The Drop
"Tom was intensely inquisitive," screenwriter Dennis Lehane told USA Today about Tom Hardy's turn. "He mined every single piece of marrow out of that character." And those are encouraging words to hear about "The Drop," the forthcoming film that brings together a helluva ensemble for a tale rich with possibility.

The Drop
Last year, we lost one of the greats with the sudden passing of James Gandolfini. But lucky for us, he still had a couple movies coming that demonstrated he was an actor who had so much more to explore. Last fall, he showed a charmingly softer, gentler side in the underrated "Enough Said" and this fall, he hits the hard streets of Boston in "The Drop." If you haven't heard of it, you may remember it under its former title "Animal Rescue," but either way, it's coming and a batch of new stills has arrived to give a bit of taste.

Mad Max: Fury Road
With production starting in 2012, reshoots taking place last fall, and a lengthy post-production process that won't see the movie released until next fall, as of right now there aren't many details about George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road." It's a return to the Aussie franchise with Tom Hardy now taking the name Max Rockatansky, but a new peek has arrived.

How do you make a movie about a guy driving a car for an hour, talking on his cell phone, compelling? Well, you get Tom Hardy to lead and Steven Knight to write and direct it, and if you're lucky enough, you wind up with something like "Locke."

Ronald and Reginald Kray Tom Hardy
For a little while now, Tom Hardy has been attached to play "Capone" in the film set to be directed by David Yates. Plans were fairly ambitious, with talk of a trilogy at one time, but with the director now busy on "Tarzan" (sigh) it looks a long way off. But Hardy will get to scratch his gangster itch twice over.

"I'd just finished the [Jason] Statham picture ['Redemption'], which was very conventional. And the whole process just made me think to look again at the basics of what the job is: get a load of people into a room, turn off the lights and get them to watch a screen for 90 minutes, and how many other ways there are, without using all the tricks that normally go with a film," writer/director Steven Knight told us at the Göteborg International Film Festival earlier this month.

So, do you want to spend 90 minutes with Tom Hardy? Then "Locke" should fit the bill. The single setting, real time drama/thriller is nothing more than the actor in a car, talking on a telephone, and yet writer/director Steven Knight has crafted something truly special here, and gets a terrific turn out of his lead actor.

So much television, so little time. One show I've been meaning to catch up with is BBC's "Peaky Blinders," the gangster drama set in the days after World War I that follows the deeds of the dangerous kingpin Tommy Shelby, played by none other than Cillian Murphy. That's right, Cillian Murphy is leading a TV show and I'm somehow not watching it. Well, it looks like some fresh incentive has arrived for everyone to start catching up.

Black Mass Johnny Depp Tom Hardy
At one time set to be directed by Barry Levinson with Johnny Depp and Joel Edgerton starring, the Whitey Bulger drama "Black Mass" was shut down and seemed like one of those projects that may be forever troubled. Well, scratch that. Last month, it burbled back to life with Depp circled and "Out Of The Furnace" director Scott Cooper attached to helm, and just a couple of weeks later, the project is moving full steam ahead.
