Ryan Gosling and Shia LaBeouf attached to THE WETTEST COUNTY IN THE WORLD

Gosling and LaBeouf

In a recent interview for his new film THE ROAD, director John Hillcoat spilled the beans on his next project THE WETTEST COUNTY IN THE WORLD, said to involve "west Virginia, moonshine, backwoods, and Prohibition." The film is written by musician-turned-screenwriter Nick Cave, who wrote the very underrated western film THE PROPOSITION. Not much more is known about the plot at this point, but Hillcoat did give a little insight into the casting of THE WETTEST COUNTY.

According to the director, Ryan Gosling (HALF NELSON, THE NOTEBOOK) and Shia LaBeouf (TRANSFORMERS, INDIANA JONES) are currently attached to star in the film. Hillcoat did not reveal much else, saying that he "shouldn’t really talk about it cause it’s in the middle of all sorts of stuff."

The idea of a film in this setting, written by Nick Cave, starring two of the most talented young actors of this generation (Gosling being one of my favorites in general) gets me, shall we say, more than a little excited!

About James Wallace

A / S / L? 25 / M / Dallas! My life began on December 29th, 1984 as I was forged from a fiery pit deep in Mount Doom, in a very nice upscale area of Mordor. I was then taken across the galaxy to live on a farm in the desert with my aunt and uncle (shout out to my kin folk on Tatooine). That is until tragedy struck and they passed away from being murdered. Left with only hopes, dreams and a passion for magic, I decided to pursue my life long dream of getting a formal education. Succeeding in my dream, I am a recent graduate of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, in which I earned a bachelor’s degree in Magic Arts & Science. I now reside on the beautiful Isla Nublar, in the very pleasant suburb of Jurassic Park: Site 2. I am accompanied by my lovely paleontologist fiance, our two adopted children and hundreds of dinosaurs. In my free time I enjoy recovering lost artifacts and putting them in their rightful place…a museum! I also enjoy traveling back in time with my kooky, older but wiser best friend, hunting killer shark, finding replicants, busting ghosts, and riding bikes with my homeboy Extra T. My pet peeves are species that think they can get all in your face, implant their views into you and then just use you only to get rid of you and all your other space marine friends. I am also a huge supporter of equal rights for humans and the fight to oppose the fascist government Skynet.
