Reese Witherspoon will star alongside Matthew McConaughey in Mud

Reese Witherspoon and Matthew McConaughey will star alongside Tye Sheridan (THE TREE OF LIFE) for the film MUD which will be directed by Jeff Nichols. The film is a tale of redemption and friendship for a fugitive named Mud (McConaughey). When Mud forms an unlikely bond with a young fourteen year-old named Ellis (Sheridan), the youngster decides to help his new buddy escape from the law and some bounty hunters who are after him in order to help reunite Mud with his soul mate, Juniper (Witherspoon). MUD will be the third film Nichols has directed, his sophomoric effort TAKE SHELTER is set to hit theaters on September 30, 2011.
I love Reese Witherspoon and hope that this role will continue to help Matthew McConaughey get back on track. He seems to be lining up some interesting roles since this year’s THE LINCOLN LAWYER, which is a nice turn from his romantic comedies over the past couple of years.
