Published Apr 25, 2012Prolific film score duo Nick Cave and Warren Ellis most recently informed the music world that they would be soundtracking a film about the West Memphis Three. But before we get to hear and see that, they have another film project on the horizon, and this one stars the extremely versatile actor Shia LaBeouf.
Along with the Beef, the film stars Gary Oldman and Guy Pearce, and is a film adaptation of Matt Bondurant's novel The Wettest Country in the World. The movie, titled Lawless, will be directed by John Hillcoat, who previously collaborated with Cave and Ellis on The Proposition and The Road.
A trailer for Lawless is available below. Unfortunately, what's not available is any news on when that rumoured new album from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds will drop.
Lawless will hit theatres on August 31.
UPDATE: As an obviously annoyed commenter has pointed out, Nick Cave also penned the screenplay, something that IMBD confirms.
