Tom Hardy is set to star in a new Netflix film from Gangs Of London co-creator Gareth Evans.
The upcoming movie, titled Havoc, will see the actor take on the role of a detective who unravels a web of corruption in his city when rescuing a politician’s son.
The move comes after Evans signed an exclusive deal with the streaming platform to produce and direct several movies over the course of the next few years.
Previously, the pair have worked together on the horror-thriller Apostle, which led to Netflix approaching Evans, as they found him to be the perfect fit for the platform.
Filming will begin in June and will reportedly be shot in Wales.
2021 is going to be a big year for Hardy who will also be starring as Eddie Brock in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which is expected to be released on June 24.
Back in 2018, the actor revealed how he created the unusual voice for the alien symbiote Venom. Apparently, ‘Redman, Busta Rhymes, James Brown, as ingredients’ played a big part.
He told ScreenRant: “And I played with it. The fusion to create what you hear, which sounds nothing like them. But initially, that was the vibe, or the heartbeat, that I wanted to bring to it.
“Was the kind of bombastic, playful, dark, witty, clever, very edgy…honest. But with a powerful, familiar, friendly sound, which is palatable but will drop unexpectedly, like birds…do. That’s the truth.”
Previously, Hardy has also starred in the Al Capone biopic, appropriately titled Capone.
The film tells the story of ‘America’s most notorious gangster’, as he battles through neurosyphilis and dementia.
Currently, the movie is available to watch on Amazon Prime.
