Lionsgate has provided us with an exclusive featurette for Killer Joe, debuting on Blu-ray and DVD December 21. Emile Hirsch stars as Chris, a cash-strapped young man who hires a hitman (Matthew McConaughey) to kill his mother, so he can collect on her life insurance policy. Director William Friedkin takes us behind-the-scenes of this dark, Southern comedy in this new video.
Killer Joe Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) is a Dallas detective who doubles as a hit man with the charm of a southern gentleman. Chris (Emile Hirsch) hires Joe to kill his mother in order to collect her life insurance and pay off his debts. Unable to pay for the service upfront Joe takes Chris' sister Dottie (Temple) as a retainer until he can be paid.
