Tom Hardy set to scale Everest
Hardy is also lined up to play George Mallory in a feature film about the conquest of Mount Everest. LA-based production company Apartment 3B has told us that the project is eyeing a spring 2014 shoot, with locations to be confirmed, although Canada is on the shortlist.
Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) directs Everest; he also produces alongside David Bartis for Hypnotic and Jennifer Klein.
And Hardy has also been mooted to star in The Outsider, set in post-World War II Japan and directed by Takashi Miike.
