Matthew McConaughey is set to star in the comic caper, The Beach Bum, which has been written and directed by Harmony Korine, according to reports.
The movie follows the misadventures of Moondog, a rebellious and lovable rogue. Korine adds that the film will be a laugh riot.
"The Beach Bum will be a wild, audacious ride. And I can't think of anyone better than Matthew McConaughey to play our hero Moondog, a rebellious charmer in this fast-paced, uplifting and irreverent comedy," said the director.
A release date for the film is yet to be announced.
