New Line, McConaughey double-deal

New Line is getting in the ring with Matthew McConaughey — twice — negotiating for him to star in the romantic comedy “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past,” and closing a deal for him to top-line the raucous comedy “The Grackle.” The studio has also staked McConaughey’s j.k. livin’ Prods. to a first-look deal. Though the intention is for McConaughey to star in “Ghosts” early next year, it is contingent upon New Line completing a turnaround deal to take the picture from Disney, which developed the project for several years.
