Jennifer Garner Joins Matthew McConaughey In 'The Dallas Buyer's Club'

The Playlist By Edward Davis | The Playlist October 31, 2012 at 8:52PM

With stand out roles in "Magic Mike," "Killer Joe," "Bernie," "The Paperboy" and "Mud," Matthew McConaughey is having arguably the best year of his career in 2012. With Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street" on deck and a meaty lead role in the intriguing drama "The Dallas Buyer's Club," 2013 should continue Mac's impressive reawakening. Joining him for the ride in the latter project is Jennifer Garner. She replaces Hilary Swank, who dropped out of the picture earlier this year.

With stand out roles in "Magic Mike," "Killer Joe," "Bernie," "The Paperboy" and "Mud," Matthew McConaughey is having arguably the best year of his career in 2012. With Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street" on deck and a meaty lead role in the intriguing drama "The Dallas Buyer's Club," 2013 should continue Mac's impressive reawakening. Joining him for the ride in the latter project is Jennifer Garner. She replaces Hilary Swank, who dropped out of the picture earlier this year.

To be directed by Jean-Marc Vallée ("Café de Flore," "The Young Victoria") "The Dallas Buyer's Club" is based on the true story of a man diagnosed with AIDS in 1986 who was only given months to live. With nothing to lose, he began experimenting with underground, non-FDA-approved drugs and wound up living longer than expected. He began getting these drugs into the hands of other AIDS sufferers as well, but it wasn't long before the FDA tried to shut him down.

Gael Garcia Bernal co-stars as an effeminate member of the "club" who is also suffering from AIDS, and who meets the protagonist, played by the dramatically thin McConaughey (surely you've seen those paparazzi photos by now). Garner is in talks to star as the female lead, Dr. Eve Saks. She's been semi out of circulation since becoming a mom, but has appeared recently in "Butter" and "The Odd Life of Timothy Green." Another key role, a cross-dresser, is apparently almost finalized, but no names have been revealed yet. Production begins November 11th in New Orleans, so the finalized members of the cast should arrive soon. [Deadline]
