Acclaimed screenwriter Brian Helgeland has had masses of success with his written and directorial work in some capacity on numerous films like Curtis Hanson’s L.A. Confidential, the 2000 Mel Gibson crime comedy Payback and actor Chadwick Boseman’s 2013 hit, 42 to name a few. Not resting on his laurels though, he’s back with actor Tom Hardy in a new flick that takes us back to the roaring 50’s and 60’s when a pair of twins ruled the town, based on Helgeland’s adaptation of author John Pearson’s 1972 novel.
From Academy Award® winner Brian Helgeland comes the true story of the rise and fall of London’s most notorious gangsters, Reggie and Ron Kray, both portrayed by Tom Hardy in an amazing double performance. LEGEND is a classic crime thriller taking us into the secret history of the 1960s and the extraordinary events that secured the infamy of the Kray Twins.
