Tom Hardy is already in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming war epic Dunkirk. Now, it seems he’s heading back into the genre, playing famous war photographer Don McCullin in a film for Working Title.
The film will reportedly be based on McCullin’s autobiography, Unreasonable Behavior. From the Deadline report:
The book is an unflinching account of McCullin’s journey from a poverty-stricken childhood in wartime London to becoming one of the most famous war photojournalists. Working for the Sunday Times from the late 60’s to the early 80’s, he risked his life to photograph the harsh realities of war from Vietnam, Cambodia, to Biafra and Uganda, one black and white image at a time.
Gregory Burke has adapted the book and McCullin is an executive producer. There’s no news regarding a potential director or any costars, but this has potential to get Hardy an Oscar down the road… Not that he seems like the kind of person who’s caught up in all that.
