Bootlegging was a dirty, dangerous business and John Hillcoat's upcoming "Lawless" certainly doesn't shy away from the less glamorous aspects of the gig, and it certainly helps to tell the story when you've got an ace cast at your disposal.

For fans of Australian helmer John Hillcoat, it’s been a long wait since his last film, the adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's novel “The Road” in 2009. However, it looks like patience has paid off with his latest film, “Lawless,” which tells the tale of the Depression-era Bondurant brothers whose successful bootlegging operation in Franklin County, Virginia is soon threatened by authorities who are looking to cut their profits. Based on the novel “The Wettest County In the World” (which the film was originally titled), written by Matt Bondurant—grandson of one of the main characters in the novel—"Lawless," penned by famed musician and screenwriter Nick Cave, had its world premiere at Cannes last weekend. The film was received with a significant amount of praise, with our own writer saying “as far as top-tier storytelling goes, it doesn't get much better than this.”

In the days before Andrew Garfield was Peter Parker or Eduardo Saverin , the actor made a name for himself as a blue collar worker trying to hide a dark past in John Crowley's excellent debut "Boy A.". Years later, the actor is now on the brink of stardom but Brit helmer Crowley, a stage veteran behind the likes of "The Pillowman" and Hugh Jackman/Daniel Craig Broadway hit "A Steady Rain," as well as the Michael Caine-starring "Is Anybody There" hasn't quite skyrocketed in the same way. However he's currently shooting a tantalizing-sounding thriller starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall, and he's now set to team two major talents for literary adaptation that's more than a little promising

After breaking out with his acting debut in "After School," Ezra Miller reaffirmed his talent to the film world last year with Lynne Ramsey's "We Need To Talk About Kevin" where he went toe-to-toe with Tilda Swinton. While he was briefly linked to the failed blockbuster "Akira" project, Miller continues to make interesting choices, now lining up a starring role in an adaptation of Gustave Flaubert's "Madame Bovary" opposite Mia Wasikowska, with Paul Giamatti also confirmed.

After a very long wait, we finally got the trailer for John Hillcoat's "Lawless" a couple of days ago, and while it was a bit more conventional that we were expecting, it should be remembered that trailers for Hillcoat's films have never done them justice in the slightest, and with the cast he's got lined up here, there's a strong reason why this remains very high on our Must See List for 2012.

The anticipation for John Hillcoat's "Lawless" -- formerly known as "The Wettest County In The World" and then just "The Wettest County" -- has been nearly unbearable. Going through a few release date shifts, and the aforementioned title change, fans eager for the film got a great boost of good news when it was announced last week that the film landed a coveted In Competition slot at the Cannes Film Festival. What at first seemed like The Weinstein Company moving around and tinkering with a movie they didn't know what to do with, instead looks like the studio positioning the film for the best rollout possible.

Oh boy, another musty dusty literary adaptation? Even with our girl Mia Wasikowska (who is in danger to becoming the young go-to girl for period movies with "Jane Eyre" and "Albert Nobbs" under her belt), we can't say we're overly excited. Though, this film could turn out to be something a bit different.

While omnibus projects generally tend to be hit and miss affairs, they are intriguing in that they usually give directors a chance to try something they wouldn't or couldn't normally do in a feature, as well as exercise their skills within the tighter constraints of the format. Or in the case of "The Turning," it will allow a couple of actresses the chance to get their feet wet behind the camera.
