Upcoming Matthew McConaughey Movie About Soccer Team Heading To China Has Been Scrapped Over ‘Disturbing Allegations’

ytsfreeSeptember 15, 2022

Although Matthew McConaughey was heard reprising Buster Moon late last year in Sing 2, we haven’t seen the actor in a live-action movie since 2019’s The Gentlemen, where he teamed with director Guy Ritchie. Well, that wait is about to get longer, as it’s been reported that McConaughey’s upcoming movie about a soccer team that went to China has been scrapped due to “disturbing allegations.”

Skydance Media has pulled the plug on Dallas Sting, a sports feature project based on true events being directed by The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s Kari Skogland. Matthew McConaughey was set to play Bill Kinder, the coach of a Dallas-based girls soccer team that traveled to China in 1984 and beat some of the world’s best women’s teams, which included emerging victorious over Italy in the championship game. Despite Dallas Sting being only six weeks away from beginning principal photography, THR shared that Skydance and producers pulled the plug on it after being alerted about the aforementioned allegations concerning aspects of this “true story.”
