Tom Hardy is unrecognisable as Al Capone in new biopic Fonzo

Here’s another much more detailed look at Tom Hardy as Al Capone.

The British actor will play the iconic mob boss in forthcoming film Fonzo, which will be directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle, Fantastic Four) and will follow Capone’s final years.

The filmmaker has now shared a new pic of Hardy in character – cigar and all.

Production on the film began in March, with an Instagram post offering fans their first glimpse as Hardy in character as the legendary mob boss, alongside director Josh Trank and Boardwalk Empire‘s Capone, Stephen Graham.

Another glimpse at the actor in costume was also posted to Hardy’s Instagram in April, while an image of Hardy actually filming scenes as the mob boss surfaced the following month.

The actor could be seen aboard a boat, dressed in pyjamas and smoking a cigar (again) in front of the American flag. It’s safe to say he looks very different.

Fonzo will uniquely tell the tale of Capone’s ultimate demise, having been released from prison after suffering from dementia (brought on by syphilis), as he is haunted by memories of his violent past.

The film will co-star Matt Dillon, Twin Peaks actor Kyle MacLachlan, Linda Cardellini and Jack Lowdon, all of whom have yet to be pictured in costume.

Hardy’s casting in the biopic follows a string of high-profile roles in Oscar-nominated films including The Revenant and Dunkirk.

It also follows his work on Sony’s Venom film, which stars Hardy in the titular role alongside Jenny Slate, Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed and will be released on October 5.
