KILLER JOE stars Matthew McConaughey (THE LINCOLN LAWYER) and Emile Hirsch (INTO THE WILD) in the title roles with a strong supporting cast including Juno Temple (upcoming THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, DIRTY GIRL), Thomas Haden Church (SIDEWAYS) and Gina Gershon (BOUND).
The film was directed by renowned Oscar-winning director, William Friedkin (THE EXORCIST, THE FRENCH CONNECTION) with a script by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright, Tracy Letts. This marks the second time Friedkin and Letts have collaborated together, the first time being for the 2006 film, BUG (both films were adapted from Letts’ stage plays by the same name). BUG won the FIPRESCI prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006.
When 22-year-old Chris (Emile Hirsch) finds himself in debt to a drug lord, he hires a hit man to dispatch his mother, whose $50,000 life insurance policy benefits his sister Dottie (Juno Temple). Chris finds Joe Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a creepy, crazy Dallas cop who moonlights as a contract killer. When Chris can’t pay Joe upfront, Joe sets his sight on Dottie as collateral for the job. The contract killer and his hostage develop an unusual bond. Like from a modern-day, twisted fairy tale, “Killer Joe” Cooper becomes the prince to Dottie’s Cinderella. Based on the play by Pulitzer and Tony Award winner Tracy Letts, “Killer Joe” is a garish, provocative black comedy from Academy Award-winning director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) and stars Emile Hirsch, Matthew McConaughey, Juno Temple, Thomas Hayden Church, and Gina Gershon.
