- BANE TO TAKE ON AL CAPONE
Though he’s currently busy causing trouble for Christian Bale’s Batman as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, Tom Hardy is also thinking about future jobs. And one possibility has just arrived on the news radar, with word from Vulture that he’s apparently attached himself to Cicero, a story about the rise of Al Capone that has Harry Potter veteran director David Yates extremely interested.
The basic plot finds a young Capone making his way up the criminal hierarchy.

Warner Bros. is apparently considering this one as possibly launching a trilogy, one that follows Capone through his rise, along his reign and, ultimately to his downfall. Of course, everything is still at an early stage and neither Yates nor Hardy is locked in place yet. Hardy, you might recall, also has another job waiting for him – he’s set to play Mad Max in Fury Road for George Miller, with the director hoping to get started early next year.
