hint as to the direction of Jurassic World 2.
"Honestly, the trilogy is articulated in Jurassic Park, »
Universal's Jurassic World is without a question, the biggest film of the year. As of today, the Colin Trevorrow-directed blockbuster has grossed over $1.659 billion at the worldwide box office, is currently the third highest grossing film of all-time, and has smashed over twenty-two box office records in its historic run. In a recent appearance on the Jurassic Cast Podcast, Trevorrow opened up about the future of the franchise, which he confirms will hopefully be at least a trilogy of films. He reveals how a quote from Steven Spielberg's original Jurassic Park initially helped him come up with the idea for Jurassic World, how the 2018 sequel won't be just another 'dinosaurs chasing people on an island' movie, and also touches on how he hopes to further develop the characters of Owen and Claire, who were played by stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Check out his comments below: »
If you were a human with eyes and $20 worth of disposable income this summer, chances are you saw “Jurassic World.” The timey-wimey sequel to the “Jurassic Park” franchise became a global box office phenomenon, raking in more money than any film in history and all but ensuring plenty of dinosaur sequels in our immediate future. Which is why it should come as no surprise that director Colin Trevorrow was asked about “Jurassic World 2” during a recent podcast. Without giving away any details, Trevorrow revealed the thesis for the second film in what is now set to be a trilogy. And it’s all based on a “Jurassic Park” quote. I did look at it as a trilogy from the very beginning and we designed the whole thing that way. Honestly? The trilogy is articulated in “Jurassic Park” [quotes]. “Jurassic World” is all based on Ian Malcolm’s quote, “You stood on »

Despite some of the criticism leading up to Jurassic World, it made all of the money and then some, so the announcement of a sequel was no great surprise. Unlike the sequel to Jurassic Park, Jurassic World looks to bring back its leading man and lady, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. You may be wondering how on dinosaur-filled Earth those two would be dragged back into the fold, but that's... Read More »

With a record-breaking haul of $1.6 billion at the worldwide box office, the notion of a sequel to Colin Trevorrow’s monster mash went from wishful thinking to nigh on a certainty almost overnight, and we’ve now arrived at Jurassic World 2. Though the director himself is yet to commit to the follow-up beyond script duties – you can thank Star Wars: Episode XI for that – Trevorrow is still actively involved in the creative process, and the early idea that he and co-writer Derek Connolly have hatched is something that will take things “to the next level.”
Pushing for a bigger and bolder experience is hardly anything new when it comes to sequel territory, though as the filmmaker recounts in an interview with Jurassic Cast, this year’s box office juggernaut has laid the foundations to create a rich world brimming with stories. In fact, at one point Trevorrow refers to »

While we still have three months left in 2015, it will be very hard for another movie to top the massive box office success of Jurassic World. The blockbuster took in $649.8 million domestically and $1.6 billion worldwide, and it didn't take long for Universal Pictures to announce a sequel, Jurassic World 2. Colin Trevorrow will come back for this highly-anticipated sequel, and during an interview with the Jurassic Cast Podcast, the filmmaker revealed that there are two quotes from the original Jurassic Park that essentially inspired both Jurassic World and Jurassic World 2.
"Honestly, the trilogy is articulated in Jurassic Park, it's all in there. Jurassic World is all based on Ian Malcolm's quote, 'You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could, and before you even knew what you had, you patented it, and packaged it, and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now you wanna sell it. »
In a new interview with Jurassic Cast though, the first film's director Colin Trevorrow confirmed that 'World' is in fact the first of a new trilogy and that specific quotes from Steven Spielberg's first "Jurassic Park" film will affect their approach to each story:
"Honestly, the trilogy is articulated in Jurassic Park, it's all in there... Jurassic World is all based on Ian Malcolm's quote, 'You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could, and before you even knew what you had, you patented it, and packaged it, and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now you wanna sell it.' That to me is Jurassic World, that's why I had all the product placement, that's what it was. »
