First image of Tom Hardy as Kray Twins in 'Legend' revealed
British actor will take on dual roles in forthcoming movie version of gangster's lives
The first image of Tom Hardy as both Ronnie and Reggie Kray in the forthcoming Legend has been revealed.
As you can see above, Hardy will take on the roles of both gangsters for the movie.
The twins, and East End gangsters, are notorious for their involvement in organised crime in the '50s and '60s and the film is written and directed by Brian Helgeland, who has previously worked on critically acclaimed pictures including LA Confidential and Mystic River.
Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Taron Egerton, Tara Fitzgerald and Chazz Palminteri also appear in the film, which is shooting in London now.
Playing the Kray twins in Legend is the latest in a number of big roles for Hardy, who will also be seen in BBC drama Peaky Blinders for its second season. It was also revealed in October last year that Hardy, who is set to star in the reboot of Mad Max in 2015, has also agreed to take on the role of Elton John in the forthcoming biopic of the piano-playing icon.
