Matthew Mcconaughey - Matthew Mcconaughey Joins Wolf Of Wall Street

Matthew McConaughey has joined the cast of 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.

The 'Magic Mike' actor has signed on to be part of a star-studded ensemble which also includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin, Rob Reiner and Kyle Chandler in the Martin Scorsese-directed movie.

The film is based on former broker Jordan Belfort's best-selling memoir and will see Matthew play Mark Hanna, the early boss and mentor of Leonardo's lead character.

The story - which has been adapted for the big screen by Terence Winter - chronicles the dramatic rise and fall of the Wall Street trader and depicts his hard-partying lifestyle and tumultuous personal life, which included battles against drug and alcohol addiction.

Riza Azis and Joey McFarland of Red Grannite are producing the movie along with Leonardo, Scorsese, Emma Koskoff and Alexandra Milchan.

The film is scheduled to begin shooting in New York this month.

Matthew can currently be seen in both 'Magic Mike' and 'Killer Joe' and also has 'The Paperboy' and 'Mud' ready for release.
