07.28.11 by BJSprecher
After a five-year hiatus, legendary filmmaker William Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist) returns with Killer Joe, a black comedy inspired by yet another Tracy Letts play — Friedkin's last movie, Bug (2006), was inspired by Letts' play of the same name. Killer Joe stars Matthew McConaughey as a hitman willing to bend his rule about always getting the money for a hit up front when he discovers that his drug dealer client (Emile Hirsch) has an attractive younger sister (Juno Temple) who could serve as sexual "collateral" until the money comes through. Thomas Haden Church and Gina Gershon also star.
Killer Joe will have its North American debut at the Toronto International Film Festival. It does not yet have a U.S. release date.>
