According to actor Tom Hardy ("The Dark Knight Rises"), he will play ruthless 1920's gangster 'Al Capone' in the feature "Cicero", to be directed by David Yates, following reshoots of director George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road".
Hardy said he has been working with Warner Bros, "watching their gangster films — the ones with James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and Edward G. Robinson...it’s interesting to get them, and a bit of Capone, into the bloodstream… The idea isn’t to remake those films but to get a flavour of them as we explore Capone’s career as a racketeer."
Actors previously playing Capone in film include Rod Steiger, "Al Capone" (1959), Neville Brand, "The George Raft Story (1961), Jason Robards, "The St. Valentine's Day Massacre" (1967), Buddy Lester, "Poor Devil" (1973), Ben Gazzara, »
