First look as Tom Hardy as twin kingpins in “Legend” thriller

PanARMENIAN.Net - The first photo of Tom Hardy in Brian Helgeland's Legend has been unveiled, Digital Spy said.

Brian Helgeland's thriller will see the Bronson star play both Ron and Reggie Kray, the twin brothers who ruled over London's East End criminal underworld in the '50s and '60s.

Emily Browning also features in the cast of the film as Frances Shea, Reggie's estranged wife who died in 1967.

An inquest ruled that she committed suicide, however a former lover of Reggie claimed that Ron killed Frances in a jealous rage.

The gangsters' exploits were previously explored in 1990's The Krays. Spandau Ballet stars Martin and Gary Kemp played the roles of Reggie and Ronnie respectively.

David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Taron Egerton, Tara Fitzgerald and Chazz Palminteri round out the supporting cast for Legend, which is shooting in London now.
