The ever-busy Tom Hardy is reteaming with director Greg Williams for Samarkand, a drama which deals with the issue of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), focusing on a SAS soldier returning from a tour of duty in the Middle East, who has trouble finding his way in civilian society.
Samarkand will mark the feature directorial debut for a celebrated photographer, Williams who previously directed a short called Sergeant Slaughter, My Big Brother, which starred Hardy and won a few Best Director accolades for Williams at film festivals in New York, San Francisco and Chicago.
Scribed by Greg and Olly Williams, a role will give Hardy a chance to show some different sides to his talents as he can absolutely handle the dramatic challenges of the role.
No word when this will happen.
As of now, Hardy is about to start filming on the adaptation of Dennis Lehane‘s Animal Rescue opposite Noomi Rapace and is also co-starring with Rapace in the Soviet thriller Child 44. His slate also includes video game adaptation Splinter Cell, the real-time thriller Locke, and the drama Everest for director Doug Liman.
