AFM: Jennifer Garner Near Deal To Star In Drama ‘Dallas Buyers Club’

EXCLUSIVE: Jennifer Garner is in talks to star in the long-gestating drama Dallas Buyers Club alongside Matthew McConaughey. The plot centers on a man who was given six months to live after contracting AIDS in 1986; he lived another six years by illegally smuggling medicine into the U.S., making sure a lot of other sufferers got them too. The spirit of the drama paints a picture at the time of powerful and unyielding bureaucrats at the Food and Drug Administration. We’re hearing that the production is also close to casting the key role of a cross-dresser, but nothing’s been sealed.¬†Worldwide rights are available with Voltage Pictures’ Nicolas Chartier setting up sales at AFM.
