It’s been an uphill struggle for gay director Lee Daniels to make a follow-up to Previous, but now he’s got The Paperboy, which will debut in competition at Cannes later this month. The first clip has now been released, with Matthew McConaughey’s reporter talking to John Cusack about a murder. The film is about a directionless young man (Zac Efron) who helps his reporter brother (McConaughey) investigate the possible wrongful conviction of a man on death row (Cusack), and in the process, falls for the woman whom the convict has been romancing through prison correspondence. It shoulld be out later this year.
