Ascended Fanboy Tom Hardy signs up for "Child 44" alongside BFF Gary Oldman


Tom Hardy and Gary Oldman are beginning to be old pals. The actors have teamed together on a string of strong films, with Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Dark Knight Rises and Lawless under their under their belts, and it's probably safe to say they're getting along quite well. Because they're going to be paired up again in a film with a cast that just keeps getting strong and stronger. Oldman has joined Child 44 with Hardy, Noomi Rapace and Joel Kinnaman. Produced by Ridley Scott, set to be directed by Safe House helmer Daniel Espinosa, the tale follows a disgraced MGB agent (Hardy) in the 1950s Soviet Union investigating a prolific child murderer who may have connections going to the very top of the party leadership. Rapace will play the wife of the agent with secrets of her own, with Kinnaman as Hardy's "nemesis." Oldman will play a member of the military police who is suspected in the case. The film has a script by Richard Price ("The Wire," "Clockers"), it's based off the book by Tom Rob Smith and if you aren't excited by this cast, we can't help you. Filming will get underway this summer.

Yay! I just totally die when I think about how he idolized him in film school and stuff. If you could do a movie with your fave, who would it be, ONTD?

GARY OLDMAN AND JOEL KINNAMAN, i need to see this movie right now

God I love this man, he's such a dork. And if I could do a movie with anyone...definitely an EPIC romance with Tom Hardy and Joseph Gordon-Levitt fighting over me and then we all enter into a harmonious and polyamorous relationship.

This is clearly the best idea; everyone else go home.

UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH do you know how much I hate Olivia Munn for getting to tap Joel Kinnaman on the regular?! (She's also an idiot tho so that helps)

Tom, Joel, Gary, Noomi <3

kevin kline, forever and always.

ian mckellan being an extremely close second - but a love story between us would be a little less probable and a lot creepier.

Tommy + Gary + Joel, i don't think i'll survive this movie.
mistress_f 22nd-Mar-2013 03:54 pm (UTC)

Perfect couple, tbh.
kwikimart 22nd-Mar-2013 03:58 pm (UTC)
I started to list my faves but there are way too many to count, I actually started getting annoyed trying to make a list lol.
Anyway, Tom Hardy and Gary Oldman would definitely be up there, if I could act, those would be a couple of the people I'd die if I could work with.

child 44 is a great book. I still need to read the third in the series.

I'd die if I was in a movie with Scarlett Johansson.


Jessica Chastain and Charlize Theron too.
