Matthew McConaughey is set to star in The Beach Bum. Harmony Korine (“Spring Breakers”) will write and direct the film.

The plot follows the hilarious misadventures of Moondog, a rebellious and loveable rogue who lives life large.

Korine said “’The Beach Bum’ will be a wild, audacious ride! And I can’t think of anyone better than Matthew McConaughey to play our hero Moondog, a rebellious charmer in this fast-paced, uplifting and irreverent comedy.”

Rocket Science will handle international sales commencing at the European Film Market in Berlin.

LeGrisbi Productions’ John Lesher, Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, and Iconoclast’s Charles-Marie Anthonioz, Mourad Belkeddar and Nicolas Lhermitte will produce, with principal photography scheduled to begin in July.

Lesher said “In ‘The Beach Bum,’ Harmony has crafted the perfect movie for our dark and serious time — a refreshingly original, irreverent, and hilarious stoner comedy that only he could create. I am thrilled to be working with him, as well as my friends at Anonymous and Iconoclast, on what is sure to redefine the genre and take its place amongst the great comedies.”

Thorsten Schumacher, CEO and founder of Rocket Science, commented “Exhilarating and outrageous, Matthew McConaughey’s Moondog character is pure charisma — a force of nature and an uncompromising maverick with a lust for life and everything it throws at him. ‘The Beach Bum’ brings together an incredible team of acting, directing and producing talent, who have been integral in creating some of the most iconic, commercial and acclaimed films of recent years.”
