Rejoice John Hillcoat and Nick Cave fans! The once dismal prospects for their latest collaboration -- the prohibition era film 'The Wettest County in the World' -- has found new life.

Things started off well enough in October of 2009. Hillcoat and Cave had put together a project that had the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Ryan Gosling, Shia LaBeouf, Paul Dano and Michael Shannon circling it. A few months later, everything fell apart -- both for the film and Hillcoat's production company, and the '20s project was nothing but dust in the wind.

But now it looks like things are turning around. 'Wettest County' is back on track, LaBeouf is still around, and it looks like he's got a co-star in Tom Hardy ('Inception').
