Tom Hardy as Ronnie & Reggie Kray

Shooting has just started on Legend, the Working Title period gangster pic that sees Tom Hardy step into dual roles as the infamous Kray twins Ronnie and Reggie. Studiocanal, which is fully financing, nearly sold out on the Brian Helgeland-scripted and directed film in Cannes. Cross Creek has North America on Legend which will go out via Universal through its distribution deal with the studio. Release is expected in late 2015. Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Chazz Palminteri, Tara Fitzgerald and Taron Egerton have also been confirmed in the cast of the film that follows the rise and fall of the notorious London gangsters in the 50s and 60s. It’s based on John Pearson’s book The Profession Of Violence. Check out the versatile Hardy as Reggie and Ronnie:

    No way!!!!!! I’m EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!!!! There was a movie made back in the 80’s about the Krays … it was a good flick from memory. I’ll need to dig it up and watch it again.

    • Yep, The Krays with those twins from Spandau Ballet… not bad, Billie Whitelaw as their mum stole the show.
