Tom Hardy is Heading Back Into Battle With ‘My War Gone By, I Miss It So’

Tom Hardy can currently be seen (partially, anyway) in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk as a courageous air force pilot defending beached troops from air raids. His next project takes him back into war, in what sounds like a much more substantial and challenging role, in My War Gone By, I Miss It So.

Variety broke the news about the adaptation of Anthony Loyd’s firsthand account of the Bosnian War. Judging by this description, the film has about a dozen different, harrowing plates in the air:

“My War Gone By, I Miss It So” is Lloyd’s personal account of the Bosnian War, and alternates between his experiences in Bosnia and personal reflections of his time in the British army, his parents’ divorce, his estrangement from his father, and his heroin addiction.

As much as I love gimmick Tom Hardy, hidden behind masks in The Dark Knight Rises and most of Mad Max and Dunkirk, or behind the wheel through the entirety of Locke, I love Tom Hardy the actor even more. He was the best part of The Revenant, he was terrific in The Drop, and he was captivating in Warrior.

And speaking of Warrior, Gavin O’Connor will direct My War Gone By, I Miss It So. Hardy could be aiming for an Oscar with this one, but whatever… We don’t have release date, co stars, or production news yet, but stay tuned..
