McConaughey, Maguire Hire A “Paperboy”

Matthew McConaughey, Tobey Maguire, Sofia Vergara and Zac Efron are set to star in Lee Daniels’ sexual thriller “Paperboy” for Millennium Films says Digital Spy.

Based on Peter Dexter’s 1995 novel, the story follows a Miami Times reporter who returns to his hometown in Florida to cover the imprisonment of a death row inmate.

“Volver” director Pedro Almodovar had been developing the property for a decade with Dexter before “Precious” director Daniels came aboard. Best guess is he’ll stay on as a producer alongside Hilary Shor.
