Matthew McConaughey Plays a London Cannabis Kingpin in Guy Ritchie’s New Movie
Matthew McConaughey is taking a trip across the pond for his latest movie role, but he’s taking his stoner swag and twangy Texas accent with him.

In the first trailer for Guy Ritchie’s latest British gangster flick, “The Gentlemen,” McConaughey jumps on the screen in plaid suits and dapper hats as an American expat cannabis kingpin, growing and selling bud in London’s criminal underground.

Following what seems to be a traditional Guy Ritchie story arch, McConaughey’s ganja empire is challenged by a new crime boss in town, causing a bloody turf war. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Guy Ritchie joint without a few laughs, and “The Gentleman” doesn’t appear to sacrifice any humor amongst the endless gunshots.
