Tom Hardy is the most wanted man in Hollywood, everyone wants a piece of him. Now we receive news that he has joined another high profile film. Hardy will be joining Shia LaBeouf in director John Hillcoat’s upcoming movie, The Wettest Country In The World. The film will tell the story of three brothers who run a bootlegging gang during Prohibition. It will be based on the novel of the same name, which is based on a true story. Other names that have been tied to the film are Ryan Gosling, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Dano, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon although none are confirmed at this time.
This is pretty good news. Hillcoat is a great director who may have made some mistakes with The Road, but showed us his true talent with The Proposition. And in front of the camera, LaBeouf and Hardy will be great together, both are extremely talented young actors who usually manage to entertain. There are also heavy rumors that Ryan Gosling, another talented individual, will take the role of the third brother. So imagine that, Gosling, LaBeouf and Hardy in a John Hillcoat film. Sounds good to me.
