Oh wow, indeed.
The magnificent English actor Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises, Bronson, Inception, The Warrior and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and controversial Japanese director Takashi Miike (Audition, The Bird People of China, Ichi the Killer, The Great Yokai War and 13 Assassins) are rumored to be teaming up for upcoming film The Outsider.
Taking place in the aftermath of WWII, The Outsider tells the story of an American G.I. who, after becoming an American prisoner of war, later works his way up into the ranks of the Yakuza.
How can the prospect of such a film not give film enthusiasts goosebumps?
Based on an original story idea by John Linson (executive producer of Sons of Anarchy), The Outsider was scripted by Andrew Baldwin.
