Tom Hardy Suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in ‘Samarkand’
Actor Tom Hardy apparently doesn’t believe in taking time off. In 2012, Hardy made three films, including The Dark Knight Rises, This Means War and Lawless. Now, he’s off and running to four new films, a thriller called Locke, Child 44 a film about Mount Everest and one called Animal Rescue, as well as an adaptation of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell video game.
If those weren’t enough, Deadline Hollywood reports that Hardy is helping to develop and will star in Samarkand, which is directed by Greg Williams. Williams wrote the script with his brother Olly.
In Samarkand, Hardy will a Special Air Service soldier who has returned from serving in the Middle East. He is trying to re-adjust to normal life but suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. This film is the first for Williams, who is a famous photographer. He did direct a short film entitled Sergeant Slaughter, My Big Brother which also starred Hardy. The short won some Best Director awards in New York, Chicago and San Francisco.
