British actor Tom Hardy has enjoyed quite the rise in Hollywood over the years and is no regarded as one of the top stars in the business, becoming one of the most sought after actors around. Tom has been nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his performance in the hit movie The Revenant and is tipped by most to win the award, but he also has other things to focus on.
Tom Hardy has a number of new movie projects lined up for the coming years and he will play the lead role in the new Christopher Nolan movie Dunkirk. The movie is currently in pre-production and is preparing to begin shooting this year.
Most of you will already know a little about what to expect from the new movie, just from the title of the film, but for those of you wanting to know more about the project, Dunkirk has been officially described as "The film tells the story of the Dunkirk evacuation, which took place at the beginning of World War II." Not much more than that is known yet but we are sure we will learn more over the course of the year.
As well as starring Tom Hardy in the lead role, the rest of the cast of Dunkirk includes such talented Hollywood stars as Mark Rylance and Kenneth Branagh, while Christopher Nolan is on board to direct and produce, as well as penning the screenplay for the movie. Dunkirk is expected to start shooting in the next few months, with the movie set to hit the big screen on July 21, 2017 in both the US and the UK.
