Washington: ‘Dunkirk’ star Tom Hardy is unrecognisable as gangster Al Capone – the character he is playing in his upcoming film ‘Fonzo’.
Writer-director Josh Trank took to Twitter to share Hardy’s still in which he wears heavy prosthetics. Wearing a striped shirt and blue satin robe, the ‘Dark Knight Rises’ star can be seen smoking a cigar in the tough look.
‘Fonzo’ will portray the final days of the legendary gangster’s life, for which the 40-year-old Hardy had to undergo quite a transformation. He had previously shared shots of himself as Capone.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story of the film picks up with Capone at the age of 47, when dementia has rotted his mind, following nearly a decade of imprisonment. The release date of the film has not been announced as yet.
