Lawless

As you may know, Nick Cave has a few ventures outside of the recording studio and his latest is as screenwriter for Lawless, the follow-up to his brutal western The Proposition (both directed by John Hillcoat):

LAWLESS is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In this epic gangster tale, 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.
Look for the film, which features a stellar cast of Tom Hardy (Bane in The Dark Knight Rises), Gary Oldman, Shia LaBeouf, Guy Pearce and Jessica Chastain, opens in the U.S. on Wednesday, August 29. Trailer for the film is below.

In addition, Nick Cave and musical partner in crime Warren Ellis also contributed to the soundtrack, which hits one day earlier (8/28) and is currently up for preorder via iTunes and in physical formats. Stream the new track "Burnin'" below.

Can't stand Shia LaBeouf. How does he still manage to get acting jobs?

The Proposition was pretty good. Kinda slow, but not a bad story for a musician. Looking forward to seeing this after I say the previews before Batman.

1:54 totally agree. Biggest little puta in the industry - trying so hard to get rid of his nerdness; it's pathetic.

And I totally agree with the both of you. Another annoying little kid that somehow, is somehow trying to be the tough guy. I guess those robberies and bar fights did you in well there, right?

The poster looks like a bad basic cable drama - like Covert Affairs of the west or something.

The director is one of the best newcomers out there (The Proposition, The Road). I'm interested.

I like it when people post their thoughts once and don't keep posting again and again as different people agreeing with what they posted at first. That is the sign of someone with woefully low self confidence, and the act will hereto be called "ipodism".

3:12 Hurry back to your barista post buddy. Off you go. Leave the posting to the 21+ crowd.

2:47 - Not really a newcomer as Ghosts Of The Civil Dead came out in 1988. But yes, all his movies have been great.

"The director is one of the best newcomers out there (The Proposition, The Road)."

The Road was terrible. Such an injustice to the book.

And I also don't buy into Shit TheBeef pretending to be tough guy. He's like 5'3".

3:12 - that's a strange variation of the "everyone is one person posting" mania. Check your levels, dude.

Nick Cave is still and always will be one of the alltime greats! Now put out a new album and play NYC!

LaBeouf. Why?

3:35 is exactly what 3:12 is talking about. Defensive.

11:36 - Nick Cave deserves respect for his work in The Birthday Party alone...not to mention seminal Bad Seeds albums like "The Firstborn Id Dead." Have you heard this music?
