Christmas has come early for John Hillcoat. He was all frownies last year when funding dropped out for his drama The Wettest County In The World. Turns out, he can get wet after all.
The project is now back on with Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy up for the lead roles. Originally, LaBeouf, Ryan Gosling, Michael Shannon, and Amy Adams were on board last year to play the family of criminal bootleggers. Since then, Michael Shannon has dropped out and there’s no update on the other two. Does this mean we won’t get to see Christian Bale fight a bear? (LA Times)
