The Beach Bum (2019, D: Korine) S: McConaughey, Efron, Fisher, Snoop Dog, Buffett

NEON and VICE have pre-bought U.S. rights to one of the early Cannes buzz pre-buy titles, the Harmony Korine-directed The Beach Bum. A followup to Korine’s sleeper Spring Breakers, the film will star Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey and is set to begin production this fall with a theatrical release planned for 2018. Pic is an irreverent comedy that follows the misadventures of Moondog (McConaughey), a rebellious and lovable rogue who lives life large. The film will be written and directed by Korine, whose Spring Breakers grossed $31 million worldwide. LeGrisbi Productions’ John Lesher, Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Iconoclast’s Charles-Marie Anthonioz, Mourad Belkeddar and Nicolas Lhermitte will produce. The film is executive produced by Tom Quinn and Tim League for NEON and Shane Smith, Eddy Moretti, and Danny Gabai for VICE. Rocket Science is handling international sales, after introducing the film in Berlin in February.

Per NEON: “We’ve been huge fans of the singularly talented Harmony Korine for a very long time now. Together with our good friends at VICE we’re tickled to death to launch THE BEACH BUM, which promises to be a wild, crazy and intoxicating piece of cinema.

Said VICE Chief Creative Officer Eddy Moretti: “Harmony is like family to me, and to all of us at VICE for over a decade. And finally we can work together creatively on his most ambitious, hilarious, and oddly existential film. And this is just the beginning of making more movie magic with Harmony. We have lots of wonderfully weird things up our sleeves. I’d also like to say that in Tom Quinn and Tim League of NEON, VICE has found a true partnership based on friendship, trust, and common artistic sensibilities. More to come from VICE and NEON as well!”

The deal was negotiated by NEON and CAA on behalf of the filmmakers.

Some news outlets are reporting this as a loose sequel to Spring Breakers.

Spring Breakers was a movie that I'm never quite sure if I loved or hated.

I wonder if Korine's "The Trap" is permanently shelved now. I was really looking forward to him working with Pacino.

Harmony Korine makes it a must-see. He's one of those special filmmakers, who I don't care how good or bad the film might look - I need to see it. Looking forward to a trailer.

Can't say the same about Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy and Mister Lonely.

The new film from HARMONY KORINE.

THE BEACH BUM follows the hilarious misadventures of Moondog (Matthew McConaughey), a rebellious rogue who always lives life by his own rules. Co-starring Snoop Dog, Zac Efron, and Isla Fisher, THE BEACH BUM is a refreshingly original and subversive new comedy from director Harmony Korine (Kids, Spring Breakers).

US Release Date: March 22, 2019

THE BEACH BUM follows the outrageous misadventures of Moondog (Matthew McConaughey), a rebellious burnout who only knows how to live life by his own rules. Complete with an all-star cast including Snoop Dogg, Isla Fisher, Zac Efron, Jimmy Buffett, Martin Lawrence and Jonah Hill, THE BEACH BUM is the wildly original and subversive new comedy from writer/director Harmony Korine (Spring Breakers).

Well, this is his second, so I don't know how that would qualify him as "only" making movies about the people you described. But all of his movies tend to be about outcasts who live on the margins of society. That seems to be what drives him as a filmmaker.

Agree with the other poster that all of Korine's films are about fringe-dwellers, but McConnaughey's character here seems to be wealthy AND an apparently brilliant author, so I'm sure this will be yet another paean to fucked-up geniuses. And hey, Jimmy Buffett AND Bertie Higgins playing themselves . . .

I did not care for this one at all really... Just kind of pointless. Another in a list of Korine movies I don't like.

One thing that was amusing though was how the scenes would shift from location or standing to seated, etc.. Like the characters couldn't keep track of what was going on.

Oh... and Isla Fisher. Perfection.

That's sort of a thing with Korine movies. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I like his work but this film never interested me from the start.

Maybe this is a great movie if you are stoned.

I liked McConaughy's character and probably somebody you would have fun hanging out with but the movie was mediocre.

I did crack up when they were listening to Creed.

The Buffet song in the closing credits is pretty good.
