Hello :) Here’s a summary of everything I could find. Tom Hardy is extremely busy. ʕ•̫͡•ʔ
✵ Taboo wrapped in mid-June. See Tom’s message and crew photo here. Writer Steven Knight has seen the first 3 episodes of the BBC/FX co-production and he says, “It’s fantastic. It’s really good.“ Check out the trailer and the @sonofhorace1814 Instagram. Air date: S.Knight suggested October. BBC One says 2017. We’ll have to wait and see but fingers crossed for this autumn!
✵ Dunkirk is currently filming in Urk, Netherlands. It was confirmed by one of the costume dept. that Tom is playing a pilot. So there’s likely to be a fair amount of green screen work for him. No character name or sighting in costume yet. (But there are Cillian Murphy set pics, and lots of Harry Styles everywhere. :) A couple of night shoots and a day shoot will also take place in Dorset at the end of July, around Weymouth Harbour and Swanage (remember the vintage railway station in Hyundai Card ‘Travel’?) Release (US&UK): 21 July 2017. Teaser may appear with Suicide Squad on Aug. 5.
✵ Projects in development (announced)
• Splinter Cell (Sam Fisher; possibly 2017)
• Cicero (Al Capone)
• Rocketman (Elton John; in financing limbo?)
• Samarkand (British SAS veteran; Greg Williams dir.)
• The True American (Mark Stroman; Kathryn Bigelow, dir.)
• Unreasonable Behaviour (Don McCullin)
• 100 Bullets (producing, possibly starring)
• Untitled Outlaw Biker Project
• Untitled Animal Poaching Project (x) (x)
• Untitled Animal Trafficking Project (x) (x)
✵ Assume there are many more unannounced projects percolating. For example, Steven Knight mentioned “a script that I want to direct that would star [Tom]. It will be a longer shoot than 10 days, which is what we did Locke in. This will be a more conventional film…” (x)
Have I missed anything?
p.s. Thanks, anon, for the good question. :) I’m rather worried about this blog, actually, so I’ve opened an Instagram backup. If you are over there, please do follow! I’ll be posting some unique content. www.instagram.com/tomhardyvariations/
