Someone after my own heart has finally figured out how to squeeze even more Tom Hardy into a single film – have him play his own twin. Hardy pulls pouty-lipped double duty as Ronnie and Reggie Kray in Legend, from director Brian Helgeland (42, A Knight’s Tale), a movie about London gangstas, innit. Cor bloimey, guv, dat puntah’s da most ‘ansome cont Oy’ve evah focken seen.
As an additional twist, one of the twins swings both ways. Jesus, did they steal this story from my diary? I think I just grew a Max Rockatansky in my pants. I’ll see it already, jeez. Legend opens October 2nd. Though if I’m being honest, I sort of wish the movie was just a two hour trailer of Tom Hardy beating people up and talking funny while rock music played.
