Tom Hardy and Gary Oldman obviously didn’t have enough of each on The Dark Knight Rises set (not that they had a vast amount of screen time together), as they’ve gotten back together for Child 44. Now the first images from the film have arrived, via RopesOfSilicon, featuring Hardy, Oldman and Noomi Rapace.
Based on Tom Rob Smith’s novel, with Safe House helmer Daniel Espinosa directing, the Soviet Union set thriller is about a military police officer named Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy) who has to investigate a string of brutal child murders that took place during the Stalin era. As he begins to dig further and further into the case, he realises that his government is keeping a sharp eye on every move he makes, and refuses to admit that the killings are actually happening.
Oldman is the head of police, who has problems with what Hardy is doing, while Rapace, who’s in the image below, is Tom’s wife.
Vincent Cassel, Joel Kinnaman, Jason Clarke and Paddy Considine also star. It’ll be in cinemas next year.
