Watch Tom Hardy suit up to play real-life mobster twins in Legend trailer

Posted on

Tom Hardy times two? The trailer for Legend features Hardy taking on the roles of two notorious brothers, Reggie and Ron Kray, and the suit look is definitely working for him. 

The film, directed by Oscar-winning writer Brian Helgeland, is based on the real-life Kray twins who ruled organized crime in London back in the ’50s and ’60s. With minimal dialogue, the clip shows there might be a little something for everyone in Legend: romance, drama, and plenty of violent action.  

In addition to his work behind the camera, Helgeland wrote the screenplay, inspired by John Pearson’s Profession of Violence. Though there is no official release date in the U.S. just yet, Legend hits theaters in the U.K. on Sept. 11. Hardy fans can also catch him in the upcoming film, Mad Max: Fury Road, out May 15.
