Matthew McConaughey Slated to be Caballo Blanco in ‘Born to Run’ Adaptation

 

Full details of the film aren’t finalized, but producer Deb Newmyer says runners will be needed as extras.

 

Ever since Matthew McConaughey signed on to star in Born to Run, there was one key detail missing: Which character would he play?

 

Deb Newmyer, president of Outlaw Productions and one of the film’s producers, told Runner’s World Newswire that McConaughey will play the role of Caballo Blanco, a.k.a Micah True, the ultrarunner who often ran with the Tarahumara people in Mexico. He became a central character in Christopher McDougall's book Born to Run and later died on a run in New Mexico in 2012.

 

“As I understand, Matthew read the book and fell in love with the character,” says Newmyer. She added that they also might film on location in Copper Canyon in Mexico, but that no specifics have been set....
