Lawless

Even though Gangster Squad won't be hitting theaters this year, we'll still get some good crime drama, albeit in a different time period, from John Hillcoat's Lawless. In the film, Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy and Jason Clarke as the Bondurant Brothers, three bootlegging brothers in Virginia, who have to fend off the cops (like Guy Pearce) and a growing mob empire. Now two new featurettes have popped up going behind the scenes of the film, mostly with LaBeouf and author Matt Bondurant (who wrote the book, The Wettest County in the World on which the film is based), talking about the story and real history behind it.

Watch these two new featurettes for John Hillcoat's Lawless, originally from Apple and Yahoo:

John Hillcoat (The Road, The Proposition) is directing Lawless from a screenplay 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 (from Chronicle) also appear in this. The Weinstein Company first premiered the film at the Cannes Film Festival and is releasing Lawless on August 29th this month.

In the Bondurants' world, being shot doesn't always mean dying. (I read the book).
