Tom Hardy has signed on to star in new Netflix film from Gangs Of London co-creator Gareth Evans.

Titled Havoc, the film will see Hardy, who lives in London, take on the role of a detective rescuing a politician’s son while unraveling a web of corruption in his city.

Evans, who is also the filmmaker behind The Raid and The Raid 2, will write and direct Havoc, while Hardy will also produce.

It will be the first of a series of projects that Evans will produce and direct for the streaming giant over the next several years.

Filming looks set to start in late June in Europe.

Evans burst on the scene with his Indonesian martial arts flicks Marantau and The Raid, taking it to epic levels with the latter’s expansive sequel, The Raid 2.

His last work was Gangs of London, a gritty crime saga he co-created, that aired on Sky and AMC.

Hardy is next due on the big-screen with Venom: Let There Be Carnage in which he reprises his role as the Spider-Man anti-hero.

The Sony picture is currently scheduled for a June 25, 2021 opening.
