Watch: Tom Hardy Plays Twin Mobsters in Stylish 'Legend' Trailer

Writer/director Brian Helgeland follows up “42” with British organized crime thriller “Legend,” inspired by John Pearson’s book “Profession of Violence.” Hardy plays the two notorious Kray brothers opposite Aussie actress Emily Browning and English actor Christopher Eccleston (wonderful as a fanatical preacher on HBO’s “The Leftovers”).

Helgeland won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar in 1998 for his wickedly clever James Ellroy noir “LA Confidential,” directed by Curtis Hanson. He was nominated in 2005 for penning Clint Eastwood’s crime melodrama “Mystic River.” “Legend” opens in the UK on September 11, suggesting an awards bid, but no US release date has been set. Working Title will handle the film’s imminent US release.
