Watch Shia LaBeouf act like a gangster in ‘Lawless’

Posted on July 7, 2012 by

The official trailer for the new American gangster drama ‘Lawless’ is out and it looks totally wicked.

Set in Virginia during the Depression-era, the film is based on the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers (played by Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy), two bootlegging siblings who are threatened by authorities who want a cut of their profits.

While I see a couple of parallels between this flick and ‘Gangster Squad‘, it’ll definitely be interesting to see LaBeouf acting in something a little more different than the Transformers movies.  I can’t wait to see him broaden his acting horizons!

Set to release on August 29, the film directed by John Hillcoat also features a star-studded cast. Already receiving positive reviews from the Cannes Film Festival, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clare, Gary Oldman and Mia Wasikowska also star in the movie.
