Still Life: Hardy, LaBeouf and Clarke Are Bootleggin’ Brothers
Still Life is a new category here on Filmophilia where we bring you the best, worst and the unexplainable of stills and posters for your enjoyment. Go on, enjoy it!
A new still from the upcoming ‘Lawless‘ just hit the webs, and it gives us a gritty, good look at stars Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke in their roles as the Bondurant brothers. The film takes place in Prohibition-era Virginia and tells the true story of the Bondurant boys, bootlegging siblings who take the law into their own hands while making a run for the American Dream. They also have to deal with corrupt authorities who want a cut of their profit.
Based on the book, ‘The Wettest Country in the World’ by Matt Bondurant (grandson of one of the Bondurant brothers), the film will also star Guy Pearce, the ever-beautiful Jessica Chastain, Gary Oldman as well as relative newcomer Dane DeHaan, who wow-ed audiences just months ago in ‘Chronicle’.
The film is directed by John Hillcoat, who brought us the bleak-as-all-hell The Roadwhile having also directed The Propositionfrom a script by badass-musician Nick Cave. Why is that relevant? Because Nick Cave wrote the script for ‘Lawless’, that’s why! Now sit your ass down and look forward to this movie!
