Tom Hardy is a busy man, but it seems he’s found a bit of a window in his schedule as he’s signed up to go a bit Jason Statham in the movie Locke, which is due to start shooting later this month, according to THR.
The film is written and directed by Steven Knight, who’s perhaps best known for his screenplays for Eastern Promises and Dirty Pretty Things, and who recently completed his directorial debut, Hummingbird.
According to a release, ‘Locke is the story of one man’s life unraveling in a tension-fuelled ninety minute race against time. Ivan Locke has the perfect family, his dream job, and tomorrow should be the crowning moment of his career. But one phone call will force him to make a decision that will put it all on the line.’
Steven Knight commented, “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.”
