Yesterday we got to talk with one of our favorite filmmakers, John Hillcoat, about his prohibition-era gangster movie "Lawless," out on Blu-ray and DVD next week (more on that soon). We couldn't help but ask the director, who was previously responsible for the aborigines-versus-colonizers western "The Prohibition" and the post-apocalyptic fable "The Road," what was next. He told us about us upcoming crime epic "Triple Nine," his proposed remake of Jean-Pierre Melville's "Le Circle Rouge," and how he wants to do a science-fiction movie set in the distant future.

Cannes is one of the biggest markets, if not the biggest, for acquisitions in the film calendar, with hundreds of deals made, ranging from pre-sales for star-laden properties to distribution rights to terrible B-movies. This year, as with the unusually busy Sundance, has already been packed with deals, happily suggesting something of a renaissance in the independent film world. On top of the news that landed over the weekend that Rian Johnson's "Looper" heads up a pack of high-profile buys also including "Playing the Field," "Arabian Nights" and "The Iron Lady," another of our most anticipated films of the moment looks to have landed an American distributor.

At this point, we shouldn't have to explain to you why John Hillcoat's "The Wettest County" is already one of our most anticipated films of next year. We're just glad it's happening at all especially after it fell apart early last year just as lensing was about to begin. And now courtesy of fansite Shiantology (via /Film) we have concrete proof that yes, sweet Jesus, this thing is really happening.

While we may weep for what could have been of John Hillcoat's original incarnation of "The Wettest County" that fell apart last year and featured Michael Shannon, Ryan Gosling, Paul Dano, Amy Adams and Scarlett Johansson, the cast that has come together for the revamped film is equally first rate.

Things are certainly coming together on John Hillcoat's "The Wettest County In The World" and, frankly, it's all a bit surreal after the shocking and sudden demise of its first iteration. The latest name to now join the Nick Cave-scripted adaptation of Matt Bondurant's novel is newcomer Dane DeHaan who, like the recently linked Mia Wasikowska, broke out with a role on Rodrigo Garcia's exceptional HBO drama "In Treatment" but also has roles in the lesbian werewolf pic "Jack & Diane" and the campy HBO vampire show "True Blood" on the horizon.

On-The-Rise Australian Actress May Have To Choose Between Both Films If Schedules Don't WorkDear Internet. Please turn off so we can go to bed. Ok, we've done enough 2011 anticipated pieces to bore you silly, but if we were going to do a Most Anticipated piece on the films beginning production in 2011 -- don't worry we won't -- "The Road" director John Hillcoat's prohibition crime drama, "The Wettest County In The World," and Wentworth Miller's mysterious family drama, "Stoker" would both be near the top of that list.
