Ryan Gosling, Shia LaBeouf to journey to Wettest County?

Gosling-LaBeoufWhile doing an interview with the Jack Giroux from Atomic Popcorn.net about his newest film The Road, Australian director John Hillcoat was asked about his future projects.

And boy, did he talk!

Fans of Australian rocker Nick Cave can rejoice as the two leads for his script The Wettest County in the World have got stars’ names attached to them. Hillcoat said that Ryan Gosling and Shia LaBeouf were attached, but quickly added “But yeah, I shouldn’t really talk about it cause it’s in the middle of all sorts of stuff.” Which means that they’re still “in negotiations.”

The movie will be about “west Virginia, moonshine, backwoods, and Prohibition,” and if anyone else out there isn’t suddenly feeling nostalgic for “The Dukes of Hazzard” TV series, I will eat my hat.

Pre-production has not yet started.
