Since his performance in 2010's Inception, British actor Tom Hardy has been appearing non-stop in a variety of roles: A MMA fighting sibling in Warrior; a British spy in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; the villainous (and hard to understand) Bane in the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises; and yet another role as a spy in the upcoming comedy This Means War. With Hardy already slated to play Max Rockatansky in the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road (shooting this April), the actor is also lining up a trilogy of movies to follow.
According to The Wrap, Hardy is attached to star as Al Capone in the gangster trilogy Cicero for Harry Potter director David Yates after being mentioned as a possibility last year. The movies will track Capone's rise and fall from the slums of Brooklyn to being one of the top mobsters in Prohibition-era Chicago. more on Cicero; Hunger Games actress heads into the future >> Posted 01.13.12 by Ryan
