Before Tom Hardy was hanging out with Mel Gibson at the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere, he was granting a long interview to Collider. They already published the parts of the interview where Hardy talks about why he had to quit Suicide Squad and about how he wants to play the Punisher. Now the third part of the interview is out, wherein the former Bane talks about another DC property he’s been secretly “cooking with Warner Bros.” He won’t say which comic book it is, but he drops some hints:
“It’s really good actually, it contains elements of all kinds of stuff. From Ocean’s Eleven, to Batman, you can get all the wrappers out and it would be a big, really cool, Technicolor, Pulp Fiction…It’s a psychological f*ckfest, it’s absolutely awesome. It’s as if you would take Transmetropolitan and make it happen, but it’s not that out there it’s something which is much more real world. It could be like Heat, it could be f*cking awesome.”
A “psychological f*ckfest,” hmm? You had my curiosity, now you have my attention.
He went on to say this mystery project isn’t a movie, but it could be one (or a TV show) if someone wanted to make it happen.
“It’s PRIME real estate which is sitting there right under everybody’s nose that no one’s really thought about yet and it goes TV and movie, it’s awesome. I can’t believe that nobody has even — I know they thought of it but no one has actually blown life into it yet.”
Nobody has “blown” life into it yet, you say? We read you loud and clear, Tom Hardy. He’s obviously talking about playing Bouncing Boy…
Well, at least it’s not Arm Fall Off Boy.
