TWC-Dimension has just picked up Gold directed by Stephen Gaghan and starring Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez. The Weinsteins made the announcement today, however they didn’t confirm when we can expect to see Gold in theaters.
Patrick Massett and John Zinman wrote the script and Black Bear Pictures is financing the mining drama which is inspired by a true story. Teddy Schwarzman, Michael Nozi, Massett, Zinman and McConaughey are producing the film.
“Harvey and I were so intrigued by the unique and compelling story behind Gold and couldn’t be more excited to work with this highly esteemed group of filmmakers and artists,” stated Bob Weinstein. “We loved working with Teddy on The Imitation Game and we see this movie having the potential to be both a commercial and artistic success.”
Gold is inspired by the true story about the 1993 Bre-X Mineral Corporation mining scandal where large amounts of gold were reportedly discovered in the Indonesian jungle. Matthew McConaughey stars as a failing businessman and prospector that teams up with a luckless geologist/explorer played by Edgar Ramirez. The duo heads into the Indonesian jungle on the trail of undiscovered gold.
