The Dallas Buyer's Club is one of those projects that has been floating around Hollywood for years, just waiting for the stars to align with the right director and actor. When we last heard about it, Ryan Gosling was set to take it on with his Lars and the Real Girl director Craig Gillespie, but the plan fell through. Now, Matthew McConaughey has scooped up the film, in which he'll star as real-life AIDS patient Woodroof, an electrician in Dallas who started a drug ring to acquire the illegal medications he needed to fight for his life. McConaughey has locked in director Jean Marc Vallee (The Young Victoria) to help get the project off the ground. Only time will tell if the film finally finds its wings, but I'm on board with another serious turn for McConaughey — especially one that takes the Texas native back to his hometown.
