Film star Tom Hardy has been made a CBE for services to drama by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.

The Mad Max and Venom actor is a friend of Princes William and Harry and was among the guests at Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle in May.

He was honoured by the Prince of Wales at a ceremony where author Ken Follett was also made a CBE and TV historian Lucy Worsley was appointed an OBE.

Businessman and philanthropist Lloyd Dorfman received a knighthood.

Hardy’s connections with royalty extend back to 2006, when he played Robert Dudley, Elizabeth I’s favourite, in TV’s The Virgin Queen.

It is also understood that he appeared with Princes William and Harry in a scene from Star Wars: The Last Jedi in which they all dressed as masked stormtroopers. The scene did not appear in the finished film.

The 41-year-old was nominated for an Oscar for his role in 2015’s The Revenant and has also starred in such films as Mad Max: Fury Road, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises.

Ken Follett, who has been honoured for his services to literature, is known for writing such historical novels as The Pillars of the Earth, World Without End and his best-selling Century trilogy.

“I’m off to Buckingham Palace today,” the 69-year-old author told his Twitter followers on Friday in a post showing him sporting a top hat and morning coat.

Sir Lloyd Dorfman, the founder of Travelex, is no stranger to the Prince of Wales, having been chairman of The Prince’s Trust since 2005.

The 66-year-old donated £10m to the National Theatre in 2010, resulting in one of its stages, formerly the Cottesloe, being renamed in his honour. Travelex also subsidised the venue’s cheap ticket scheme for 15 years.

The star is set to appear in Marvel’s ‘Venom’ and the upcoming Al Capone movie ‘Fonzo’

Tom Hardy has said he’s “kind of had enough” of acting and wants to “go on with [his] life.”
The actor is set to appear in Marvel‘s Venom, which is due for release on October 5, and the forthcoming Al Capone movie, Fonzo.

Speaking to Esquire, Hardy discussed how turning 40 last year had changed his perspective on his career. “You’ve summited Everest,” he replied. “It’s a miracle that you’ve made it anywhere near the fucking mountain, let alone climbed it. Do you want to go all the way back and do it again? Or do you want to get off the mountain and go fucking find a beach?”

Tom Hardy is a man of mystery. Well, sort of. But while he is keen to keen his private life just that, you better bet when it comes to his children, he keeps that on lock down, as he explained to Esquire UK recently.

The 40-year-old action man has 10-year-old son with ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed and a two-year-old with his actress wife Charlotte Riley – and it’s been reported Charlotte is pregnant with the couple’s second child.

While the Venom star – who just finished filming the comic’s big screen incarnation – admitted he is fine with people snapping pictures of him and his wife, when it comes to his kids cameras are a no go zone.

Next year, Daniel Craig will make his final appearance as 007 in the yet-untitled 25th James Bond film directed by Danny Boyle. While there have been a number of rumors about who will pick up the role, former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan has endorsed Tom Hardy to be the next 007.

“I think Tom Hardy could be a good Bond. I’d be happy to see him do it. You need an actor who can put a bit of wiggle into it—that’s what makes Bond,” he told the The Mail on Sunday’s Event magazine.

While it’s not clear what he means by “put a bit of wiggle into it” (perhaps that Hardy has a nice butt?), Brosnan has always been a fan of Craig as Bond.

“Daniel Craig has been an incredible Bond,” Brosnan said. “He’s very physical, he looks lethal. You genuinely believe this is someone who could kill a man.”

Yes, fans and critics alike have both enjoyed Craig’s time as Bond, but unfortunately for the actor it’s been an entirely miserable experience. Maybe Hardy would hopefully have a little more fun with it!

Matt Dillon and Linda Cardellini also sign up.

Tom Hardy’s upcoming Al Capone biopic Fonzo has added a whole load of new names, with Twin Peaks star Kyle MacLachlan leading the pack.

The movie, which will be directed by Fantastic Four’s Josh Trank, will focus on the notorious crime boss and his later years in prison where dementia plagues his mind.

MacLachlan has been cast as Capone’s doctor Karlock, according to The Hollywood Reporter, alongside Matt Dillon (Crash) as his closest friend Johnny.

Also joining the cast are Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks) as the mobster’s long-suffering wife Mae, and Kathrine Narducci (Power), who plays sister Rosie.

This isn’t Hardy’s first brush with playing gangsters though, having previously taken on the role of the Kray twins in 2015’s Legend.

Meanwhile, the actor’s deleted scene from Star Wars: The Last Jedi was unveiled this week. Hardy played a Stormtrooper that gets a bit handsy with Finn (John Bodega).

The clip also sees him sport a bizarre accent as he intimidates Finn into believing that he has been caught out while under cover.

As for MacLachlan – he recently starred in the revival series of Twin Peaks, returning as Agent Dale Cooper, though whether there will be any more remains as unanswered as the series’ ending.

Fonzo, which is due to begin principal photography next month in New Orleans, doesn’t currently have a release date.

The Call of Duty movie could finally be heading into production in the near future.

And it would seem it’s a fairly decent bet to say that Tom Hardy and Chris Pine will be sized up for roles in the film if Sicario 2 director Stefano Sollima gets his way.

Dropping what now could be a heavy hint as to who he’ll cast in the lead roles of the COD movie, should rumours regarding Activision Blizzard’s interest in him prove true, The Gomorrah director revealed that Tom, 40, and Chris, 37, are at the top of his list to work with.

Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk in Milan at the launch of his short film for Campari, The Legend of Red Hand, the 51-year-old director expressed his admiration for the two star, admitting he ‘loved’ their work.

Speaking of Tom, Stefano said he was a huge fan of the British actor’s CV, saying: ‘I mean, I like almost everything [he’s been in]. I’m waiting for his Venom. Even in Mad Max, he was great.’

And it seems that his other favourite actor in Tinsel Town is none other than Chris Pine.

‘He’s tough, but he’s smart and he can have a sense of humour but he can [also] be in such a dramatic role,’ the director explained. ‘I like when you feel that an actor can play with different nuances and tone because this means they’re a good actor.’

Tom has previously starred in war epics Band of Brothers and Black Hawk Down, while he also is no stranger to taking on roles more closely tied to pop culture with Mad Max: Fury Road and The Dark Knight Rises being two of his biggest silver screen jaunts.

Likewise Chris isn’t green to playing the soldier, or at least the adventurer, as he boldly went where only William Shatner had been before when he headed up J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot.

Basically, it sounds as though this movie would be the perfect vehicle to help the director realise his ambition of working with the two stars

om Hardy has revealed Sony’s forthcoming Venom movie will be based on the Lethal Protector comic book series.

The actor made the revelation in a recorded message for Sony’s presentation at the Comic Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil (via comicbook.com).

During the recording, Hardy also revealed the 2018 movie will be set in San Francisco and will be ‘important to the Marvel universe’ as a whole.

Venom follows the adventures of Eddie Brock (Hardy), the character who first becomes Marvel villain Venom.

The Lethal Protector comic series was published by Marvel Comics in 1993 and begins with Venom and Spider-Man agreeing to a truce and Venom moving to San Francisco.

However, once in San Francisco, Venom is attacked by the son of one of his past victims and hunted down by the Life Foundation, who want to use his Venom symbiote for their own purposes – which is when trouble really ensues.

Venom stars Tom Hardy in the titular role; with Jenny Slate, Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed also on board.

Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer will direct the project, while Fifty Shades of Grey scriptwriter Kelly Marcel, Scott Rosenberg (Jumanji) and Jeff Pinkner are signed up for writing duties.

Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the movie, along with Sony chairman Amy Pascal, who oversaw the first Sony/Marvel film Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Previously, Pascal has said Venom does exist within the same universe as Spider-Man: Homecoming.

However, this seemed at odds with Marvel boss Kevin Feige’s statement that there were no plans to bring Venom into the MCU.

Indeed, while Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will not appear in any Venom outings, it is thought Venom could make an appearance in Spider-Man films in the foreseeable future, which would more than explain the discrepancies in Pascal and Feige’s statements.

Say it is so, Marvel.

Venom is due out in cinemas on October 5, 2018.

Taboo collaborators Steven Knight, Tom Hardy and Ridley Scott are to re-team for a series of Charles Dickens adaptations for the BBC, starting with A Christmas Carol.

A 3 x 60-minute version on the festive classic will form part of BBC1’s 2019 Christmas schedule, with other titles set to form a ‘boxset’ of dramas based on Dickens’ most iconic novels.

Knight, who also created Peaky Blinders, will adapt the stories for Scott’s company Scott Free London and Hardy’s indie Hardy Son and Baker.

A Christmas Carol is one of Dickens’ most adapted works, in both its traditional form and variants and parodies ranging from Blackadder to the Muppets.

The BBC’s last traditional adaptation was in 1977 with Michael Holden taking the lead role of Ebeneezer Scrooge.

The BBC has yet to confirm which other stories will follow, nor how many.

Knight promised that the adaptations would respect the spirit of Dickens’ writing, while offering a fresh spin on their timeless themes.

“Any question about narrative storytelling is answered by Dickens,” he said. To have the chance to revisit the text and interpret in a new way is the greatest privilege. We need luck and wisdom to do this justice.”

Hardy added: “A Christmas Carol is a fabulous, magical piece of theatre and an embarrassment of riches for our creative team – from character all the way through to design. Here’s to having a lot of intricate and wonderful fun. We feel very lucky.”

The adaptations were ordered by BBC Drama controller Piers Wenger, who said: “Steven’s unique ability to reimagine the past and to turn it in to must-see drama makes him the perfect writer to reimagine Dickens’ most famous works for a new generation.”

The multi-year deal echoes last year’s commission of seven Agatha Christie dramas to be co-produced by Agatha Christie Ltd’s production arm, which built on three Mammoth Screen adaptations penned by Sarah Phelps.

BBC1 was due to air the first of the adaptations, Ordeal by Innocence, this Christmas but has pulled it following sexual assault and rape allegations against cast member Ed Westwick.
