Tom Hardy Is Set to Play Don McCullin in a Movie Directed by Angelina Jolie
Posted by Aysha on December 5th, 2020

Powerful photography and history meet Hollywood in the latest news that war photographer Don McCullin’s life story will be adapted for the screen, with Angelina Jolie onboard to direct the movie.

Although McCullin is best known for his involvement and dedication to war photography, his autobiography, titled “Unreasonable Behaviour”, which was released in 1990, also carries a powerful message and insight from his experiences during various human conflicts. And, it is this memoir that has inspired Scottish playwright Gregory Burke to work on an adaption of McCullin’s life experiences. Burke is best known for having written for the 2014 historical thriller “’71”, which was based on violent clashes in 1970s Belfast, Northern Ireland. 

Angelina Jolie has agreed to direct the film and has expressed that she is “humbled to have a chance to bring Don McCullin’s life to film,” pinpointing McCullin’s dedication to diving deep into witnessing and recording the truth as the source of inspiration, despite how painful it might be not just to observers but also to those experiencing it directly. Jolie’s previous work as a director has also been based around periods of modern conflicts, such as, “First They Killed My Father”, “Land of Blood and Honey”, and “Unbroken”.

English actor Tom Hardy is set to play McCullin in this biopic whose production company, Hardy Son & Baker, is also going to produce the movie alongside Working Title, a British film and television production company. The title and the release date of the film have not yet been confirmed.
