Before he was Loki, Tom Hiddleston was just another Brit actor trying to make it and early on he formed a bond with filmmaker Joanna Hogg. He appeared in her 2007 indie "Unrelated," and three years later starred in her sophomore feature "Archipelago." And while the world is now an oyster for the actor, and he likely has many more offers on his desk than ever before, he's reuniting with Hogg for her next film.

Hiddleston will feature alongside Viv Albertine -- former guitarist for punk legends The Slits who also contributed a song to "Archipelago" -- and conceptual artist Liam Gillick in the currently untitled movie. And if you're wondering what on Earth is bringing together a superhero villain, punk rocker and a Turner Prize nominee, your guess is as good as ours, as plot details are being kept on the down low. "I continue to be fascinated by the blurred line between the comic and the horrendous - but depicting this in an ordinary, everyday context which is closer to home, and therefore more terrifying," is all Hogg would venture in a press release.

The plan is for the movie to shoot in London for six weeks this fall, after which we presume Hiddleston will put on the horns again for "Thor: The Dark World." We're certainly intrigued, and we'll hopefully won't be waiting too long to see what drew Hiddleston back to Hogg for the third time. [THR]

    This is great news.I have been following Tom's film career with interest.I loved both of Joanna Hoggs films because of the subltety in the depth of the emotions and the acting she elicits from the cast.Since the arrival of the marvelous Loki, Tom has made some brave and interesting film choices but he never fails to give us a multi dimensional and nuanced performance.My only wish now is after reading about his award winning and critically acclaimed stage performances is to see him back in see him on stage as well as in another Joanna Hogg film.

    that's fantastic! Tom Hiddleston is a hell of a good actor, and Joanna Hogg movies are maybe a bit difficult but very special. It is very sweet how they keep working together, like she wouldn't make a movie without him and he wouldn't let her down no matter how famous and busy he got.

    I love him and think he's a fascinating and very talented performer and I think it is amazing how loyal he is.

    @disliker of ham: you suck, you can't appreciate how talented he is

    Horrible actor. Hammy , very very hammy.

    I don't like ham either, but Tom isn't hammy. He's like nutmeg. His talent is brought out in different ways by different directors, and Joanna Hogg has so far gone for very contrasting roles for him to play. Edward and Oakley are nothing alike. He's an actor with what is clearly a broad range of skills that he applies to each character he plays.

    However you chose the word 'horrible' as well. Hammy I could have lived with, but horrible? Have you met him? Have you seen much of his acting? Watch the Hollow Crown and call him horrible then, I dare you. I bet you wouldn't be able to. Watch the entire series, and dare you not to respect him.
