ComingSoon.net just got off the phone with Australian filmmaker John Hillcoat, talking about his Prohibitian-era crime-thriller Lawless, which comes out on DVD and Blu-ray on November 27. The movie stars Shia LaBeouf as the youngest of the Bondurant Brothers, a Virginia-based family of moonshiners who were trying to stay one step ahead of the law.

Back in May, when the movie premiered at Cannes, and again in August for the movie's release, there was talk of Hillcoat and LaBeouf reuniting for the police thriller Triple Nine, but it's looking like the actor's busy schedule may prevent the two from doing that project together.

This is what Hillcoat just told us when we asked about the project:

"I don't think it's going to be with Shia after all his schedule thing, but it's a huge ensemble, so it's all in relation to balancing people's dates so that is still being worked out actually. I do want to work with Shia again on something if this one doesn't work out. and I've been offered to do this contemporary urban kind of thriller, so we'll see. Ensembles are really tricky because of the balance of availability and schedules and all that."

Look for the rest of our interview, specifically about Lawless, sometime next week.
