White Boy Rick is about Richard Wershe Jr., who in the mid-1980s at the age of only 14 became an undercover informant for local and federal law enforcement agencies and then established himself as a major drug dealer. The dual life he led eventually put him into the cross-hairs of the feds when he was found with 17 pounds of cocaine (at only 17 years of age). He was put in jail for life, but ethical questions remain as how much the feds were involved in putting him deeper into his life of drugs.
McConaughey will play Wershe’s father, a blue-collar factory worker trying to keep his family together as the automotive industry collapses around him in Detroit. The producers are currently casting the lead role of the kid now.
