In light of the “Unofficial Tom Hardy Calendar” (complete with Logan Marshall Green pictured for November!) that Tom recently discovered, we have been given the green light to create our own officially unofficial calendar! After all, what’s more officially unofficial than Tom Hardy dotorg? All proceeds from the Officially Unofficial Tom Hardy Calendar will be donated to the charity of Tom’s choice. Stay tuned for more details!

Noomi Rapace talks about Child 44 and working with Tom in The Independent:
Child 44 is the first part of the spy trilogy written by the British author Tom Rob Smith.
First published in 2008, the books are based on the crimes of Andrei Chikatilo, the Rostov Ripper, who was convicted and executed for committing at least 52 murders in the Soviet Union between 1978 and 1990. Transplanted to the Stalin era, the thriller sees an idealistic, pro-Stalin security officer and his wife investigate a series of child murders despite the wishes of the state.
If the plot sounds like it could be a job for the girl with the dragon tattoo, Rapace insists she was attracted to the role because it was a very different part for her. “She is not tough, not cool, she’s very feminine and normal. She’s a school teacher and quite cold, not fiery at all. Nonetheless, I think that all the characters that I play always bleed into my life and take over my life a lot. I find that I can’t do things even halfway or tactical. It feels like the character moves in and stays there for the whole shoot. It’s not like people need to call me the character name, but I can’t really distance myself.”
The script for Child 44 was first handed to Rapace by Ridley Scott. The British-born director was due to direct the project before deciding to serve the film as a producer. Like most of Hollywood, the director was determined to cast the actress after he saw her Bafta-nominated turn in the Millennium trilogy. “I met Ridley and he said, ‘I’m a fan of yours and I loved The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and I would like to work with you,’ and I was like, I’m going to die now! He gave me the script for Child 44, so it was the one of the first American scripts that I read.”
Directed by Daniel Espinosa, Child 44 also stars the British star Tom Hardy. Hardy and Rapace can also be seen working together on the upcoming The Drop, based on the Dennis Lehane short story “Animal Rescue”. “I met Tom two years previously and we were looking for something to work on,” she says. “What was really great was that we know each other really well, and we really trust each other, so we don’t need to be polite, we don’t need to start from zero. We could just melt into the next one. We had so much for free. It felt like we were this gypsy family coming from New York with all our family and the next stop was Prague.”
During the early summer, no doubt fuelled by their having worked together on two films consecutively and their friendship, there were rumours that Hardy had left his long-term girlfriend, the actress Charlotte Riley, and fallen into the arms of Rapace. These were unsubstantiated and quickly killed off as Hardy attended several high-profile events, such as the recent British Independent Film Awards, with his fiancée.
TOM HARDY AND HIS HATS 94 - 102 of ??? (request by: toothpicard)
A bit of Mt Everest film news. The competing Working Title film, which grabbed the title Everest, has begun production, while the Sony/Doug Liman Mallory film, with Tom Hardy still possibly attached, has been pushed to either early summer or even to 2015. And it has been retitled The Summit. Sounds like they are trying to make the schedule work with Tom. It’s a phenomenal role that he seems born to play, but with the other film already shooting, timing is now definitely an issue.
________________________________________________________Dueling Everest movies: Jake Gyllenhaal film begins shooting; Sony’s ‘The Summit’ still in base camp
When it comes to ascending a summit, first to the top usually wins. News this week confirmed that Working Title’sEverest, to be released by Universal, is a go. The film, from director Baltasar Kormákur (2 Guns) began production Monday in Italy, with Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke and John Hawkes playing four of the climbers who attempted the disastrous 1996 ascent of Mount Everest in the Himalayas, only to be thwarted with terrible conditions that led to the loss of many lives.
Now that this film is in production, will it kill a competing Everest film at Sony?
Sony declined to comment on its project, which takes place in the 1920s and chronicles British climber George Mallory’s attempts to scale the world’s tallest mountain. One source close to the production says the studio is still committed to the movie, but the film, which Doug Liman (Mr. and Mrs. Smith) is set to direct after finishing the upcoming Tom Cruise-starrer Edge of Tomorrow, will no longer begin production in the next couple of months as originally planned.
Rather, the start date on the film — which now carries the title The Summit andstill has Tom Hardy (Inception) attached to play Mallory and Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6) to play his Australian rival George Finch — has been pushed to either early summer or perhaps even to 2015.
According to another source, the studio’s hesitation on the project centers on concern over how to sell the the film domestically. Overseas, the film’s prospects appear much healthier considering the storyline and international cast but in the U.S. audiences are often reluctant to give period films a chance.
Complicating matters, a schedule change may force star Hardy to drop out. As reported earlier, Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) is still interested in the lead role should Hardy need to leave.
Sony is also being more cost conscious after a rough 2013 and launching a $60 million movie with a competing film in the pipeline may not look too appealing. Last summer the studio was on the wrong end of dueling White House disaster movies. Their White House Down with Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx opened at the end of June, earning $73 million. It had followed Film District’s Olympus Has Fallen, whichopened in March and grossed $98 million.
Still, sources close to the project says the film, which was scripted by Sheldon Turner (Up in the Air), is still important to the studio.
The trick now is to keep that enthusiasm from falling off the mountain.
Another release date, yay! This time for The Drop (formerly Animal Rescue). But why so far away? :(
I hope this could mean it’ll be at Cannes - that would be perfect. :)
One more of Tom & Benedict in Stuart a Life Backwards. Just because. :)
