Tom Hardy has signed on to star in and produce a post-Vietnam biker drama. The film, which is currently untitled, has been written by Mark L. Smith and is based on an original idea from John Linson.
Warner Bros. is currently housing the project and it follows a “wounded Vietnam veteran who returns home to San Francisco at the height of unrest of 1969. Amid clashing cultures of the Haight-Ashbury district, he emerges to become the leader of California’s most violent outlaw biker club.”
Art Linson and John Linson of Linson Entertainment are producing alongside Hardy via his new production company, Executive Options.
For Sons Of Anarchy fans this concept may seem rather familiar, it’s quite similar to what Sons Of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter is currently looking at as a possible prequel series to his hit show. Funnily enough, John and Art Linson are Sons Of Anarchy executive producers so there may indeed be some kind of connection here.
Anyways, Tom Hardy starring in a post-Vietnam bikie film sounds like a wicked idea and I can’t wait to see how this one develops.
