LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Actor Tom Hardy is set to produce and perhaps star in New Line Cinema's adaption of the acclaimed Vertigo comic book series 100 Bullets.
The sprawling crime series by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso focuses on enigmatic Agent Graves who gives people who have been wronged the chance to extract revenge by handing them an untraceable pistol along with one hundred bullets.
Currently 100 Bullets already has a script ready by Chris Borrelli, whose credits include the horror film The Vatican Tapes.
Vertigo, an imprint of D.C. Comics owned by Warner Bros. is being handled by the studio's New Line Cinema branch after the film distributor handed off all of Vertigo's properties to New Line back in June.
Hardy will again be working with Warner Bros. after staring as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises and playing the iconic Mad Max in this summer's Mad Max: Fury Road
He will next be seen opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in revenge western Revenant out this December.
