The Wettest County in the World MoviePlot:
"Based on the true story of Matt Bondurant's grandfather and two granduncles, The Wettest County in the World is a gripping tale of brotherhood, greed, and murder.
The story revolves around three brothers who find their bootlegging business under threat in Prohibition-era Franklin County, Virginia."

Here's the cast:
- Shia LaBeouf as Jack Bondurant, the youngest of the three brothers
- Tom Hardy as Forrest Bondurant
- Jason Clarke as Howard Bondurant
- Guy Pearce as Deputy Charley Rakes
- Gary Oldman as Floyd Banner, a gangster
- Mia Wasikowska as Bertha Minnix, a Mennonite preacher's daughter who is the love interest of Jack
- Dane DeHaan as Cricket, Jack's best friend

If the three main actors get along well this could be a great film. Each of them is talented, but need to see how they interact on the big screen.
