Jennifer Garner is in talks to join the cast of THE DALLAS BUYERS CLUB, opposite Matthew McConaughey. The project, currently being re-written by Jean-Marc Vallee, follows the true story of Ron Woodroof who, when diagnosed with AIDS and frustrated with the lack of medical options, created a lucrative smuggling business that made alternative drugs available to patients and helped himself live for another six years. Garner would play Dr. Eve Saks, the female lead.
Producing will be Robbie Brenner, Rachel Rothman-Winter, Nathan Ross, David Bushell and Marc Abraham.
Garner last starred in “Butter” and “The Odd Life of Timothy Green”. Next on her slate is the comedy “The Bachelorette Party”, opposite Anna Farris.
She is repped by WME.
