Matthew-McConaughey-in-mudOne of the movies we’re very much looking forward to seeing at Sundance 2013 has to be Mud starring Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon. It’s directed by Jeff Nichols who has previously brought us the wonderfully clever and seriously intense movie Take Shelter (if you’ve never seen it, you really should).

Also starring are Tye Sheridan, Sam Shepard, Sarah Paulson, Michael Shannon (who took on the lead role in Take Shelter), Ray McKinnon, Joe Don Baker and Paul Sparks.

Two boys, Ellis and his friend Neckbone, who find a man named Mud hiding out on an island in the Mississippi. Mud describes fantastic scenarios — he killed a man in Texas and vengeful bounty hunters are coming to get him. He says he is planning to meet and escape with the love of his life, Juniper, who is waiting for him in town. Skeptical but intrigued, Ellis and Neckbone agree to help him. It isn’t long until Mud’s visions come true and their small town is besieged by a beautiful girl with a line of bounty hunters in tow.

Check out this intriguing and brilliant first trailer for Mud which we can expect in the UK later this year.
