It’s been months since news broke that Matthew McConaughey would be headlining a Yellowstone spinoff, but the veteran actor still hasn’t struck a deal. Reportedly asking for $2.5 million an episode, the Texas native is getting antsy as negotiations drag on. “Matthew can’t book movie work that is going to potentially overlap with the show,” an insider exclusively tells Life & Style. “But he still doesn’t have clarity on when exactly this job would even start. He wants to make the deal — it’s become this incredibly drawn-out process.”
“No deal has ever taken this long for Matthew,” says the insider. “Especially after he won his Oscar, getting folks to meet his asking price has been a breeze.” But there may be another reason he might consider walking: Taylor Sheridan’s behind-the-scenes drama. “Taylor’s got a reputation for being a jerk with a ‘God complex.’ Matthew doesn’t particularly like behind-the-scenes drama.”
