Movie News: Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy Teaming Up Again
Tom Hardy and Gary Oldman are teaming up…again. The, what seems unlikely, pair have already teamed up for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Dark Knight Rises, and Lawless. The common denominator in all of those films? They were good. Lawless may not have got the notoriety that the other two films got, but still a good movie nonetheless.
According to Indiewire, the film they are looking to do now is Child 44. The fill will also star Noomi Rapace and Joel Kinnaman. The movie is set to be produced by Ridley Scott and directed by Daniel Espinosa. So far, there’s nothing about those names that makes me think this movie will be bad.
The story follows an MGB agent, played by Hardy, in the 1950’s who is investigating a high profile child murderer who may be connected to the top of the party leadership. Rapace will play the wife of Hardy, while Kinnaman will be Hardy’s bad guy in the film. As for Oldman, he will be playing a cop. Go figure right? Except in this role, he’s one of the suspects in the case.
If you’re not excited for this cast and crew, well I’m not sure what to tell you. This looks to be a great movie though.
