Matthew McConaughey’s ‘Gold’ Gets Christmas Release

TWC-Dimension has given a Dec. 25 release date to Matthew McConaughey’s adventure drama “Gold.”

McConaughey stars as a modern-day prospector desperate for a lucky break who teams up with a similarly eager geologist — played by Edgar Ramirez — and sets off to find gold in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia.

“Syriana” helmer Stephen Gaghan directed from a script by Patrick Massett and John Zinman.

“Gold” is financed by Black Bear Pictures and Black Bear’s Teddy Schwarzman and HWY 61’s Michael Nozik served as producers alongside Massett, Zinman and McConaughey. HWY 61 partner Paul Haggis, Richard Middleton and Black Bear’s Ben Stillman are executive producers.

Bryce Dallas Howard portrays the longtime girlfriend of McConaughey’s character, with her loyalty tested as the hunt for gold pushes their relationship to its breaking point. Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Bruce Greenwood and Stacy Keach also star.

Christmas is on a Sunday, so “Gold” is the only film slated to open that day. Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” opens nine days earlier on Dec. 16 along with Warner’s Will Smith drama “Collateral Beauty.”

TWC recently pushed Alicia Vikander’s “Tulip Fever” out of July and back to February.

The company has three other films set for the remainder of 2016: “The Founder,” with Michael Keaton as McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc, coming on Aug. 5; “Hands of Stone,” about boxer Roberto Duran, due on Aug. 26; and “Lion,” a Thanksgiving opener about an Indian boy who makes his way home after being adopted by an Australian couple.
