Are Tom Hardy and Gary Oldman teaming up for a new film? Looks like they may just be coming back together. However, unlike Bane and Commissioner Gordon of the Dark Knight series, the two actors will have their new characters firmly seated in reality for the next go around.
The two who worked on Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, reunited for the last Dark Knight installment, The Dark Knight Rises, and will now re-team for in Child 44. Reports came in January that Hardy was attached to Child 44, but now it’s official and Oldman has been added to the cast as well.
Hardy is said to be playing a Soviet military police officer who is stuck in a bind after investigating child murders, and winding up in the middle of his own government investigation. While Hardy is in the lead role, it isn’t set which role Oldman will take, but its been said that the character actor will have a meaty role in Child 44. We wouldn’t bet against that either, Oldman seems to only be taking plum roles. His 2013 will be a huge year. He has films Paranoia, RoboCop, and Monster Butler all under his belt.
It looks like everyone in the cast of Child 44 has a ton of projects lined up like Oldman. Hardy recently finished his role in the Mad Max reboot, and is currently kissing and cuddling puppies in Animal Rescue, and a new film Locke. However, it seems like his Everest film that’s scheduled for 2014 will be his biggest Oscar baited project.
In addition to Tom Hardy and Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace and Joel Kinnaman are also attached to be in Child 44. So far the film is looking to have a really strong cast, with Rapace earning huge acclaim after originating the role of Lisbeth Salander in the Dragon Tattoo series.
