Tom Hardy May Join Harry Potter Director's Al Capone Movie
07.15.11 by REELZ
Now that the Harry Potter madness is coming to a close, what's next for director David Yates? Well, he's been developing an idea for an "origin story" (who isn't these days?) about famed Chicago gangster Al Capone. The current title is Cicero, and Vulture reports that Tom Hardy may be joining the project.
You might know Hardy from his strong ties to Christopher Nolan. Hardy appeared as a conman in the mind-bending sci-fi drama Inception, and he'll star as the super-intelligent, super-strong villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.
It's unclear whether or not Hardy would play Capone, but the project is apparently moving forward, based on a script written in the '70s by Walon Green, the screenwriter for The Wild Bunch.
