BERLIN - Tom Hardy is set to headline filmmaker Steven Knight's Locke, which IM Global's specialty label Anthem has come aboard to fully finance.
Locke, from Paul Webster, Joe Wright and Guy Heely's Shoebox Films, is sure to draw keen interest from foreign buyers at the European Film Market, where IM Global will launch the project. The market gets underway today in conjunction with the Berlin International Film Festival.
Based on an original screenplay from Knight, Locke tells the story of one man’s life unraveling in a tension-fuelled, 90-minute race against time (Knight will shoot in real time over 90 minutes). Ivan Locke has the perfect family, his dream job, and tomorrow should be the crowning moment of his career. But one phone call will force him to make a decision that will put it all on the line.
Knight is set to begin production later this month in London, with Webster and Heeley producing.
IM Global, Shoebox and Knight previously collaborated on Hummingbird, to be released by Lionsgate later this year.
"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. That IM Global is coming with us on this literal and metaphorical journey is testament to their creative ambition," Knight said.
Said IM Global CEO Stuart Ford: "We enjoyed the ride with Steven, Paul and Guy so much that we're delighted to be in business with the same team on Locke. Adding a brilliant talent like Tom to the equation makes the prospect all the more exciting."
Hardy is represented by United Agents in London and CAA in the U.S.

I'm so excited for all of these new projects tom has! which ones are you most excited for ONTD?

BuzzFeed just teased me and said he joined Instagram.

It's clearly fan made. Overwhelming disappointment.

seriously? dang. I was hoping it was real.
la_fours 7th-Feb-2013 06:10 pm (UTC)
Another one? I love it.

All these new films will hopefully make up for the lack of Tom on the big screen in 2013.
I think I'm most looking forward to Mad Max, Animal Rescue (though I hope that's just a working title), Splinter Cell and Driven to Extremes (the Discovery doc) because we'll actually get to see Tom being himself.

2014 is looking good for Hardy stans.

Hi OP! <3

I've only seen him in Inception and TDKR - I enjoyed him, and should seek out more of his movies.

I bet when he holds his lady, she feels protected as fuck.

What a glorious looking man.

"Ivan Locke has the perfect family, his dream job, and tomorrow should be the crowning moment of his career. But one phone call will force him to make a decision that will put it all on the line."

How groundbreaking.
katikat 7th-Feb-2013 07:00 pm (UTC)
Considering it'll be filmed in real time, yeah, it is.
shadowfax 7th-Feb-2013 06:14 pm (UTC)
Which ones are you most excited for ONTD?

Mad Max!
amkf 7th-Feb-2013 06:15 pm (UTC)
The only one that really interests me is the Roskam Animal Rescue project. Maybe the indie with Shannon too, though I have no idea whether that'll actually happen. He seems to be focusing on thriller/action stuff.
amkf 7th-Feb-2013 06:17 pm (UTC)
Oh, and I just watched Lawless and hated his frog voice. Why did he use it for the entire film instead of waiting until after his throat was cut?
lulubelle007 7th-Feb-2013 06:17 pm (UTC)
Love it, bring him on.
lulubelle007 7th-Feb-2013 06:18 pm (UTC)
oh and - cannot freaking wait for Mad Max. Cant wait.

la_fours 7th-Feb-2013 06:28 pm (UTC)
Sadly nothing other than the first clip (which I'm sure you've seen but I'll post anyway cause it's adorable).

malorn 7th-Feb-2013 06:35 pm (UTC)

thewunderland 7th-Feb-2013 06:36 pm (UTC)
Ugh, it looks so funny.
laurshel 7th-Feb-2013 06:40 pm (UTC)
Is Charlotte a good actress? I've never seen her in anything, only know of her from her connection to Tom.
alexlover14 7th-Feb-2013 06:50 pm (UTC)
The way that he was walking away with the coffee made me laugh so much, Tom should do more comedy.

Though how long ago was this filmed? I thought that Wuthering Heights/The Take was the first time that him and Charlotte worked together. It's cute if they've known each other for longer.

I'm excited for all of them tbh. The ones with Noomi particularly interest me because I think they'll have great chemistry.
