    Tom Hardy's Al Capone Flick 'Cicero' Still Moving Forward, New Writer Hired To Pen Script

    We're two years from the first announcements about "Cicero," a gangster flick at Warner Bros. that would see Tom Hardy take on the role of Al Capone. Cool, right? There was early talk of the project expanding into a trilogy, but that has died down along with most news about the project. Last we hear...

    Tom Hardy Preparing To Play Al Capone In David Yates' Trilogy 'Cicero'; Film(s) Aiming For 2013 Start

    Tom Hardy May Play Al Capone In David Yates' 'Cicero' (That May Turn Into A Trilogy)

With lucrative franchise finished (for now), and with the Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy set to finish in 2012 with "The Dark Knight Rises," Warner Bros. is suddenly seeing two of their biggest moneymakers waving goodbye (though yes, they do have two "The Hobbit" films in their back pocket). Hoping that Yates can ...

    Gangster Flicks Are The New Fairy Tale Movies, Apparently: Duelling Capone Films In Development

    Once every six months or so, the Hollywood Elders, the shadowy collection of media moguls, Freemasons, Jewish lizardmen and Warren Beatty that control the film industry, don their robes, gather in their secret chamber under the Hollywood sign and plot out their agenda. Sometimes, it's elevating a particular actor or actress for no apparent reason -- Alex Pettyfer was a homeless 37-year-old drifter until they surgically re-sculpted him into the hottest young actor in Hollywood (though he's on his way to torpedoing that all by himself). Sometimes it's pushing technological breakthroughs -- 48 FPS cameras? Developed in their lair. And sometimes ...

    David Yates Eyed For Al Capone Pic 'Cicero'

    Warner Bros. has a thing for crime pics and it's easy to see why. They got Oscar gold for "The Departed" and Ben Affleck's "The Town" was a surprising smash hit at the box office so no wonder they want to feed audience hunger for pics focusing on the seedy criminal underbelly. Ruben Fleischer's "Tal...
