Watch Tom Hardy playing the Kray twins in the Legend trailer
Tom Hardy pulls double duty in the thriller about the twins who ruled London’s underground in the 1960s.
The actor, perhaps best known for his role as Bane is Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film, will play another equally dark role (well, two to be precise) in Legend, the film about the Kray twins Reggie and Ronnie and the hunt to track them down in 1960’s London.
Also cast in the film are Emily Browing as Francis Shea, Reggie Kray’s wife, while Christopher Eccleston plays Leonard ‘Nipper’ Read, the Detective Chief Superintendent whose role it is to find the brothers and prosecute them for their crimes.
Colin Morgan, Paul Bettany and David Thewlis will all also appear.
The film, which shot in London last summer, is slated to be released on September 11th.
