Paperboy Poster Delivered
Nicole Kidman and co get sweaty

29 December 2011  |  Written by James White  |  Source: The Film Stage

While his civil rights march drama Selma remains stuck in development hell, Precious director Lee Daniels has ploughed ahead shooting sultry thriller The Paperboy. And now the first poster for the film has arrived online, and is sitting below for your perusal.

Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron lead the cast in the film, which novelist Pete Dexter has adapted from his own 1995 book.

McConaughey is a reporter investigating the possible wrongful conviction of a man sitting on death row (John Cusack). The newspaperman ropes in his wayward brother (Efron) to help with the job, but the younger man ends up falling for a beautiful woman (Nicole Kidman), who has been courting danger by writing passionate letters to Cusack. Suffice to say, it all becomes tangled up in a twisty mystery of sex, violence and bad decisions.


To see the poster full size at The Film Stage, click the pic above.

The poster’s a nice change from the usual floaty head style – patterned after a novel itself, it’s evocative and shoves the cast front and centre. We’re hoping that this could be something better than your run-of-the-mill thriller.

There’s no set release date either here or in the States yet, but we can expect this one sometime in 2012.

I Catch The Paperboy So He Don't Blow Away
Paperboy is an an absolutely crap title for this movie, it doesn't give you any clue as to what the movie's about and would not make me want to see it. A movie about a guy on death row is called Paperboy??? More

RE: Paperboy Poster Delivered
L: Super Hans On reading the headline alone, I honestly thought this was about an adaption of the old computer game.  'Disappointment' doesn't even come close... e too... More
