Tom Hardy & Shia LaBeouf in First Trailer for Crime Drama 'Lawless'
We just got our first official photo of Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke as bootlegging brothers in the period crime drama Lawless from director John Hillcoat (The Road, The Proposition), and lo and behold a trailer has just shown up as well. Brazen and fearless, three young rebel brothers helped build the American Dream in this exuberant tale of what was to become crime’s first major gold rush. I could do without the quick black and white freeze frames, but all of the performances look great including supporting turns from Gary Oldman, Jessica Chastain, Guy Pearce and Mia Wasikowska. Watch!
Watch the first official trailer for John Hillcoat's Lawless, originally in high def on Yahoo:
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 (of Chronicle) also star in the film which The Weinstein Company will bring to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival before it goes to theaters on August 31st this year.
