Tom Hardy is set to lead the real-time thriller, Locke. Written and directed by Steven Knight (writer of Eastern Promises), the 90-minute film “follows a man on the road to success who must race to save his life from unraveling after he receives a mysterious phone call.” The greatest of all real-time thrillers is High Noon (it’s a western, but it’s also a thriller), but recent attempts like Nick of Time and Phone Booth have never really lived up to their hook. At the very least, Locke has a compelling actor with Hardy, so hopefully Locke will be able to live up to the potential of its premise.
According to Screen Daily, filming begins later this month in London. Hardy recently signed on to co-star with Noomi Rapace in both Child 44 and an adaptation of Dennis Lehane‘s Animal Rescue. Since shooting begins soon on Locke, Hardy should still be able to do his films with Rapace.
