    Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce & Mia Wasikowska Join John Hillcoat's 'The Wettest County'

    While we may weep for what could have been of John Hillcoat's original incarnation of "The Wettest County" that fell apart last year and featured Michael Shannon, Ryan Gosling, Paul Dano, Amy Adams and Scarlett Johansson, the cast that has come together for the revamped film is equally first rate.
