Tom Hardy has signed on to star in the Vertigo Comics adaptation 100 Bullets for New Line Cinema, according to a report from Heat Vision Blog. This project will be the first for New Line since taking over the adaptations of DC Comics' Vertigo imprint. The adaptation is already far into development, with Christopher Borrelli (The Vatican Tapes) writing the screenplay.
The original comic book, created by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso, centers on a special agent named Graves, who has a bizarre way of helping people. He approaches them with a picture of the person who ruined their lives, a gun, and 100 Bullets of ammunition that cannot be traced. The comic book series ran for, appropriately, 100 issues, between 1999 and 2009. No specific details were given regarding the adaptation's plot, but it is expected to stay true to the comics.Read More
Tom Hardy is no stranger to the DC Comics universe, having played Bane in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises, and he was almost set to play Rick Flagg in Suicide Squad before he dropped out. As it turns out, the actor is developing a mysterious new project with both Warner Bros. and DC, which incorporates a number of different comic and non-comic elements, although he wouldn't specifically say what the project is. Here's what he had to say about this secret movie/tv show:"I actually got something cooking with Warner Bros. which is also a comic book, it's a DC thing which is kind of... It's really good actually, it contains elements of all kinds of stuff. From Ocean's Eleven, to Batman, you can get all the wrappers out and it would be a big, really cool, Technicolor, Pulp Fiction... It's a psychological [frick]fest, it's absolutely awesome. It's as if you would take Transmetropolitan and make it happen, but it's not that out there it's something which is much more real world. It could be like Heat, it could be [frick]ing awesome... try and guess.
It's possible that this project could be taking the same path as The Dark Tower, which was being crafted as a trilogy of movies and a TV show to air between each trilogy installment, but that has not been confirmed. Regardless, whatever this project may be, it does sound like a rather massive undertaking, but it isn't known when we'll hear any official details. Do you have any theories about what this mystery project may be? Chime in with your thoughts below.Read More

Out of the actors who have played Frank Castle on the big screen in the past, Tom Hardy would be the shortest, but not by too much. Thomas Jane, who starred in 2004's The Punisher, is 5'11" while Punisher: War Zone star Ray Stevenson stands 6'4" and Dolph Lundgren, who played Frank Castle in 1989's The Punisher, is 6'5". Regardless, Marvel hasn't announced plans for a movie or TV series based on The Punisher, but now that they have the rights, it's certainly not out of the realm of possibilities.
