Michelle Williams is set to join Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez in Stephen Gaghan’s mining drama “Gold” at The Weinstein Company and Black Bear Pictures.
Patrick Massett and John Zinman penned the script which is inspired by true events. Said events involve the 1993 Bre-X Minerals mining scandal, in which vast amounts of gold were reportedly discovered in the Indonesian jungle.
Williams will play McConaughey’s wife in the project. McConaughey, Massett, Zinman, Teddy Schwarzman and Michael Nozik will produce.
Filming begins next month in New York, New Mexico and Thailand.
