A couple of weeks ago we had the trailer for Lawless, which debuts at the Cannes Film Festival ahead of release later this year. And to go alongside the film’s premiere, a set of character posters have been released via Huffpo, showing off Tom Hardy, Shia Labeouf, Jessica Chastain and more’s 1930s gangster style look.
Directed by John Hillcoat from a script by him and Proposition cohort Nick Cave, the movie is based on Matt Bodurant’s book about the author’s grandfather and two great-uncles, who were part of a fierce criminal gang at the centre of the US’s moonshine trade during prohibition. The story also follows a writer named Sherwood Anderson, who is on the trail of the bootlegging gang. The film has a great cast, with Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain, and Mia Wasikowska onboard. It’ll hit UK cinemas on August 31st.
