New Lawless Pictures Smuggled In
Putting bootlegging to asses

29 June 2012  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

John Hillcoat's new crime thriller Lawless has a resolutely old-school feel to it and some fresh twists. It's a bloody bootlegging tale with a charismatic cast and more spent rounds than Oliver Reed's bar tab. But as these new pictures show, the gangster-and-grog storyline is underpinned by some wardrobe choices that might have Cagney and Robinson shaking their heads quizzically.

You never saw Cody Jarrett in a cardie. Still, Tom Hardy's dapper liquor lubber pulls it off effortlessly. He plays one of the Bondurant brothers, siblings with Shia LeBeouf and Jason Clarke in a family of bootleggers who haunt the woods and creeks of Prohibition-era Virginia. Nick Cave's adaptation of Matt Bondurant's 2008 novel The Wettest County In The World.

Empire Magazine's Bourne Legacy Cover

These magnificently moody imagines are currently adorning Empire's August issue, along with in-depth chats with writer Cave and director Hillcoat. It's onsale now (and completely legal) in all good newsagents. Lawless is out on September 7.
