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.
He went on to add that the project isn't exactly a movie, but it could be both a movie and a TV series at the same time."It's not even a movie. It's already... It's real estate, it's PRIME real estate which is sitting there right under everybody's nose that no one's really thought about yet and it goes TV and movie, it's awesome. I can't believe that nobody has even -I know they thought of it but no one has actually blown life into it yet."
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.
