Tom Hardy is in negotiations to play as Al Capone in the upcoming gangland flick ‘Cicero’ directed by David Yates.

The Bane of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, Tom Hardy is reportedly in negotiation with Warner Bros Studios to play a role in the upcoming movie ‘Cicero’. If he is finalized, he will play the character of Al Capone.

Warner Bros has announced about the project long back, when another mobster based drama flick ‘The Gangster Squad’ was getting together. Walon Green of ‘Wild Bunch’ provides the script for the movie, based on his own unused TV pilot.

The story of the movie centers on the young Al Capone, who rises to power, who moves from the slums of Brooklyn, to the top of a food chain in Chicago of prohibition-era. As per the reports, the upcoming flick ‘Cicero’ is being planned to be made in to a trilogy.

The first part of the movie will focus on the rise of Al Capone and the second will focus on tracking his reign and the third would follow his downfall. David Yates of ‘Harry Potter’ is believed to direct the movie.

According to the sources, the development of the project is still in initial stage and neither Tom Hardy nor David Yates has been signed for the movie yet. Hardy is well known for his roles in ‘Inception’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’.

Tom Hardy has been set by Warner Bros to play the role of Mad Max in their movie ‘Fury Road’, which will be directed by George Miller, who is planning to start the production next year.
