Matthew McConaughey is set to star in Strike Entertainment’s THE DALLAS BUYERS CLUB. Jean-Marc Vallee is attached to direct from a draft currently by Chase Palmer that 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. Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling were previously attached to star.
David Bushell and Marc Abraham will produce with Eric Newman exec producing and Robbie Brenner co-producing.
McConaughey is repped by CAA.
