White Boy Rick Trailer (2018)
Trailer for White Boy Rick, starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Matthew McConaughey, Eddie Marsan, Rory Cochrane and Brian Tyree Henry.
Set in 1980s Detroit at the height of the crack epidemic and the War on Drugs, White Boy Rick is based on the moving true story of a blue-collar father and his teenage son, Rick Wershe Jr., who became an undercover police informant and later a drug dealer, before he was abandoned by his handlers and sentenced to life in prison.
Even though the story is set in Detroit, Michigan, production took place in Cleveland, Ohio.
The film features quite the ensemble. So much so that some big names didn't even make an appearance in the first trailer. Can you guess who?
There is something totally cool about this first trailer for White Boy Rick. While the film portrays itself as a McConaughey-starrer, the main character is actually played by Richie Merritt. And who is that? We aren't sure, as this is his first role. Nice big debut!
The music, the stylings, and (of course) the story all look great. So much so I'm now tempted to head on over to Wikipedia to read up on the real story.
