The film’s not got a studio yet although Ubisoft have apparently spoken to Warner Brothers and Paramount. Ubisoft CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet has said, “Tom Hardy is currently one of the biggest talents in the film industry, and he has a phenomenal ability to take on complex and varied roles with his broad range of acting skills”. Clearly he’s expected a lot from a character who’s essentially a moody man in a wetsuit.
