The Paperboy Poster Revealed

Mean ‘n’ moody first look at Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron in the new film from Precious director Lee Daniels.



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.
