Jack Black to Murder Shirley MacLaine in Richard Linklater’s Bernie

By

I looks like Richard Linklater’s latest, Bernie, is going to be coming to theaters at some point in the near future. The dark comedy starring Jack Black was just bought by Millennium. “Inspired by a true story, the film stars Jack Black as the title character, an amiable funeral director who kills a rich widow (Shirley MacLaine) and creates a ruse that she’s still alive.” Also, Matthew McConaughey is in it! OK, I’m listening.
