Tom Hardy can wear many gangster hats. His latest? Al Capone.


The actor took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes image from his upcoming biopic Fonzo, about the infamous Chicago gangsta. In the eery photo, Hardy is seated in a slumped position holding a hat (which resembles one of Capone's iconic fedoras) in what appears to be his dressing room, all the while sporting a shaved head.


He captioned the post, "Chasing Fonzo" alongside various emojis. 

Chasing Fonzo.

Fonzo, directed by Josh Trank, will take a darker angle than most gangster films, as it follows a 47-year-old Al Capone who has already spent 10 years in prison. The movie will include Capone's later years when the infamous gangsta suffered from dementia.


Fonzo currently does not have a scheduled release date.

Chasing Fonzo...?????????????
