Do you like seeing people that are hotter than you with their shirts off? Well, bully for you — because Matthew McConaughey is still getting work. He and Eva Mendes are in talks to star in a drama called Southbound, says Variety. Southbound, scripted by Peter Craig, will be directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz (Secuestro Express).
If this gets greenlighted, McConaughey will play an extremely physically fit border patrol officer, and my bets are that he’ll probably run on the beach and/or wail on his pecs on camera. Eva Mendes will also really stretch those boundaries of hers and play some sort of drug peddling border patrol officer temptress. Drama will ensue, and the United States will continue to fight a futile drug war.
Or, Southbound is a plot-inflated porno. Either way, sounds like it’s going to be mediocre. We’ll see. Production begins in September.
