Matthew McConaughey is considering a role in independent movie The Headhunter's Calling.
Pajiba.com reports that the Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past actor is eyeing up the lead role of a workaholic headhunter in the drama from first-time screenwriter Bill Dubuque.
The story follows "a workaholic corporate headhunter" who has alienated his family for years and lets his "cut-throat business compromise his ethics in pursuit of financial gain, until he finds out his oldest has leukaemia and decides that family is more valuable than anything else".
Matthew - who has two children with long-time girlfriend Camila Alves - will next be seen opposite Marisa Tomei, William H Macy and Ryan Phillippe in an adaptation of the thriller, The Lincoln Lawyer.
He is also teaming up with writer Marc Hyman to develop a scripted comedy about two brothers for the small screen.
