First Look Photo: Matthew McConaughey & Edgar Ramirez in 'Gold'

Gold First Look

Time for a first look - just one photo via from the new film titled simply Gold, being directed by Stephen Gaghan. The film stars Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez as an "unlikely pair" who team up when they find one of the largest gold mines in the world in the Indonesian jungle. The full cast includes Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Bryce Dallas Howard, but none of them are seen in this shot. The photo is just Ramirez and McConaughey, face to face, in the jungle. We'll have to wait until a trailer debuts to get a better sense of where this is going, and if it turns out these guys are trying to save the jungle or profit from it. In the meantime, take a look below and stay tuned for more on this film from Black Bear Pictures/Hwy61.

Gold - First Look Photo

The description from says Gold stars McConaughey "as a struggling businessman named Kenny Wells who teams up with Edgar Ramirez's equally hapless geologist to find fortune by searching for — you guessed it — gold in the Indonesian jungle." Gold is directed by Stephen Gaghan (director of Syriana and Abandon previously, as well as writer on Traffic, Rules of Engagement and The Alamo), from a screenplay by Patrick Massett and John Zinman. McConaughey also produced with Black Bear's Teddy Schwarzman, HWY 61's Michael Nozik. One of our original posts says they stumble "onto one of the largest gold mines in the world in the Indonesian jungle" and the film is about the scandal that followed with the Bre-X Mineral Corporation inflating the amount of gold and the financial madness that followed. The film is shooting now.

Mattew was also in a movie called FOOL'S GOLD...coincidence? // Possibly one of the biggest tonal reversals in similar titled film history.
