We have learned that Matthew McConaughey dropped 30 pounds for his next project The Dallas Buyer’s Club, about Ron Woodroof, a tough Texas electrician who in the late 1980s, became ‘the nerviest cowboy in the AIDS underground.’
Then, the long-in-the-works true-life drama, to be directed by Jean-Marc Vallée (Café de Flore) adds Gael Garcia Bernal as an effeminate member of the ‘club’ who is also suffering from AIDS, and who meets the thin lead, all without a female lead locked in.
Most recently Hilary Swank was attached, but she dropped out of the picture earlier this year, right as Bernal has joined the cast. Now comes word that Jennifer Garner is in talks to star as the female lead, Dr. Eve Saks.
Production begins November 11th in New Orleans with Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack providing the screenplay.
