Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy might not have much time together (any time together?) in The Dark Knight Rises, but they were evidently close enough to take this beautiful photo together, so let’s call it a reunion anyway.
Child 44 will feature Hardy as a fifties Soviet military police agent who comes under government suspicion while investigating some child murders; Oldman will play the head of police, the one keeping tabs on Hardy. Noomi Rapace and Joel Kinnaman are also onboard, with Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) directing.

Tom can be seen with Mika Salo in Driven To Extremes which will air on 13th March on the Discovery Channel.
Tom Hardy has teamed with Solar Pictures to develop Samarkand, a drama that will be directed by Greg Williams and tackles the topical hot button issue of post traumatic stress disorder.
Hardy will portray an SAS soldier returning from operations in the Middle East. Suffering from PTSD, he has a most difficult time reintegrating from the battlefield back into society. The script was written by Greg and Olly Williams, brothers who developed the picture with Hardy and Solar Pictures’ Bobby Paunescu.
Williams, a celebrated photographer, makes this his feature debut. His 2011 short film Sergeant Slaughter, My Big Brother starred Hardy and it won Williams Best Director honors at the New York, Chicago and San Francisco Short Film Festivals.
Hardy is attached to the Steven Knight-directed Locke, the Daniel Espinosa-directed Child 44, and the Doug Liman-directed Everest. He’ll next star with Noomi Rapace in an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s Animal Rescue for Fox Searchlight, with Michael R. Roskam directing. He’s repped by CAA.
Steven Knight’s real-time thriller
With his days as Gotham’s reckoning behind him, Tom Hardy his loading his schedule with new movies that don’t require him to take out American Football stadiums. But even with several films now in development, he’s got room for more, adding a starring role in Steven Knight’s Locke to his to-do list.
Knight, who wrote Dirty Pretty Things, Amazing Grace, Eastern Promises and recently turned director for his thriller script Hummingbird, is back in the big folding chair for this one.
Locke finds Hardy as Ivan Locke, a man who finds his seemingly perfect life unravelling during a tension-filled 90-minute race against the clock, which will apparently be shot to take place in real time.
With shooting set to start later this month in London, Knight and backers IM Global are headed to Berlin this week to sell the rights at the European Film Market. And this being a film for sale, there’s naturally a supportive press release to go along with it. “I’m really excited to be working with Tom Hardy on an innovative piece of filmmaking which will exercise his immense talent to the full,” Knight says in a statement picked up by the Hollywood Reporter. We’re just hoping they can make it work more skilfully than Johnny Depp thriller Nick Of Time or Al Pacino dud 88 Minutes.
Hardy has finally finished work on the exhaustive Mad Max: Fury Road shoot and is also scheduled to film Animal Rescue alongside Noomi Rapace. Sounds like Locke will fit in before everything else he has planed…

Daniel Espinosa is directing the Ridley Scott-produced, Soviet Union-set thriller.
Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace are in negotiations to team up to star in Child 44, a Soviet-era thriller being produced by Ridley Scott and Michael Costigan.
Daniel Espinosa is directing the thriller, which is set in the 1950s and follows a member of the Soviet police who, while investigating a series of child murders, finds himself the target of his own government’s suspicions.
Hardy will play the Soviet officer while Rapace will play his wife, who pretends to be doting partner but is concealing many thoughts and feelings.
Richard Price wrote the script adapting the Tom Rob Smith novel.
Hardy (CAA, Sloane Offer, and UK’s United Agents) starred as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises while Rapace (UTA, Magnolia Entertainment) and was the lead in Scott’s giant sci-fi movie Prometheus.
The two will first work together on Fox Searchlight’s drama Animal Rescue, which is due to shoot in March before segueing to Child 44, which is eyeing a start in Budapest towards the end of May.
