Matthew McConaughey is about to tackle a funny movie, but this time there's no romantic prefix. Along with Emile Hirsch, he's signed on to star in Killer Joe, a black comedy. The movie is about siblings (one of which is played by Hirsch) who want to have their mother killed for the insurance money, so they hire a hitman (McConaughey) to work for them.
Is McConaughey ready to leave his Mr. Shirtless days behind him? Between this news and his upcoming film The Lincoln Lawyer, I'm happy to see him expanding his horizons again. As for Hirsch, I have no problems picturing him as a crazy little deviant.
