The first official look at The Paperboy is a noirish, retro poster.
The unusually stylish promo one sheet (by recent Hollywood standards) shows Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman front and centre, with co-stars Matthew McConaughey and John Cusack.
Oscar-nominated Precious director Lee Daniels is tackling Pete Dexter’s 1995 novel, which the Deadwood author has adapted. McConaughey plays a reporter investigating the possible wrongful conviction of a man (Cusack) on death row. The journalist recruits his troublesome little brother (Efron) to help, but the younger sibling ends up falling for a woman (Kidman) who writes passionate letters to Cusack’s prisoner.
Millenium Pictures aim to release the Florida-set thriller this year. Poster courtesy of EW.com.
