Isla Fisher to Co-Star With Matthew McConaughey in ‘Beach Bum’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Isla Fisher is set to star opposite Matthew McConaughey in Harmony Korine’s next movie, “Beach Bum,” sources tell Variety.

The film will be a co-production between Neon and Vice with Neon, which bought the rights for the film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, handling distribution. CAA will be negotiating the domestic sales while Rocket Science handled international sales.

“Beach Bum” is a comedy that follows the misadventures of Moondog (McConaughey), a rebellious and lovable rogue who lives life large. Fisher will play Moondog’s wife.

The film will be written and directed by Korine, whose unique filmmaking style gained recognition with “Spring Breakers,” which starred James Franco and brought in $31 million at the worldwide box office.

Le Grisbi Productions’ John Lesher, Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Iconoclast’s Charles-Marie Anthonioz, Mourad Belkeddar, and Nicolas Lhermitte will produce. The film is executive produced by Tom Quinn and Tim League for Neon and Shane Smith, Eddy Moretti, and Danny Gabai for Vice.

Fisher had a busy 2016, which included “The Brother Grimsby,” “Keeping up With the Joneses,” and Tom Ford’s “Nocturnal Animals.” Fisher just recently wrapped production on “Tag” opposite Jeremy Renner and Jon Hamm.

She is repped by UTA and Sloane Offer Weber & Dern.
