  Friedkin returns
  When small-time drug dealer Chris (Emile Hirsch) has his entire stash stolen by his very own mother, he plans to dispatch of her and cash in on her $50,000 life insurance to repay his debts. On recommendation he approaches Detective Joe Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), an enigmatic, dirty cop, who moonlights as a contract killer. Unable to get his usual upfront retainer, Joe sets his sight on Chris’ innocent sister Dottie (Juno Temple) as collateral for the job. But the simple agreement turns complicated when Dottie forms an unusual bond with Killer Joe and everything begins to unravel… Based on the play by Pulitzer and Tony Award winner Tracy Letts, "Killer Joe" is a controversial and shockingly cool black comedy thriller from cult director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection), starring Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Gina Gershon and Thomas Haden Church.

Killer Joe is released in cinemas June 29th. The trailer is at the link above.
