Bel Powley Joins Matthew McConaughey in 'White Boy Rick'
British actress Bel Prowley will play Matthew McConaughey's drug-addicted daughter in the upcoming drug-drama White Boy Rick, a film set in the 80s in Detroit, at the height of the crack epidemic.
Telling the true-like story of Richard Wershe Jr., who became an undercover informant at the age of 14 before becoming a major dealer until his arrest at age 17, the film has yet to cast its lead. Bruce Dern will play a grandfather while Jennifer Jason Leigh and Rory Cochrane will star as FBI agents working with Wershe Jr. during his time as an informant.
Yann Demange is directing for Sony-based Studio 8, its second project after Solutrean. Powley broke out with her role in 2015s The Diary of a Teenage Girl, and has since starred in films such as A Storm in Our Stars and Ashes in the Snow.
