Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke as Brothers in 'Lawless'
For those who aren't aware, the drama formerly known as The Wettest County in the World has since been titled Lawless, and while that's the same as a forthcoming Terrence Malick film, the director gave the okay for the production to take his title. Now we finally have an official first look at John Hillcoat's film about three brothers, played by Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and "The Chicago Code" star Jason Clarke, who created the big city gangsters. Brazen and fearless, these young rebel brothers helped build the American Dream in this exuberant tale of what was to become crime’s first major gold rush. Photo below!
John Hillcoat (The Road, The Proposition) is directing the Lawless from a script by Nick Cave which is based on Matt Bondurant's novel The Wettest County in the World. The film follows a bootlegging gang (Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke) in Depression-era Franklin County, Virginia, threatened by authorities who want a cut of their profits. Jessica Chastain, Gary Oldman, Mia Wasikowska, Guy Pearce, Noah Taylor and up and comer Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) also star in the film which The Weinstein Company will bring to the 2012 Venice Film Festival before it goes to theaters on August 31st this year.

Either Optimus Prime or Indiana Jones climbing out of a refrigerator.

Hardy will either be nominated for this or TDKR.

He's a great actor, but if you're talking about the Academy Awards then he will most likely be nominated for This Means War.

Shia LaBeouf is overrated as an actor, he will ruin this movie
Andrew Fischer on Apr 19, 2012
100% agree. By the way Tom Hardy isn't acting in that photo. You know he is thinking "#$@!, LaBeouf is going to ruin this movie for me. #$&@!"

actually, early screenings say that Labeouf gives a great performance, and its better than anything he has done

What's with all the LaBeouf hate? Yea transformers was terrible but has anyone seen A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints? He was brilliant. Everyones gotta eat...

Saw this in a prescreen late last year. Thought it was extremely well done. I generally don't like LeBeouf, but he did fantastic. Casting throughout is great.
