[Exclusive] John Hillcoat on The Death of Bunny Munro and The Wettest County in The World

Yesterday I had the great opportunity of speaking to director John Hillcoat to discuss his latest film The Road. During this period John was nice enough to confirm casting on The Wettest County in The World and that The Death of Bunny Munro will most likely be made into a television series.

I know you’re circling a few projects right now, can you give a few updates?

John Hillcoat: Well, one touchwood that’s most likely to…

The Wettest County?

John Hillcoat: Yeah it’s west Virginia, moonshine, backwoods, and Prohibition. Nick Cave has written the script and we’ve got a phenomenal cast. Hopefully, but – it’s really tough out there.

Who’s attached to that?

John Hillcoat: Um… Ryan Gosling and Shia LaBeouf. But yeah, I shouldn’t really talk about it cause it’s in the middle of all sorts of stuff.

And what about The Death of Bunny Munro?

John Hillcoat: We’re going to turn that into television. We’re going to try and wake up the BBC and, or, actually Channel 4. We’re trying to say to British television,”look at HBO, I mean what the hell are you doing?”

And are you involved with the remake of La bonne année?

John Hillcoat: No… That’s very misleading, all that stuff.

Make sure to check back later this month for the full interview.
