Director John Hillcoat and rock musician Nick Cave have teamed up for the third time in the new movie Lawless.
Cave is best known as a musician, but one with talents in writing and film scoring. He wrote the screenplay for Lawless, adapting it from a 2008 non-fiction account of Depression-era moonshiners, The Wettest County In The World.
He wrote music for Hillcoat's film adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy's post-apocalyptic novel The Road (2009), and did both music and the screenplay for Hillcoat's breakthrough feature, the Australian outlaw saga The Proposition (2005).
Hillcoat says: "We work very well together, we enjoy working together. It's all about that collaboration. When we finish one project, we immediately start working on the next."
