Back in October 2016 it was revealed that Tom Hardy had signed on to play Al Capone in the movie Chasing Fonzo. The movie starts shooting in New Orleans next week and to mark the occasion Hardy has posted the first image of him on the set on Instagram.
The movie ‘will follow Capone at age 47, after he spent several years in prison and has returned to rule Chicago as a ruthless businessman following his life as a mob boss. It will also follow his struggle with dementia, which eventually killed him following his near decade of imprisonment.’
Alongside Hardy, Linda Cardellini, Matt Dillon, Kyle MacLachlan, and Kathrine Narducci are also due to star. Josh Trank (Fantastic Four, Chronicle) will direct from his own screenplay.
