‘White Boy Rick’ Trailer: Matthew McConaughey’s Son Becomes a Drug Lord Album

It’s time for a trip to 1980s Detroit.

Sony Pictures Entertainment dropped a trailer Monday for “White Boy Rick,” a crime drama starring Matthew McConaughey. Based on a true story, the film follows a father (McConaughey) and his son, Rick Wershe Jr. (Richie Merritt) as the teen makes a name for himself as a big-time drug dealer during the War on Drugs. The trailer highlights an even stranger part of the story: Rick served as a undercover police informant while still in his early teenage years. Of course, the preview only shows portions of the story, but what it shows includes highs and lows, moving family dynamics, and plenty of illegal activity.

The cast also includes Bel Powley, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Brian Tyree Henry, Rory Cochrane, RJ Cyler, Jonathan Majors, Eddie Marsan, Bruce Dern, and Piper Laurie. The film is directed by Yann Demange and was written by Andy Weiss, Logan Miller, and Noah Miller.

“White Boy Rick” is slated to hit theaters Sept. 14.
