Shirtless, Tatted, Bearded Tom Hardy Covers 'Esquire': PHOTOS

Hardy

Tom Hardy rips his shirt off for this month's Esquire in advance of his new film Locke, and tells the magazine that the rough image he projects isn't all he's cracked up to be:

"I have always been frightened with men. To the point where I couldn't go into a gym because of the testosterone and I felt weak. I don't feel very manly. I don't feel rugged and strong and capable in real life, not how i imagine a man ought to be. So I seek it, to mimic it and maybe understand it, or maybe to draw it into my own reality. People who are scary, they terrify me, but I can imitate them. I'm not a fighter. I'm a petite little bourgeosis boy from London. I don't fight, I mimic."

In May we reported that Tom Hardy was circling a biopic of Elton John called Rocketman. He has now signed on to the picture which will be produced by Focus Features, EW reports:

Rocketman will tell John’s legendary story, from his childhood to his unbelievable rise to fame. John is set to re-record a number of his biggest hits to match the emotional moments in the film, which will be directed by Michael Gracey, the man behind the upcoming film The Greatest Showman on Earth starring Hugh Jackman.

The screenplay was written by War Horse writer Lee Hall and starts shooting in fall 2014.

Screendaily adds:

Steve Hamilton Shaw and David Furnish of Rocket Pictures are producing alongside Lawrence Bender on behalf of AI Film, the production and financing company that ensued from the acquisition of Icon by Len Blavatnik’s Access Industries.


Tom Hardy Rumored To Be Circling Elton John Biopic

Fresh off of the success of Behind the Candelabra, HBO’s Liberace biopic, come casting rumors about another upcoming film project centered around another gay musical performer.

Elton John’s Rocketman, which has been in development for a few years now, has recently come into the spotlight once again amid rumors that Tom Hardy, star of films such as The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, This Is War, Bronson, and the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road, is currently circling the lead role. Hardy has yet to receive a formal offer or offer a comment. However, HitFlix has reportedly received news from within that producers Elton John, David Furnish, and Steve Hamilton-Shaw, and director Michael Gracy currently have Hardy at the top of their most-wanted list.

John has previously expressed interest in having actor-musician Justin Timberlake play the lead role, one that he has already performed in a David LaChapelle video and on Saturday Night Live. No news has been released as to whether Timberlake is still in the running.


Movies: "Lawless" Needs More Moonshine

Lawless-bros
Oh, Shia... Man up! You've disappointed Tom Hardy again.

BY NATHANIEL ROGERS

YOUR FEATURE PRESENTATION

Special Deputy Charlie Rakes (Guy Pearce) doesn't believe the tall tales about the outlaw Bondurant Boys he keeps hearing in LAWLESS, especially the ones about Forrest (Tom Hardy). Local Virginia legend has it that Forrest can't be killed, that he's immortal.  "Have you ever seen what a tommy gun does to 'immortal'?" Rakes sneers in a (successful) effort to terrorize the town's Forrest fearing men into submission. Rakes then beats the youngest Bondurant brother Jack (Shia Labeouf) into a blubbering pulp. But, as it turns out, the Bondurant brothers are resilient enough to inspire tall tales. Forrest and his brothers make their living as moonshiners in this Depression-era Western and with Prohibition empowering organized crime, everyone is looking to be the top boss. The brothers value their autonomy but the guns are out and if an actual crime lord (Gary Oldman's "Floyd Banner") don't get them, then the even more crooked law enforcement (Pearce's Deputy) just might.

Such is the bloody conflict of John Hillcoat's Lawless, based on the historical novel "The Wettest County in the World" which was written by a grandson of the Bondurants (all childless during the movie) suggesting straightaway that at least one of them is going to make it out of the movie alive. Not that the film is shy about spoilers given its heavy handed foreshadowing and the past-tense narration. (You gotta Live to Tell).
