Tom Hardy to star in time-race thriller Locke

Feb 8 2013, 10:10am CST | by

Tom Hardy is set to star in thriller 'Locke'.

'The Dark Knight Rises' actor has been cast in Steven Knight's fast-paced film about a man who embarks on a 90-minute race against time after receiving an unexpected phone call, which the director has pledged to shoot in a 90-minute real time take.

Steven - who has also scripted the IM Global film - said in a statement picked up by the Hollywood Reporter: ''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.''

British stud Tom will play Ivan Locke, a man with the perfect family and career, whose professional and personal lives are threatened when he is forced to make a difficult decision.

Stuart Ford, IM Global's CEO, commented: ''We enjoyed the ride with Steven, [and producers] 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.''

Tom has just wrapped 'Mad Max: Fury Road' and with filming for 'Locke' kicking off in London at the end of February, it appears the thriller will hit cinemas before his new drama 'Animal Rescue', co-starring Noomi Rapace.

Because The Road Warrior is one of the best and most pure action films ever made, we’ve been clocking the development of Fury Road for years. Our first coverage was back in 2008, and the announcement that Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy could be in the film dates back to ’09. News that director George Miller has written not one, but two sequels goes back to 2011. So the Comic Con appearance of Mad Max: Fury Road was a great pleasure. ...

Creating the Fighting Style of Dracula Untold

Jul 28 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: ign

Last fall, I visited the set of Universal’s Dracula Untold in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6, Immortals) stars in the origin film as Prince Vlad as he begins his inevitable transformation into the blood-sucking Dracula. The film, however, isn’t a horror movie but rather an action-adventure tale. So obviously it requires some big fight scenes -- and that’s where stunt coordinator Buster Reeves comes in. He’s worked on many different film ...
