Matthew McConaughey, Alamo’s Tim League join forces for new movie

Two of Austin’s movie men have a new project together.

Tim League’s distribution company, Neon, and Vice have bought the U.S. rights to “Beach Bum,” a film to be written and directed by Harmony Korine (“Spring Breakers”) and starring Matthew McConaughey. The movie is scheduled to begin production this fall for a 2018 release, Deadline reports.

League, founder of the Alamo Drafthouse, will be an executive producer on the film, described as “an irreverent comedy that follows the misadventures of Moondog (McConaughey), a rebellious and lovable rogue who lives life large.” Sounds about right for Austin’s spirit animal.
