Killer Joe

Right now the film is playing the 2012 South by Southwest Film Festival down in Austin, Texas (stay tuned right here for Jeremy's coverage), and there's already buzz on the internet about Killer Joe, the Southern thriller from director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, French Connection). When a debt puts a young man (Emile Hirsch) in danger, he turns to a shady hitman (Matthew McConaughey) to take out on his evil mother in order to collect the insurance. The film is getting buzz for a graphic scene of violence and sex and fried chicken (but we won't spoil it), which explains this new teaser poster sent to us. See it!

Here's the new teaser poster for William Friedkin's Killer Joe:

Killer Joe is directed by Oscar-winning director, William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection, Rules of Engagement, Bug) with a script by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright, Tracy Letts, and marks their second collaboration after teaming up for the 2006 film Bug. When 22-year-old Chris (Emile Hirsch) is in hock to a drug lord, he needs money quick and stumbles on the scheme of hiring a hit man (Matthew McConaughey) to dispatch his mother, whose $50,000 life insurance policy is supposed to go to his sister Dottie. The film has hit SXSW 2012, but doesn't have an official U.S. release date just yet.
