Matthew McConaughey is a dirty, twisted cop in "Killer Joe," from director William Friedkin ("The Exorcist") and screenwriter Tracy Letts ("Bug," also directed by Friedkin).
McConaughey, who has been pursuing meaty indie roles of late, is joined by Emile Hirsch, Gina Gershon, Juno Temple and Thomas Haden Church in this "totally twisted deep-fried Texas redneck trailer park murder story." Take a bite with the trailer below. LD Entertainment releases "Killer Joe" July 27. It's 89% Fresh, with McConaughey earning nothing but praise. The film debuted at Venice 2011, where Friedkin won the Golden Mouse, followed by Toronto and SXSW.
