‘THE BEACH BUM’ Starring Matthew McConaughey Will Be Released in 2018

May 19, 2017


NEON and VICE announced that they have acquired the US rights to Harmony Korine’s upcoming film, THE BEACH BUM, an irreverent comedy, starring Matthew McConaughey.

The Beach Bum follows the hilarious misadventures of Moondog (McConaughey), a rebellious and lovable rogue who lives life large. Written and directed by Korine. LeGrisbi Productions’ John Lesher, Anonymous Content’s Steve Colin, Iconoclast’s Charlie-Marie Anthonioz, Mourad Belkeddar and Nicholas Lhemitte will produce. Tom Quinn and Tim League for NEON and Shane Smith, Eddy Moretti and Danny Gabai from VICE executive produce.

NEON said:

“We’ve been huge fans of the singularly talented Harmony Korine for a very long time now. Together with our good friends at VICE we’re tickled to death to launch THE BEACH BUM, which promises to be a wild, crazy and intoxicating piece of cinema.”

Eddy Moretti, VICE Chief Creative Officer said:

“Harmony is like family to me, and to all of us at VICE for over a decade. And finally we can work together creatively on his most ambitious, hilarious, and oddly existential film. And this is just the beginning of making more movie magic with Harmony. We have lots of wonderfully weird things up our sleeves. I’d also like to say that in Tom Quinn and Tim League of NEON, VICE has found a true partnership based on friendship, trust, and common artistic sensibilities. More to come from VICE and NEON as well.”

Production is set to begin this fall to be released in 2018.

Korine’s film Spring Breaker brought in over $31 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing film of his career.
