It has been reported that The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy has signed up to star in the movie Locke. Tom has become a very in demand actor in recent years and it shows no sign of slowing down, with the announcement of his involvement in Locke.
Shoebox Films, Paul Webster revealed his joy at bagging Hardy, saying, “Tom Hardy and Steve Knight are two of the most exciting talents working today so Guy and I are really excited to be able team up with them and our friends at IM Global on this unique project.”
Meanwhile, director Steve Knight admitted that he is excited by the project, adding, “I’m really excited to be working with Tom Hardy on an innovative piece of filmmaking which will exercise his immense talent to the full. That IM Global are coming with us on this literal and metaphorical journey is testament to their creative ambition.”
Locke adds to a rather busy schedule that Tom Hardy already has. He has only recently completed filming the movie Mad Max: Fury Road and he is also set to star in Child 44, Everest and Animal Rescue, as well as having a number of other projects in development.
However, Locke is expected to begin production in a few weeks time, with the view to getting the film released sometime in 2014.
