Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy to Play Bootleggers in Prohibition-Era Drama

Let's have a completely legal toast to new Prohibition-era thriller The Wettest County in the World. Nick Cave adapted the screenplay for the film based on Matt Bondurant's critically acclaimed historical novel of the same name about a family of moonshiners and their crimes. There's more: Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy have signed on to do the bootlegging. If this film's anything like a certain television drama we know set in the same period, maybe we'll even see them naked!
