Matthew McConaughey’s coming off a great 2012 in which, among other things, he made women happy by stripping in a feature film (along with Channing Tatum and Matt Bomer). Next up is the premiere of Mud at the Sundance Film Festival on January 19th. Directed by Jeff Nichols and co-starring Tye Sheridan, Jacob Lofland, Sam Shepard, Michael Shannon and Reese Witherspoon, Mud‘s aiming for an April 26, 2013 theatrical release.
Mud is an adventure about two boys, Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and his friend Neckbone (Jacob Lofland), who find a man named Mud (Matthew McConnaughey) hiding out on an island in the Mississippi. Mud describes fantastic scenarios—he killed a man in Texas and vengeful bounty hunters are coming to get him. He says he is planning to meet and escape with the love of his life, Juniper (Reese Witherspoon), who is waiting for him in town. Skeptical but intrigued, Ellis and Neckbone agree to help him. It isn’t long until Mud’s visions come true and their small town is besieged by a beautiful girl with a line of bounty hunters in tow.
