Guy Pearce & Gary Oldman Join The Wettest County

TheHollywoodReporter has the news that Guy Pearce (L.A. Confidential, Animal Kingdom) and Gary Oldman have joined John Hillcoat's The Wettest County. The prohabtion era thriller already has some up-and-comers lined up including Tom Hardy (Inception, Dark Knight Rises), Jessica Chastain (The Debt) and Shia LaBeouf. The source also confirms that Mia Wasikowska (Defiance, Alice In Wonderland) and Jason Clarke (Public Enemies) are on board. The film is based on true story of the Bondurant boys, bootlegging siblings who take the law into their own hands in Prohibition-era Virginia while making a run for the American Dream. Musician Nick Cave who adapted the script will also score the film's music as he did for Hillcoat's Proposition which he also wrote.
