Harmony Korine, the director of Spring Breakers, is releasing a new movie – The Beach Bum Trailer but instead of teenage girls and James Franco, this time it’s Snoop Dogg and Matthew McConaughey.
McConaughey plays the title character, Moon Dog, who writes poetry, tries to buy acid at convenience stores and sums up his attitude toward life thusly: “I’m gonna suck the nectar out of it and f**k it raw dog till the wheels come off.” All the information we have about Snoop Dogg’s character so far is that his name is Lingerie.
What we do know is a little bit about the on-set relationship between McConaughey and Snoop. The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past star described an experience with the rapper-turned actor:
We get to the scene, it’s a six-minute scene, we’re passing [the weed] back and forth. All of a sudden at the end he goes, ‘Yo, Moondog’ — that’s my character — he goes, ‘That ain’t prop weed. That’s Snoop Weed.’ I went, ‘Oh, you son of a gun.’ Now the next nine hours were a lot of fun, but I don’t believe we used one word in the English language.
The trailer is very early, as the film itself won’t actually come out until March of 2019.
