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.

It has been a long time since we heard anything about Nick Cave's "The Death Of Bunny Munro," so we'll bring you back up to speed. First conceived as a script, when Cave couldn't get it produced he turned the story into a novel that is on bookshelves now. But in a little bit of an ironic twist, in 2009 it was reported that Cave's regular collaborator John Hillcoat ("The Road," "The Proposition," "The Wettest County") was going to adapt it for British televison. Then in the summer of 2010 Cave revealed that Ray Winstone was interested in the lead role, and then...nothing since. But the hope is still alive.
