Shia LaBeouf Takes Center Stage in New Still Images from John Hillcoat's Lawless
07.02.12 by BJSprecher
Several new still images from director John Hillcoat's (The Road) upcoming movie, Lawless, appeared in the most recent issue of Empire and they have now been made available for viewing online. The images primarily feature Shia LaBeouf as Jack Bondurant — one-third of a trio of real-life bootlegging brothers who defied Prohibition in rural Virginia during the Great Depression — but we also get a fresh look at Tom Hardy as Jack's brother, Forrest, Mia Wasikowska as Jack's love interest, Bertha Minnix, and Academy Award-winner Gary Oldman as the gangster Floyd Banner.
Lawless is based on Matt Bondurant's novel The Wettest County in the World. The screenplay was written by Nick Cave (The Proposition), who also provided the music for the movie. The cast also includes Jason Clarke as Howard Bondurant, Jessica Chastain as Forrest's love interest, the mysterious Maggie, and Guy Pearce as Charles Rakes, the lawman gunning for the Bondurants.
