Several months ago, Tom Hardy spoke about a secret comic book film he was developing with DC and Warner Bros. He stated that it contained "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 looks like what he may have been talking about was 100 Bullets, which New Line is now developing.

The comic begins by following a man named Agent Graves as he presents several victims with a gun, the identities of those who ruined them, and 100 hundred rounds of untraceable ammunition. The story opens up from there, but I'll save you the details until you read/see the material for yourself. Word is that Tom Hardy will produce and is looking to star in a script written by Chris Borrelli (THE VATICAN TAPES, WHISPER).

Tom Hardy is killing it right now with his film roles, and while I'm bummed he's not taking part in SUICIDE SQUAD, this has much more potential for him as an actor. Either way, here's hoping he decides to take on the lead role and that it doesn't sit in development hell! If done right, this will certainly open up the world of darker comic book adaptations.

Tom Hardy can next be seen playing twin gangsters in LEGEND, which hits theaters on October 2, 2015.

Someone in these talkbacks guessed this a while back when Tom Hardy first mentioned his meeting with WB/DC. Whoever that is, good guess!

This sounds like a great property for Tom Hardy to star in and develop for a franchise. He's killing it on screen right now. I for one am happy that he dropped out of Suicide Squad. As good as the film looks, I think he's better than that material right now. I think he's at a stage in his career where he should be headlining movies on a consistent

I think he's at a stage in his career where he should be headlining movies on a consistent basis, not being relegated to part of an ensemble. And from the looks of the trailer, SS seems to be mostly about Deadshot, Harley Quinn, and Joker with everyone else (including Rick Flagg) playing second fiddle - not the best role for Hardy right now.

I enjoy most of Brian Azzarello's writing, 100 Bullets is defininitely some of his best work. But really, I was sold at the words Tom Hardy and Bullets.

Best Comic Series Ever

Heres the good thing: The 100 issues of 100 Bullets is some of the best comic book writing ever. The comic is amazing for the first 50 issues then after that it takes off and really fleshes out. That being said this should be an HBO or Showtime type show, not a movie. I highly recommend picking up the collected editions as they have delux editions that condense the 100 issues into 5 volumes instead of the original 13 volumes. The only book I enjoyed more then 100 Bullets is Y: The Last Man.

such a great concept. Hadn't heard of it before. They did mention that he was talking about another role in the DCEU. Here is to hoping he would sign up for Jason Todd and play the Red Hood in one of the solo Batman movies (the 2nd I'd hope).
