Before 2014 ending, Lincoln released a new ad featuring McConaughey. The commercial for the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid opens with Matthew nursing a cup of coffee at an empty cafe as he waits for the rain to let up. He then walks out to his car and shows a bit of excitement when he realizes he can now use his sunroof. “Here we go,” he says. Watch it below:
Matthew will return to New Orleans this spring to star in the Civil War drama “The Free State of Jones.”
The independently produced, $65 million project is set to shoot in New Orleans and Lafayette from late February through late May 2015, according to the local Caballero Casting, which recently announced through its Facebook page a casting call for local background extras interested in appearing in the film.
“Hunger Games” and “Seabiscuit” helmer Gary Ross is set to direct “The Free State of Jones,” based on the true story of Newton Knight, the leader of a band of Confederate deserters that turned on the Confederacy during the Civil War. The film gets its title from the efforts of Knight and others to secede from the Confederacy and form their own “Free State of Jones” in Jones County, Miss.
In addition to his anti-Confederacy activities, Knight would go on to marry a former slave and is credited with helping to establish the region’s first mixed-race community.
The 1948 film “Tap Roots,” starring Van Heflin, was partly inspired by Knight’s story.
McConaughey will portray Knight in Ross’ film. Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“Belle,” “Beyond the Lights”) will co-star, playing Rachel Knight, the former slave with whom Knight entered into a common-law marriage, according to an item this week on The Wrap website.
There’s no release date set.
