'Dunkirk' Actor Jack Lowden Joins Tom Hardy in Al Capone Biopic 'Fonzo'
Linda Cardellini, Matt Dillon and Kyle MacLachlan also star in the pic from writer/director Josh Trank.
The Tom Hardy-starring Al Capone biopic Fonzo has added Dunkirk actor Jack Lowden to its cast, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Lowden will play the role of Crawford, alongside Linda Cardellini, Matt Dillon, Kyle MacLachlan and Kathrine Narducci. Hardy toplines the feature from writer-director Josh Trank (Fantastic Four), which is set to shoot in New Orleans.
Fonzo will center on the legendary ruthless businessman and bootlegger who ruled Chicago with an iron fist. The pic focuses on Capone when, at the age of 47 and after nearly a decade of imprisonment, dementia rots his mind and his past returns as harrowing memories of his violent and brutal origins haunt him.
Bron Studios is backing the feature, in association with Creative Wealth Media. Aaron L. Gilbert will produce for Bron, along with Russell Ackerman and John Schoenfelder for Addictive Pictures and Lawrence Bender via A Band Apart.
Jason Cloth of Creative Wealth Media will executive produce. CAA and Endeavor Content are handling North American rights for Fonzo, with Bloom handling international sales.
Lowden is repped by UTA and Conway van Gelder Grant.
