Tom Hardy is furthering his high profile roles with “Fonzo”. Recently seen in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s “The Revenant”, he has been pegged to the role of mob boss Al Capone in the upcoming project.

Tom Hardy will be Al Capone in “Fonzo”

The services of Tom Hardy have been sought for the part of Al Capone in “Fonzo”. This biopic will tell the story of the gangster’s final days. It will explore the character’s tumble into dementia and ultimately, his death. The Chicago criminal was afflicted with general paresis. This mental condition was triggered by his syphilis.

“The Revenant” actor’s second time cast as the mob boss

Interestingly enough, this is the second time Tom Hardy is being cast as Al Capone. According to The Guardian, he was supposed to play this role in a project named “Cicero”. Unfortunately, the latter motion-picture was never made. He then moved on to play the villain Bane in Christoper Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises”. “Fonzo” grants him a second chance to portray Al Capone.

The scriptwriter, director and producers of the film

According to Deadline, “Fonzo” will be written and helmed by Josh Trank. The latter director is known for having led movies such as “Chronicle”, as well as the “Fantastic Four” reboot. The producers on the upcoming Al Capone film are John Schoenfelder and Russell Ackerman, both from Addictive Pictures. They will be partnering with Lawrence Bender for the production of this motion-picture.

The thespian’s track record in villainous roles

Having recently played both Reggie and Ronnie Kray in “Legend”, and also James Keziah Delaney in the miniseries “Taboo”, Tom Hardy has proved that he can play a mean gangster. As observed by The Guardian, Tom Hardy is experienced in playing gangsters and antiheros. This may be why he has been casted as Al Capone in “Fonzo”.
