Tom Hardy is certainly a busy man with a slate full of movies. Last year we saw him in the excellent Locke and the really quite good The Drop. He’s currently finishing his work on The Revenant with Leonardo Di Caprio. After that he needs to promote Mad Max – he’s going to be so busy with Mad Max that he has dropped out of Suicide Squad. He has plans for a sort of rollicking pirate rogue thing that he’s developing for television. And yet he has still managed to squeeze Child 44 in to his busy schedule.
Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace, and Vincent Cassel in a serial killer thriller set in the Soviet Union in the 1950s, with a script by Richard Price (Sea of Love, The Color of Money)? I’m in.
