Matthew Mcconaughey is set to star as a surfer in the middle of an existential crisis in the new film SURFER, DUDE. The SAHARA star is currently filming FOOL'S GOLD in Australia, where he has been frequently photographed catching waves, and now it looks like his surfing skills are about to pay off. Production on the new film, which MCConaughey will also produce, will start on 7 May (07) in Malibu, California.
