Check out ‘Dark Knight Rises’ star Tom Hardy in ‘Lawless’ trailer
Shia LaBouf and Tom Hardy are a pair of bootlegging brothers in Prohibition America in their film “Lawless.” The first trailer debuted yesterday and highlights Hardy, the villain in “The Dark Knight Rises.”
The film follows the exploits of the Bondurant brothers, a pair of bootleggers who find themselves threatened by the crooked Southern authorities who want a share of their profits. Nick Cave wrote the screenplay, adapting the novel The Wettest Country In The World by Matt Bondurant.
The trailer revealed plenty of gun fights and a great supporting cast including fellow “Rises” star Gary Oldman.
“Lawless” also stars Guy Pearce, who has signed on for “Iron Man 3” and Jessica Chastain, who is rumored to be in talks to join the Iron Man film as well. The film is directed by John Hillcoat (“The Road”) and produced by The Weinstein Company.
Hardy plays the villain, Bane, in “The Dark Knight Rises,” which will conclude a trilogy of Batman films by director Christopher Nolan and starred Christian Bale.
“Lawless” is set to come to theaters on August 31, 2012.
