Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are planning a “big-screen remake” of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, reports Life & Style.

According to a supposed “insider” for the tab, “Matt wants to turn a whole new generation of moviegoers into fans of the bandits.”

The magazine claims McConaughey will take on Robert Redford’s role of The Sundance Kid, while Harrelson will portray Paul Newman’s Butch Cassidy.

Life & Style’s “source” says, “There’s already a script in development and [McConaughey] hopes Robert wants to direct!”

So, is the “True Detective” duo really set to remake the classic robber flick?


A Harrelson insider tells Gossip Cop the mag’s report is made up.

Once again, Life & Style gets busted.
