First Image of Tom Hardy and Tom Hardy as Twin Gangsters in Brian Helgeland’s LEGEND

Budgets are tight these days, so when a movie calls for twins and you’ve already landed yourself a high-profile actor, sometimes you just have to Winklevoss it. Such is the case with writer-director Brian Helgeland’s new thriller, Legend, which stars Tom Hardy as identical twin gangsters Ronald and Reginald Kray.  As you can tell from the above image, Hardy is taking on both roles, which is hardly surprising considering his chameleon-like abilities he’s showcased throughout his career.  If nothing else, this is an opportunity to stretch his acting chops as he’ll have to develop distinctive looks, mannerisms, and personalities to distinguish the Krays.  A worthy challenge.

Hit the jump to view the full image from Legend, and for more on the picture.

Check out the first look at Hardy and Hardy as Kray and Kray in Legend (via The Playlist):

Last we heard, Emily Browning was also rumored to be starring in the film, so now that it’s officially underway, hopefully we’ll hear some actual cast and plot confirmations in the coming weeks.  All we know at this point is that Legend will center on the Krays, twin gangsters who terrorized London in the 1950s and 60s.  Hardy’s certainly done his part as a lawbreaker in the past with roles as varied as a bootlegger in Lawless, a psycho in Bronson, a mind-thief in Inception, and a terrorist in The Dark Knight Rises.  I think he can handle twins.

In addition to being on a short list to play the title role of Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Hardy’s also being rumored to star opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The RevenantHardy’s other upcoming pictures include Michaël R. Roskam’s crime-thriller The DropDaniel Espinosa’s Child 44, the musical London Road, plus George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road.  Oh, yeah, and he’ll be playing Elton John in Rocketman.
