Tom Hardy To Star In New Netflix Film From Gangs Of London Creator

We've dearly missed Tom Hardy brightening up our screens over lockdown (well, apart from watching his Bedtime Stories on repeat), but now the British actor is back with a brand new project - and we could not be more excited.

The Venom star, 43, has teamed up with producer and director Gareth Evans for a brand new Netflix film, after Gareth agreed to work alongside the streaming service for a number of new projects.

His first outing for Netflix is titled HAVOC, a gritty drama which sees Tom (who will also serve as producer on the film) as a detective rescuing a politician's son while unravelling a web of corruption in his city.

The project was confirmed by the official NetflixFilm Twitter account. Further details around HAVOC are still to be announced.

It's certainly a change for Tom, who we previously heard on TV trying to make Brussel Sprouts sexy for Marks & Spencer.

We can expect HAVOC to be a gory and gripping outing, with Gareth having served as a director on the popular series Gangs of London, which aired on Sky last year.

The series, known for its intense and blood-drenched scenes, saw the impulsive Sean Wallace (played by Peaky Blinders star Joe Cole) stand in at the head of a powerful crime syndicate after his dad, Finn Wallace, is assassinated.

In other Netflix news, the on-demand giant has confirmed that Tim Burton will be at the helm of a spooky new series that will serve as a spin-off from sitcom classic, The Addams Family.

There, we see her trying to harness her emerging psychic abilities in order to help in the fight against a killer that has descended on her local area.

Plus, she will set off trying to "solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago - all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships of the strange and diverse student body."
