Indiewire has just revealed a surprising addition to Matthew McConaughey’s film project “Dallas Buyer’s Club” — Deerhunter & Atlas Sound‘s Bradford Cox.
According to the site, Cox will be playing Jared Leto‘s cross-dressing lover in the film, which also stars Jennifer Garner and Steve Zahn.
McConaughey will obviously play the lead. He has been getting into character, shocking some, for the film, losing 40 pounds. “Dallas Buyer’s Club” focuses on the life of Ron Woodruff, a partier who is diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in 1986 and given 6 months to live. He starts using non-FDA-approved drugs and ends up living longer than expected. The story is true.
The movie is shooting now and will be out sometime next year.
