A first official image has even revealed showing British actor Tom Hardy playing the world famous American gangster Al Capone. Hardy is almost completely unrecognisable in the image, which depicts and wrinkled and ageing Capone, smoking a cigar with menacing eyes.
The role is for an upcoming film called Fonzo, which will chart the final year of Capone’s life, aged 47 and suffering from dementia following his time in Alcatraz.
Co-stars include Linda Cardellini (Mae Capone), Matt Dillon, Kyle MacLachlan and Noel Fisher. It will also be scored by Run The Jewels’ producer and rapper El-P.
