Jessica Chastain Needs a Job in a New Clip from John Hillcoat’s Lawless

Tom Hardy and Jessica Chastain in Lawless (2012) Movie Image

Jessica Chastain is a hot-to-trot city girl transplanted to the countryside where she’s looking for a job and Tom Hardy is the man who has that job. It looks like a meet-cute moment, but then again, Tom Hardy’s character might just whip out a gun and shoot her or something. Dude doesn’t look like he does meet-cutes. (Hardy also looks like he was shuffling between the sets of “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Lawless”; he looks huge.) Check out another clip from John Hillcoat’s Prohibition-era gangster flick “Lawless”, formerly “The Wettest County”.

The true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. Inspired by true-life tales of author Matt Bondurant’s family in his novel “The Wettest County In The World,” the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation’s most notorious crime wave.

Also starring Shia Labeouf, Jason Clarke, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Dane Dehaan, Mia Wasikowska, Noah Taylor, and Lew Temple.

Filling that job opening August 31, 2012.
