After Gary Oldman faced Tom Hardy as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, the two stupendous actors are together again, but even further in the past than their collaboration in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Set during the time of Stalin, the new thriller Child 44 follows Hardy as a security guard and former war hero investigating a series of child murders, catching the attention of the government that is trying to hide them for some reason. Oldman plays the head of the police looking into this scary conspiracy and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus) plays his wife. Now we have some first look photos with the stars in the 2014 film.
Here's the first photos from Daniel Espinosa's Child 44 fond by Ropes of Silicon:
Stalin’s Soviet Union is an official paradise, where citizens live free from crime and fear only one thing: the all-powerful state. Defending this system is idealistic security officer Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy), a war hero who believes in the iron fist of the law. But when a murderer starts to kill at will and Leo dares to investigate, the State’s obedient servant finds himself demoted and exiled. Now, with only his wife (Noomi Rapace) at his side, Leo must fight to uncover shocking truths about a killer and a country where “crime” doesn’t exist. Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke, Joel Kinnaman, Vincent Cassel, Paddy Considine and Dev Patel also star in Child 44 directed by Daniel Espinosa, and Summit Entertainment sends it to theaters in 2014.
