Matthew McConaughey film “Sea of Trees” casting call in Boston, Massachusetts

According to Variety, Matthew McConaughey said he was drawn to the poetic nature of the screenplay by Chris Sparling (“Buried”). “It was the best script I remember reading in the last five years,” said the actor who recently won the Oscar for “Dallas Buyers Club,” noting that it “felt like a bunch of beautiful haikus, back to back. It was incredibly surprising. I got chills a few times just in the read of it.”

Sea of Trees” follows a suicidal American (Matthew McConaughey) who befriends a man (Ken Watanabe) lost in Japan’s Aokigahara forest. Negotiations are underway with Naomi Watts to play the female lead–the character of McConaughey’s wife.
