There seems to be some tension brewing in the world of Hollywood as Matthew McConaughey allegedly gets antsy about putting his movie career on hold.
According to a source who spilled the beans to the National Enquirer, Matthew is demanding a massive paycheque to appear as the new face of the popular TV series, Yellowstone. The insider revealed that Matthew and his team firmly believe that he is the key to the success of the proposed new spin-off in place of Kevin Costner. However, it seems that the series producers are not as convinced and are hesitant to sign off on the Interstellar actor's exorbitant asking price of $2.
"Paramount is dragging its feet on his asking price, and there's a real possibility Matthew will just move on," another source revealed. It appears that negotiations for the show have hit a snag. RadarOnline.com reported that Kevin Costner's negotiations fell through when the bosses failed to meet the actor's scheduling demands, resulting in the A-lister walking away from the show altogether. Now, it seems that Matthew is getting restless about the whole situation, especially with the potential conflicts it may cause with his movie career.
However, Yellowstone is seen as a monolith unto itself, and producers are now questioning whether it is worth meeting Matthew's demands. It looks like the ball is now in Paramount's court, and they will have to make a tough decision. Will they meet Matthew's financial expectations and secure the star as the new face of Yellowstone? Or will they risk losing one of Hollywood's most sought-after actors? Only time will tell.
