McG fought for Tom Hardy in This Means War role

This Means War director McG has revealed how he fought to make sure that Tom Hardy was involved in the movie, as he believed that Tom would bring that something special to the role. McG claims that the studio questioned him on casting Tom Hardy but once he explained his reasons, the studio let him run with it.

McG explained, “I have casting directors that I trust completely. They turn me on to everybody early and they said you have got to look at this guy, Tom Hardy, and I did. And then once I met him I fought for him. And there wasn’t too much blowback from the studio, but there was a little bit where they said, ‘Why this guy?’ And I said, ‘Because he’s special. And it’s going to blow up. And he’s going to be exciting. And people are going to be talking about him’.”
 
He added, “So I’m very, very pleased we’ve got Tom. And he and Chris would jockey for the alpha lead position and I think that’s what makes the film special.” This Means War, which stars Tom Hardy, Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon, is currently out in the US and is set to be released in the UK on March 2.
