Tom Hardy To Lead And Produce In Vertigo Comic Adaptation ‘100 Bullet’
Looks like Tom Hardy, who played as the villain “Bane” of “The Dark Knight Rises,” is determined to take on another comic book character as he has signed on to produce and possibly star in New Line’s big-screen adaptation of “100 Bullets.”
The film adaptation would be based on the comic of the same name from DC Comics imprint Vertigo by writer Brian Azzarello and artist Eduardo Risso. While the film will be developed by Warner Bros. Entertainment subsidiary New Line Cinema.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the “Mad Max” actor will produce alongside Dean Baker via the duo’s Hardy Son & Baker production shingle. The plot, which is been developed by the screenplay writer of recent supernatural horror movie “The Vatican Tapes”- Chris Borrelli, still remains under wrap.
The acclaimed comic ran for 100 issues from 1999 to 2009. It tells the story of a mysterious man named Agent Graves who presents different people that have been wronged a chance for revenge and 100 untraceable bullets with which to seize it.
New Line is also working on an adaptation of “Sandman.” It is the Vertigo title created by Neil Gaiman, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt tapped to star and direct.
Some fans might have been disheartened when television stopped airing 100 Bullets few years back. But like always there is a bight sight as the comic is about to enter the big screen with Tom Hardy onboard.
