Tom Hardy To Star & Produce 100 Bullets

THR is reporting New Line and Tom Hardy are loading up on 100 Bullets.

In the first move since assuming oversight of DC Entertainment’s Vertigo comics imprint from corporate parent Warner Bros., New Line is developing an adaptation of the acclaimed comic by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso.

Hardy, who played villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises as well as starred in this summer’s Mad Max: Fury Road, is on board to produce the adaptation with an eye to star. He will produce with Dean Baker via the duo’s Hardy Son & Baker production shingle.

The project is already down the line in development, having a script by Chris Borrelli, whose credits include the recent supernatural horror movie The Vatican Tapes.

Running for 100 issues from 1999 to 2009, the acclaimed comic centered on an enigmatic man named Agent Graves as he presents different people, for reasons unknown, with a gun, the identity of the person who ruined their lives … and a hundred rounds of untraceable ammunition.

Over the course of the series emerged a large crime saga that won accolades in the form of Eisner and Harvey Awards for Azzarello, Risso and the comic.

The plot for movie is being kept locked in a briefcase but insiders say the plan is to stay true to the comic.

Geoff Johns and Adam Schlagman are overseeing for DC while Richard Brener, Walter Hamada and Dave Neustadter run point for New Line.

In a reshuffling of the slate that occurred in late June, New Line absorbed production and development of DC’s Vertigo, the imprint that tends to be edgier, creator-focused and multigenre when compared with DC Comics proper, the home of four-color heroes such as Batman, Wonder Woman and the Flash.

New Line is overseeing the adaptation of Sandman, the Vertigo title created by Neil Gaiman that has Joseph Gordon-Levitt involved as star and director but that was already in active development at Warners when the transfer occurred. 100 Bullets is the first Vertigo feature project to actively move forward in any way since New Line took over the imprint.

The project was previously in the chamber to be a television series with David Goyer involved and was also being developed as a movie by Akiva Goldsman's Weed Road.

Hardy’s Fury Road has grossed over $372 million worldwide for Warners. He next will reunite with his Inception co-star Leonardo DiCaprio for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's revenge Western, Revenant, and also plays twin gangsters in Working Title’s crime drama Legend.

He and Hardy Son & Baker are currently producing Taboo for FX and BBC One in partnership with Ridley Scott and Scott Free London.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…

From Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody – the team behind JUNO and YOUNG ADULT – comes a new grown-up comedy with their signature style of irreverence and insight. Academy Award winner Charlize Theron gives an extraordinary performance in TULLY - the story of a parent stretched to her limit, the bonds of female friendship and how we can embrace the messiness of life. While it might not have been intentional, TULLY completes a trilogy that began with JUNO and YOUNG ADULT. Each features a female protagonist at a different stage of her life, and each film explores how complicated it is to find happiness.
