San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/20/2013 -- Tom Hardy, famed for his roles in Bronson, Warrior, as well as his latest role as Bane in the latest in the Batman series, is set to work with director Steven Knight for the movie 'Locke'.

The protagonist Ivan Locke is set in his perfect life, with his dream job and perfect family. As often does in movies, one phone call will change his life forever, and will put everything on the line
Knight has set up to begin production within the month in London, with Webster and Heeley producing the piece. CAA is representing the domestic rights.
