Tom Hardy has a super busy summer ahead of him with the release of The Dark Knight Rises, which is set to be the biggest movie of the year.
But that is not the only movie he has on the horizon as he is set to lead the cast in Lawless, formerly called The Wettest County in the World.
And this project couldn’t be as this crime/drama is a big screen adaptation of the novel by Matt Bondurant.
Set in the Depression-era Franklin County, Virginia, a bootlegging gang is threatened by authorities who want a cut of their profits.
Hardy is joined on he cast list by Shia LaBeouf. Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska while John Hillcoat is in the director’s chair.
Lawless is released later this year.
