Tom Hardy Working On Film Adaptation Of ‘100 Bullets’


Tom Hardy is no newbie to DC Entertainment movies (Dark Knight Rises, anyone?), so producing the film adaptation of “100 Bullets” should be an easy transition for Bane, er… we mean Hardy.

Hardy, who recently starred in this summer’s “Mad Max: Fury Road”, is teaming up with New Line Cinema to produce the adaptation and rumor has it he may also star. With all the badass characters Hardy’s played throughout his career having him star would be beyond awesome!

The original comic follows Agent Graves as he presents victims of various crimes with a gun, the identity of the person who ruined their lives, and 100 rounds of untraceable bullets. It’s basically a “will they or won’t they” revenge story. The critically acclaimed comic, written by Brian Azzarello and illustrated by Eduardo Risso, was so well received during its 10-year run, it won several Eisner and Harvey Awards.

The full plot has yet to be released but our secret spies within New Line Cinema (just kidding, press releases do the trick) tell us that the movie will stay true to the comic books.

Hardy will produce the film with Dean Baker via the duo’s Hardy Son & Baker production shingle. Development on the project has already begun, with a script by Chris Borrelli, whose credits include the recent supernatural horror movie “The Vatican Tapes.”

We’re definitely excited to see Tom Hardy back in action, especially since we’re still coming down from the adrenaline high that “Mad Max: Fury Road” gave us.
