Lawless Trailer Arrives Online
Incredible cast get together for John Hillcoat's period gangster film.
Directed by John Hillcoat and written by Nick Cave, Lawless, an adaptation of Matt Bondurant’s novel, now has a trailer – and it looks superb.
Based on the bootlegging activities of the Bondurant brothers, played here by Tom Hardy, Jason Clarke and Shia LaBeouf, the film also boasts Gary Oldman as a slimy gangster, and Guy Pearce as a menacing federal agent. Promising action, drama and what seems to be a smartly realised period setting, we have a very good feeling about Hillcoat's latest film.
With Hardy, LaBeaouf, Clarke, Pearce and Oldman, as well as Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Noah Taylor, and Chronicle’s Dane DeHaan, this is about as close to a fantasy cast as you can get at the moment.
Lawless will be playing in an In Competition slot at the Cannes Film Festival, which runs between May 16 to 27, with an August 31 release planned for the US and UK .
