Hardy has not been seen in any feature film since ‘Capone’, released in May 2020, and could not get a wider release because of the pandemic. However, he would like to forget about the movie as it did not receive positive reviews from the critics as well as audiences.

The movie chronicles the journey of a bruised detective who finds himself wandering through the criminal underworld to rescue a politician’s estranged son. The official synopsis reads: “After a drug deal has gone wrong, a bruised detective must fight his way through a criminal underworld to rescue a politician's estranged son while unraveling a deep web of corruption and conspiracy that ensnares his entire city.”
As of now, only Tom Hardy has been confirmed as one of the cast members for ‘Havoc’. We can expect other stars to join the movie in the upcoming weeks.
Hardy is undoubtedly one of the greatest actors of this generation and has given many award-worthy performances in his illustrious career. Born in 1977, Edward Thomas Hardy is an English actor, who made his film debut from the 2001 movie ‘Black Hawk Down’. In 2002, he was cast as ‘Star Trek: Nemesis’ as Shinzon. The actor worked on a wide range of projects between 2002 and 2008.
The year 2008 turned out to be a career-defining for him as he featured in three movies that garnered a lot of critical acclaims. However, the movie that cemented his place in the industry was ‘Bronson’. He played the role of Charles Bronson, a young man who was sentenced to seven years in prison for robbing a post office ends up spending three decades in solitary confinement.
In 2010, he would appear in Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster movie ‘Inception’. The film turned out to be a huge success and was nominated for eight Oscars, including best picture. It emerged victorious in four categories, including best cinematography and best sound editing.
He has since been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for ‘The Revenant’, two Critics' Choice Movie Awards, and two BAFTA Awards, receiving the 2011 BAFTA Rising Star Award. ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, ‘Peaky Blinders’, ‘Locke’, ‘Dunkirk’ and ‘Venom’ are some of the movies he worked on over the years.
‘Havoc’ is being helmed by Gareth Evans, who gained prominence after directing the Indonesian action-thriller 'The Raid'. The film received universal acclaim and prompted the filmmaker on directing a sequel, titled ‘The Raid 2’, in 2014. Evans has signed an exclusive deal with Netflix to produce and direct films for the studio for the next several years. Havoc will be the first feature under the new creative partnership.
Evans, Ed Talfan, and Aram Tertzakian will produce the project for One More One Productions, Severn Screen, and XYZ Films. Hardy will serve as an executive producer.
