Jodie Comer from Killing Eve and Tom Hardy from Peaky Blinders are collaborating on an ambitious new film.
Austin Butler, an Elvis breakout star, will join the cast of The Bikeriders, inspired by the same novel as well as the photography of its author (via Deadline).
As they find kinship and brotherhood together, the film follows a 1960s biker gang in the Midwestern US. Over time, darker impulses take hold of the group and alter their lifestyle.
Jeff Nichols, the filmmaker behind The Bikeriders' film adaptation, is well-known for Matthew McConaughey's coming-of-age story Mud and the US Civil Rights drama Loving, about a groundbreaking interracial marriage legal case.
Comer is fresh off the final season of Killing Eve and completed a one-woman program in the West End this summer.
Comer will begin her first Broadway run in the Great White Way next spring.
Tom Hardy will return in 2022 for the Netflix film Havoc, in which he joins forces with Gangs of London boss Gareth Evans for a journey through the underworld following a drug deal gone wrong. He'll be back for Venom 3.
Steven Knight, the director of Hardy and Peaky Blinders, is now gearing up for the return of Taboo after five years. In the spring, Knight said the second season would be shot "to the end of next year."
Austin Butler, an award winner for his incredible portrayal of Elvis in the biopic this year, is rounding out the cast of The Bikeriders.
Butler is following up Elvis by joining the cast of Dune: Part 2 along with newcomers Florence Pugh, Christopher Walken, and Lea Seydoux.
