Tom Hardy to play gangster Al Capone

Tom Hardy is set to star as the infamous Al Capone in the upcoming film “Fonzo” from writer/director Josh Trank.

Once a ruthless businessman and bootlegger who ruled Chicago with an iron fist, Alfonse Capone was the most infamous and feared gangster of American lore.  At the age of 47, following nearly a decade of imprisonment, dementia rots Alfonse’s mind and his past becomes present as harrowing memories of his violent and brutal origins melt into his waking life.

Russell Ackerman and John Schoenfelder will produce for Addictive Pictures along with Lawrence Bender.
