The latest project of Bad Seeds frontman Nick Cave has leaked online – a trailer for the John Hillcoat-directed ‘Lawless’.
Based on the novel The Wettest County in the World by Matt Bondurant, the film features turns by such big names as Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Guy Pearce. Cave has composed the soundtrack along with his long-time Bad Seeds and Grinderman companion, Warren Ellis and is the third film that the two men have worked with Hillcoat on – the previous being 2005′s The Proposition and the 2009 Cormack McCarthy adaptation of The Road.
Lawless tells the story of three brothers who own an alcohol bootlegging business in Prohibition-era America, a true tale which is taken from the life of Bondurant’s Grandfather and Great uncles.
