Tom Hardy talks playing Al Capone

Tom Hardy has spoken to the Daily Mail 's Baz Bamigboye about his upcoming role as Al Capone in Cicero .

Hardy will play the infamous gangster after he has finished shooting Mad Max: Fury Road .

He told Bamigboye: "I’ve been working with Warner Bros, watching their gangster films — the ones with James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and Edward G. Robinson," naming The Petrified Forest , The Public Enemy and Little Caesar as examples.

"It’s interesting to get them, and a bit of Capone, into the bloodstream… The idea isn’t to remake those films but to get a flavour of them as we explore Capone’s career as a racketeer."

On the status of the movie (which is set to be directed by Harry Potter 's David Yates), Hardy added: "The idea at the moment is of doing a trilogy of films, but nothing is set. Everyone is just talking and exploring."

Tom Hardy will next be seen in This Means War , before appearing as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises (you may have heard us mention that one before).
