Tom Hardy to star in the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder drama Samarkand
Tom Hardy is quickly becoming the next generation’s Brad Pitt. The guy is attaching himself to just about every project that comes along and at any given time, Tom Hardy has at least four or five projects on deck. He’s added SAMARKAND to that list today, reteaming him with director Greg Williams, who previously directed Tom Hardy in the short film SERGEANT SLAUGHTER, MY BIG BROTHER. SAMARKAND will tackle the controversial issue of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and will follow a soldier returning home from war and struggling to adapt to his new life. Tom Hardy and Greg Williams received a lot of acclaim for their short film, so hopefully they can duplicate that effort on a feature length movie.
So for those of you keeping track at home, Tom Hardy currently has ANIMAL RESCUE with Noomi Rapace, LOCKE for Stephen Knight, the adaptation of SPLINTER CELL, EVEREST for Doug Liman and CHILD 44 for Daniel Espinosa. That’s 6 movies now that he’s set to star in, then he has the animal trafficking film with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire he’s working on, along with the long gestating Al Capone biopic. In summation, the guy is busy. (Deadline)
