Tom Hardy To Star In Real-Time Thriller Locke From Eastern Promises’ Stephen Knight

Stephen Knight is a particularly interesting screenwriter with some great films already under his belt, including Dirty Pretty Things and Eastern Promises, and his directorial debut, the Jason Statham thriller Hummingbird, is coming along for release later in the year.

It’s the one and only Jason Statham film that has my attention – at least until he gets cast as Rocket Raccoon.

Next for Knight is going to be Locke. The key to this one (wahey!) is that it’s a 90-minute real time thriller that revolves around a character played by Tom Hardy.

There aren’t many other details as yet, but Screen Daily say that the thriller is kick-started by a phone call. What kind of call could fire up ninety exciting minutes of Tom Hardy in action? It’s probably more likely to be a kidnapping or ransom thing than one of those PPI cold calls. Probably. Depends on his temper, I suppose.

If real-time suggests a lot of running around – that used to be a common combination at least, before Buried and Silent House and their knock-offs – then I think Knight’s a good pick. He’s always been one for creating a strong sense of urban space, worlds of layered, interwoven cultures. Having Tom Hardy run through the different worlds of the city seems like a good prospect.

Locke is going to shoot next month and Joe Wright is among its producers. I look forward to finding out more.
