How could Hollywood not make a movie about the drug dealer known as White Boy Rick? Richard Wershe Jr. was barely a teenager when he began trafficking cocaine and only 14 when he became an FBI informant, the youngest in history.
His story now hits the big screen starring Richie Merritt as White Boy Rick and Matthew McConaughey as his violent, streetwise father. Filled with typical 1980s flavor and fashion, this atypical gangster story takes place in Detroit and looks set to shine a light on one of America’s most unbelievable but true crime tales.
Watch the trailer of White Boy Rick below:
