Actor Matthew McConaughey is in negotiations to star in White Boy Rick. The film will follow the true story of Detroit teenager Richard Wershe Jr, who became an informant for local and federal authorities when he was just 14 years old, eventually becoming a drug kingpin in the city in the 1980s, reported Deadline.

If things workout McConaughey would play Wershe’s blue-collar father, who watches his teenage son receive a life sentence for his place in the drug trade. Yann Demange is set to direct the film, with Logan and Nolan Miller penning the script.
