Hide your bongos, Miami, Matthew McConaughey is coming to town.
The “True Detective” is coming to Miami to shoot Harmony Korine’s The Beach Bum. Korine is best known as the writer-director of the 2012 hit Spring Breakers, which was filmed in Tampa, Sarasota and St. Petersburg.
Given its pedigree, the film isn’t expected to be a lighthearted rom-com.
This summer, the Dazed and Confused actor released the box office bomb The Dark Tower with Idris Elba, which is based on the Stephen King series. The film, which was considered by critics to be “a dull disappointment,” must have McConaughey jonesing for a hit.
Pre-production on McConaughey’s Miami flick starts September 2, so expect the Texan in town soon.
The film, which is being kept tightly under wraps, is scheduled to film until mid-December.
“They’re keeping it very secretive,” says a source.
