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.
This is just further evidence of how Ja Rule is such a poser, and is the most ungangster guy. There’s one thing about going to jail for murder (not that we condone that) or dealing drugs – but tax evasion?
Ja Rule got tacked on another 28 months in prison for tax evasion for failing to file tax returns with the IRS for more than $1.1 million in taxes. Ja Rule’s lawyer told MTV News, ”We were all very concerned about what the potentials were, and we think that the outcome was very fair and that the court took him into account as an individual, and we appreciate that tremendously,” she said.
Ja Rule is already serving time for attempted gun possession stemming from a 2007 arrest. This guy is getting what he deserved. Don’t screw around with guns and pay your taxes.
For once, it appears that Lindsay Lohan is being fought over to appear in a film. TMZ reports that Victoria Gotti herself has handpicked Lohan to play her in an upcoming film about her father and notorious gangster John Gotti.
Lohan even beat out Blake Lively and Sienna Miller for her new role as Victoria Gotti. Who would have thought this day would come? I’m personally so happy for her!
Sources close to the production tell TMZ that producers were considering both Blake and Sienna for the role, but John Gotti’s famously blonde daughter wasn’t having it, insisting Lindsay get the role instead. This isn’t surprising, apparently, as according to sources Victoria is a good friend of the Lohan family and often spends time with them on Long Island. An inside job? Maybe. But Lohan should take what she can get.
Lindsay is currently in L.A. auditioning for “Superman,” but TMZ is told she already has a plane ticket back to NYC for April 12th to close the Gotti deal for good.
I think this merrits celebration. It will be her first movie role since her cameo in Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Machete’ as a meth-addicted daughter turned nun, so I’m hoping this role will cause her to be taken a little more seriously. I’ve always been a huge Lohan fan, so I’m rooting for her. It’s time to move on up!
