Gael Garcia Bernal is in talks to join Matthew McConaughey in Jean-Marc Vallee’s “The Dallas Buyer’s Club” says The Hollywood Reporter.
McConaughey plays a Texas electrician diagnosed with AIDS who began smuggling alternative drugs into the U.S. to help himself and other AIDS patients. His actions put him on a collision course with the F.D.A..
Garcia Bernal will play an effeminate member of the club and a fellow AIDS patient who meets Woodroof in the hospital. Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack adapted the script and shooting kicks off next month in New Orleans.
