Tom Hardy set to play war photographer Don McCullin

Currently busy working once again with Christopher Nolan (Inception) on Dunkirk, Tom Hardy is lining up another new project that will see him heading into combat zones. News arrives via Deadline that he is set to play legendary British war photographer Don McCullin in a new film.

Working Title duo Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan (The Big Lebowski) are producing this one, with Gregory Burke ('71) adapting the script from McCullin's autobiography, Unreasonable Behaviour. 

The book follows McCullin from his early days as a poverty stricken child in London during World War II to his life working for the Sunday Times. From the late 1960s to the early 1980s, he travelled to the likes of Vietnam, Cambodia and Uganda, chronicling the devastating effects of war on both those who fight and those caught up in it.

Hardy has several projects in the works, including miniseries Taboo, which will be on screens next year. He is also attached to two animal poaching dramas and game adaptation Splinter Cell. Dunkirk will land on our screens on 21 July next year.
