First Look: Tom Hardy Doubles Down as Criminal Twins in 'Legend'

June 12, 2014


Back in February, we learned that Inception and The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy would star in Legend as twin gangster brothers Ronald and Reginald Kray, known for their criminal activities in London throughout the 50s and 60s. Director Brian Helgeland (Payback, 42) is at the helm of the film, and now we have a first look photo of Hardy as both of the brothers. And through the magic of photoshop or special effects, we see them both in the same image. There's a clear difference between the two characters, despite being identical twins, and we can't wait to see how Hardy fares with both performances. Look now!

Here's the first look at Tom Hardy in Brian Helgeland's Legend (via The Playlist):


Legend is written and directed by Brian Helgeland (A Knight's Tale, Payback, 42). Tom Hardy plays Ronie & Reggie Kray, British criminals who ran a gang called The Firm, who was involved in armed robberies, arson, protection rackets and murders .The story will follow the relationship the two brothers had with each other, not to mention their encounters with notorious gangsters like Jack “the Hat” McVitie, who was murdered by Reginald in 1967, and the brothers’ nemesis in the police force, Leonard “Nipper” Read, who was dedicated to getting the brothers in prison. There's no release date set for the film just yet. Interested?

    Hm, thought The Krays was the definitive film on the subject...but an updated look could be interesting.
  • Can't wait to see a trailer
    Hardy cleans up well.
