Tom Hardy Set To Play Ernest Shackleton

Rugged British hunk Tom Hardy is set to play polar explorer Ernest Shackleton in a new biopic about the man being setup at Studiocanal.

“Shackleton” is being dubbed an epic movie about the man’s three British expeditions to the Antarctic and the famed destruction of the Endurance which saw him managing to keep everyone alive in a harrowing journey to safety in sub zero temperatures.

Peter Straughan is writing the script while Studiocanal will fully finance the project. No word on a potential director as yet.
