Share This Article:
For many people a double-dose of Tom Hardy is a dream come true. Well, dream no longer, Legend sees Hardy play both of the infamous Kray twins, Reggie and Ron in a true story of the rise and fall of London’s most notorious gangsters. Of course, this is a story of the Kray’s whose penchant for violence means much of Legend could veer into nightmare territory. Legend promises to be a dark crime thriller, taking viewers into the secret history of the 1960s and the extraordinary events that secured the infamy of the Kray Twins. The latest offering from Academy Award winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River), it is the latest production from Working Title (The Theory of Everything), co-produced by French company StudioCanal and streaming giant Amazon Prime Instant Video. The movie co-stars Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Taron Egerton and Christopher Eccleston. Talking to The National Student earlier this year, Taron Egerton said shooting the film, 'was fantastic; very different to the way I’m used to working, or that I have worked. It was written and directed by Brian Helgeland and he was very excited with the possibility of us improvising and thinking of things off the cuff while we were filming.' "I took the part with actually very few scripted lines, but I knew there was scope for it to grow. I hope my material has survived but I don’t actually know yet, it could easily end up on the cutting room floor, because it is a supporting role, but the experience in making the film was truly, truly wonderful. Tom Hardy is an amazing performer and a truly great bloke. We are both playing slightly mentally-unbalanced men and they are having relationship and it was great fun. It was actually a real laugh and actually the most carefree I’ve been in a film and because the pressure wasn’t on me I could have fun with it. I’m quite proud of it, though I’ve not seen the film yet I am excited to watch it." Legend is released in cinemas on Wednesday 9 September by StudioCanal.
