McG’s rom-com “This Means War” was widely panned upon release. Tom Hardy, Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon starred in the action-oriented romantic comedy about two CIA agents and best friends who fall for the same woman.
While the genre was familiar stuff for Witherspoon and Pine, it marked a change of scene for Hardy who is best known for more dramatic work. Out doing press for “The Drop,” Hardy tells USA Today he has no plans to return to the rom-com genre and described his experience making ‘War’:
“I love to do things I hadn’t done before. I didn’t understand how you could do something which is so much fun and be so miserable doing it. I probably won’t do a romantic comedy again, do you know what I mean?”
Hardy also says he’s seen all of George Miller’s upcoming “Mad Max: Fury Road” in which he stars, but as the film is still in post-production it is “constantly evolving.”
