Tom Hardy will star in The Outsider, a Silver Pictures’ film that will mark the English-language debut of Japanese director Takashi Miike, who’s in negotiations to direct the Andrew Baldwin script.
It’s an epic story set in post-World War II Japan, chronicling the life of a former American G.I. who becomes part of the Japanese yakuza.
Okay, That’s pretty awesome. I haven’t branched too far into Takashi Miike‘s filmography only having seen 13 Assassins but my god was that a badass film. Plus any inclusion of Tom Hardy is awesome. The dude is a legit actor. Don’t agree? Watch Bronson or Warrior and tell me otherwise. I’m excited for this.
