Josh Trank and Tom Hardy developing a CIA limited series
Following the digital release of Capone earlier this week, director Josh Trank has confirmed that he will again be reuniting with Academy Award nominee Tom Hardy in an untitled limited series that centers around the formation of the CIA. Speaking with Collider, the Chronicle filmmaker has revealed he and Hardy will serve as producers for the project which he described as “interesting, dangerous and fascinating.”
“I’m working on this limited series that Tom Hardy is producing and that he’s involved in and he’s very excited about, and I’m excited about,” Trank said. “[and it’s] a story that spans decades, from right at the end of World War II and concerning the formation of the CIA, but from a point of view that hasn’t really been seen in a movie or in television before, and is just mentioned in books. It deals a lot with Castro and Cuba, and capitalism versus Communism. It’s really big. Sort of the, you know, capitalism versus communism. It’s really big.”
Trank was first recognized for his directorial debut film Chronicle which is a sci-fi thriller that premiered in 2012. After that, his next directorial project was 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot which unfortunately became a box office disappointment and had received negative reviews and immense backlash from Marvel fans.
Tom Hardy is best known for his iconic roles in critically-acclaimed and blockbuster films such as Mad Max: Fury Road, Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Revenant. He will next be seen in Sony Pictures’ upcoming Venom sequel titled Venom: Let The Be Carnage as he reprises his role as Eddie Brock.
