Matthew McConaughey Stars In First WHITE BOY RICK Trailer

First look at the true life crime drama.


It seems every year Matthew McConaughey piles on weight or grows some dodgy facial hair in a bid for Oscar glory, and 2018 is no exception, with the Texan thesp sporting a ridiculous 'tache in director Yann Demange's true crime drama White Boy Rick.

The film tells the story of Richard Wershe Jr. (newcomer Richie Merritt), a Detroit teen who began working as an undercover informant during the 1980s following a failed career as a drug dealer.

Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bruce Dern, Piper Laurie and Jonathan Majors also star.

White Boy Rick is in UK/ROI cinemas December 7th. Take a look at the first trailer below and let us know what you think.

The official synopsis reads:

Set in 1980s Detroit at the height of the crack epidemic and the War on Drugs, WHITE BOY RICK is based on the moving true story of a blue-collar father and his teenage son, Rick Wershe Jr., who became an undercover police informant and later a drug dealer, before he was abandoned by his handlers and sentenced to life in prison.
