Matthew McConaughey in Talks to Star in 'White Boy Rick'

Matthew McConaughey works up a sweat while going for a jog on Friday (November 18) in Malibu, Calif.

The 47-year-old actor Gold actor was also spotted out earlier this week looking handsome during a date night with his wife Camila Alves in New York City.

It was recently announced that Matthew is in negotiations to star in the upcoming movie White Boy Rick.

The film tells the story of Richard Wershe Jr., who in the mid-1980s at the age of only 14 became an undercover informant for local and federal law enforcement agencies and then established himself as a major drug dealer. The dual life he led eventually put him into the cross-hairs of the feds when he was found with 17 pounds of cocaine (at only 17 years of age). He was put in jail for life, but ethical questions remain as how much the feds were involved in putting him deeper into his life of drugs (via Deadline).

Matthew would play Richard’s father.

The film will be directed by Yann Demange and is set to begin production early next year.
