We've been getting slivers of information about Tom Hardy's upcoming flick, Fonzo, about the legendary gangster Al Capone.
The British actor had shared a few behind-the-scenes pictures of him getting into character, but now we've been given our first real look at what's to be expected.
Sporting a red robe and receding hairline, Hardy can be seen aboard a boat with a fishing rod and a rifle as well as smoking a cigar. If you were walking past this moment there's no way you'd think that was the forever-awesome star of Mad Max: Fury Road and Venom.
The pictures were captured in New Orleans, Louisiana where Fonzo is being filmed.
Fonzo is set to focus on Capone's final years. After finally winding up in prison for tax evasion, including a stint in Alcatraz, Capone became increasingly disorientated and tormented by his past due to his suffering from untreated syphilis.
By the time of his release, Capone was a withered figure and lived the last years of his life quietly in his mansion before dying of a heart attack in 1947. He was only 48.
With a life story like that, Fonzo isn't exactly going to be cheery stuff, but if anyone can accurately capture the darkness of Capone's final years, you'd suspect it'd be Hardy. He's not shied away from playing hard, brutish men like Charles Bronson and the Kray twins.
"Once a ruthless businessman and bootlegger who ruled Chicago with an iron fist, Al Capone was the most infamous and feared gangster of American lore," the synopsis of Fonzo reads.
"At the age of 47, following nearly a decade of imprisonment, dementia rots Al's mind and his past becomes present as harrowing memories of his violent and brutal origins melt into his waking life."
Fonzo has been in development for a few years now and will be directed by Josh Trank, the guy responsible for the 2012 sci-fi film Chronicle and the Marvel superhero reboot Fantastic Four.
Also starring in the film, which is due for release this year, are Matt Dillon as Johnny, Linda Cardellini as Mae Capone, Noel Fisher as Junior and Kyle MacLachlan as Karlock.
Hardy himself certainly feels like he has a wide range of skills and experiences to aid his acting chops.
Asked in an interview with GQ in 2015 whether there was any element of danger in him, he said: "I've got a history of non-judgmental complete recklessness. So, it's not that I can't draw from sources. And I would be foolish not to in my work.
"It's gotta go somewhere. But it's quite an open book. And I'm not really putting it on, either. Certainly not to a huge level. There's things I haven't really experienced, so I'm just acting."
We have no doubt he'll pull out the goods for Fonzo.
