John Hillcoat‘s upcoming film Lawless, previously titled The Wettest County in the World, is slowly creeping up my most anticipated list for films to see by the end of the year.
The official Twitter channel for the film (@WettestCounty) released a new image that features stars Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy and Jason Clarke. The setting looks great and more importantly it looks like Shia may have returned to acting!
Clarke and Hardy are expected to perform on the top of their game, but Shia has been taking a pass as of late and I’m eager to see him with a role of this caliber.
John Hillcoat is no stranger to getting some phenomenal performances out of his actors. Just look at his work with Viggo Mortensen on The Road.
Check out the new image below and drop a comment with your feedback on the film. Are you eager to see it?
Lawless opens in theaters on August 31st, 2012.
