This morning, it was announced that director William Friedkin and writer Tracy Letts’ Killer Joe will have its North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival and we now have a first look at a clip from the film as well as photos. You can watch the clip below and the photos are available here. The film is describes as follows:
When 22 year old drug dealer Chris (Emile Hirsch) has his stash stolen by his mother, he has to come up with six thousand dollars quick or he’s dead. Desperate, he turns to “Killer Joe” (Matthew McConaughey) when he finds out that his mother’s life insurance policy is worth $50,000. Although Joe usually demands cash up front, he finds himself willing to bend the rules in exchange for Chris’ attractive younger sister, Dottie (Juno Temple), who will serve as sexual collateral until the money comes in… if it ever does.
Thomas Haden Church and Gina Gershon also star.
