On the work front, Reese’s plate is getting full. We can’t believe that they haven’t teamed up before, but it looks like Reese and Matthew McConaughy are finally going to share some screen time together.
Witherspoon, McConaughey and newcomer Tye Sheridan are in talks to star in Mud, an upcoming film from Everest Entertainment. The project is written and directed by Jeff Nichols, who also wrote and directed this year’s Cannes darling Take Shelter.
McConaughey would play the title role, a fugitive named Mud who befriends a 14-year-old boy named Ellis (Sheridan). The two strike up an unlikely friendship and embark on a dangerous journey in hopes of reuniting Mud with Juniper (Witherspoon), the love of his life.
