'The Wettest County', Starring Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy, Set for April 20, 2012

The Collider:
The Weinstein Company has set John Hillcoat‘s The Wettest County for April 20, 2012. Nick Cave (The Proposition) wrote the script based Matt Bondourant‘s novel about two brothers (played by Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy) who become bootleggers in the South during Prohibition. In addition to LaBeouf and Hardy, the outstanding cast also includes Mia Wasikowska, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, Dane DeHaan, and Jessica Chastain. It looked like TWC would be setting the movie up for an awards run, but the studio already has its line-up set with The Artist, The Iron Lady, and My Week with Marilyn. That doesn’t mean that Wettest County is bad, but it may not be appealing to Academy voters. Neither were Hillcoat’s previous films, The Proposition and The Road.

Hit the jump for Wettest County‘s competition on April 20, 2012, and for a synopsis of Bondourant’s novel.

This sound good and it's got Tom Hardy in it. I like Shia too but these days to me Tom Hardy is the bigger draw.
