    'Locke' Writer/Director Steven Knight To Pen 'World War Z' Sequel

    While “World War Z” is now viewed as the modern-day runaway film project and all that implies of ego—hubris, irresponsibility and whatnot—the project began with the best of intentions. Brad Pitt’s Plan B Pictures, the same company that developed and won a Best Picture Oscar for “12 Years A Slave,” w...

    Interview: Tom Hardy & Steven Knight Discuss Their One-Man Gamble In The Risky, Mesmerizing ‘Locke’

    Tom Hardy has defined his career by playing very distinct and willfully hard-as-nails men. His breakthrough came in portraying a sociopathic prison inmate in “Bronson,” then came a flamboyant dream criminal in “Inception,” a taciturn bootlegger in “Lawless,” an intractable UFC pugilist in “Warrior,”...

    Review: Steven Knight's 'Locke' Starring Tom Hardy Is An Impressive Achievement

    Of all the genres, the single location film is perhaps one of the hardest to get right. For one, you need a hell of an actor (or actors) to hold the attention for even the briefest of running times. You also need a story that coherently keeps the actors in place, with enough of a hook to keep you in...

    In Must-See 'Locke,' Tom Hardy Is Under Pressure

    "Locke" is a fully realized high-concept drama carried by Tom Hardy's riveting, naturalistic performance. It could use the help of the right film festival rollout. Unfortunately, it already had the wrong one.

    Review: Existential Thriller 'Locke,' Starring Tom Hardy and His Fabulous Voice

    If you’re going to make a film about a guy taking calls from his car -- and if half of those calls are about concrete -- then you sure as hell better cast a lead actor with command of the screen. This apparently wasn’t lost on writer-director Steven Knight, who wisely got Tom Hardy to take the wheel...

    Brad Pitt Eyes Another WWII Movie, Penned By Steven Knight

    Brad Pitt seems to like WWII movies. Of course, he swaggered around Quentin Tarantino's comic book version of the war in "Inglourious Basterds," and later this year he'll be part of the tank unit in David Ayer's grittier "Fury." And next, it looks like the actor wants to return to the trenches but t...

    Watch: First Trailer For Tom Hardy Thriller 'Locke'

    "I'd just finished the [Jason] Statham picture ['Redemption'], which was very conventional. And the whole process just made me think to look again at the basics of what the job is: get a load of people into a room, turn off the lights and get them to watch a screen for 90 minutes, and how many other...
