josh trank tom hardy cia series

Josh Trank and Tom Hardy recently unleashed Capone upon the world, and they’re not through yet. According to Trank, he’s developing a new limited series about the CIA for Hardy to produce and star in. The series will track the forming of the CIA and, in Trank’s words, “capitalism versus communism.” And I only have one question: what weird voice will Hardy use on the show?

capone review

Al Capone wanders out of the bushes, a diaper sagging around his midsection, a Tommy Gun at the ready. And not just any Tommy Gun, but a Tommy Gun made out of solid gold. A carrot clenched between his teeth like a cigar, Capone begins firing wildly, growling, screaming, drooling. He chomps down on that carrot like a deranged Bugs Bunny, and hikes up his soiled diaper.

This is Capone, Josh Trank‘s strange hybrid that wants to be both a gangster movie and also a horror pic. At the center of it all is Tom Hardy, who gets another excuse to use a strange voice. Hardy’s Capone is not the legendary gangster at the height of his Scarface days, but Capone nearing the end of his life, his mind ravaged by neurosyphilis. Here is a man who will not live out his final days with dignity.

Venom Sequel

Yesterday brought the disappointing news that Venom 2 was being pushed back eight months from a theatrical release in October this year to a mid-summer release in 2021. But there was also some good news along with it as the title for the sequel was revealed to be Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Just in case you doubted that this over-the-top, on-the-nose title wasn’t real, an official Venom 2 title teaser has been released by Sony Pictures confirming that there will indeed be Carnage next summer.

tom hardy bedtime stories

There’s nothing that British children love more than Tom Hardy, apparently. The Venom actor is about to become a staple of British children’s television, with an upcoming stint on the BBC pre-school channel CBeebies’ Bedtime Stories program, where celebrities read bedtime stories to kids. Hardy had appeared on the program back in 2016 and quickly became the most popular celebrity storyteller on the series. Because of the children, for sure.

capone trailer

You might’ve forgotten this, but Josh Trank, director of The Fantastic Four, teamed-up with Tom Hardy to make a movie about Al Capone. The film was previously titled Fonzo, and it sort of fell off the radar for a while. Now it’s back, and it has a trailer, and a new title – Capone. Rather than just a standard biopic, Capone follows the mob boss in his later years, as he lives out his final days with dementia. Unless…that’s all an act. Watch the Capone trailer below.

Venom 2 Set Photo

When Venom came to a close, Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) came face-to-face with Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson) and all of his curly red-haired glory. The vicious criminal gave us the oh-so-very subtle tease of his future as the super villain Carnage in this comic book universe (which may or may not be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?) with the line, “When I get out of here, and I will, there’s gonna be carnage.” Now it seems we have confirmation of the character’s escape in the first Venom 2 set photo, as revealed by Venom star Tom Hardy himself.

Michelle Williams in Venom

Hot on the heels of news that Andy Serkis will be stepping behind the camera for the sequel to the surprise comic book movie hit Venom, we have word on at least one returning cast member joining Tom Hardy for another round of symbiote action.

Michelle Williams, who was a perplexing but welcome addition to the first Venom movie, has confirmed that she will be back for the sequel. Does that mean Venom 2 will end up having She-Venom come back for some more smooching with Eddie Brock? We can only hope that’s the case, if only to give the internet more weird things to think about for a little while. Read More »

venom 2 director update

There have been rumors swirling that Andy Serkis was on the verge of landing the Venom 2 director gig, and we might have just gotten confirmation. Quickly deleted confirmation, that is. Venom himself, Tom Hardy, posted a pic of Serkis on his Instagram last night – and then immediately took it down. Was this Hardy accidentally letting the symbiote out of the bag too soon? Or is he just a really big fan of Andy Serkis pictures?

Venom Sequel

After Venom raked in over $855 million worldwide, there was no way Sony Pictures would pass on a sequel to the wildly successful Spider-Man spin-off. So it comes as no surprise that the studio is moving forward with plans for a Venom sequel, and they’re bringing back Kelly Marcel, one of the original film’s writers, to pen the script and executive produce. But director Ruben Fleischer won’t be returning to direct since he’ll be busy at the helm of another sequel, Zombieland 2. What about the cast?
