Tom Hardy is reportedly reuniting with Ridley Scott, who handed him his big screen debut in Black Hawk Down, for a new action movie funded by Netflix.
The Hollywood Reporter claims that Tom will star in War Party, which is set to be produced by Scott’s company Scott Free Productions and directed by Andrew Dominik, who previously helmed The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford.
Plot details for the project are yet to be revealed but it’s thought that the film will be based on real-life events, with Hardy portraying a decorated US Navy Seal who is sent on a perilous mission.
Netflix are also confirmed to have won rights for the film, after reportedly beating off competition from studios including Universal, Lionsgate and streaming competitors Amazon.
But before he has the chance to play the finest of the US military, Tom will next be seen as a British World War Two hero in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, which is set for release in July and also marks the acting debut of one Harry Styles.
Ridley, meanwhile, is gearing up to release Alien: Covenant; his production house previously produced Tom’s BBC period drama Taboo earlier this year.
