Matthew McConaughey Joins Jack Black in "Bernie" Comedy

Posted: October 1st, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Matthew McConaughey Joins Jack Black in "Bernie" ComedySubmit Comment
Matthew McConaughey is joining Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine in "Bernie," the dark comedy being directed by Richard Linklater (School of Rock, Dazed and Confused). Also boarding the pic is Rip Torn (Dodgeball, Men in Black).

"Bernie" is set in the small town of Carthage, Texas, and follows community leader/mortician Bernie (Black), who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a wealthy but very particular widow (MacLaine). When he kills her, he goes to great lengths to maintain the illusion that she is still alive.

McConaughey will play the town's district attorney, always angling for re-election and suspicious about the widow's death. Torn will play Bernie's defense lawyer.

The movie shoots next month in Texas.

Whatever you do, don't let Rip Torn drink on set. Or do. Who knows, he might construct a piece of art or rob the local grocery store. Either way, could be good for a few laughs.

Matthew McConaughey Joins Jack Black in "Bernie" Comedy .... weed and bongo drums soon to follow. Freudian has a point. With Jack, Matt and Rip there, it might turn out to be another Burning Man/Woodstock followed by a crime spree that might draw out Walker : Texas Ranger

what happened to this guy?I saw some potential in him to become an action hero after watching 'reign of fire'(even though the movie was crap)and instead he kept replaying the same dumb roll over and over again in stupid comedies...

I was hoping it'd be Bernie from "Weekend at Bernie's".

maybe only because McConaughey's acting reminds me of watching a dead guy move around on screen.

Oh wait... that's channing tatum I'm thinking of. Or was it Keanu? Whatever, let's get a weekend at bernie's remake or reboot

This acually sounds pretty close to Weekend at Bernie's anyway. But it will automatically be less cool because it's not from the 80's.............. that and no Andrew McCarthy of course............. yeah...........

Andrew McCarthy should play the dead guy.
It may be stretching his acting abilities a bit though.
