Jeff Nichols’ Third Film ‘Mud’ Gets A Release Date


Director Jeff Nichols sort of came out of nowhere with the unsettling and very emotional drama Take Shelter, starring Michael Shannon. Since then he’s been a director on my watch list and the announcement of his newest film Mud getting a release date means that I have yet another film to look forward to this year.

Mud stars Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon and while the idea of the film — McConaughey’s character trying to reach Witherspoon’s via the Mississippi River — sounds kinda odd, I’m more than willing to bet Nichols has a trick or two up his sleeve.

Sam Shepard and Michael Shannon also appear in the film in some manner.

Mud is now scheduled for release on April 26th, 2013.
