Even though it’s only a small role, one of the big draws of the upcoming British musical “London Road” is that we get to see Tom Hardy participate.
Based on the stage show with the entire original London cast landing roles in the movie, the true story tale ties into the real life murder of five sex workers in Ipswich in 2006. When a local resident was charged, and then convicted, the community grappled with what it meant to be at the heart of this tragedy.
The film uses the actual words of the residents of London Road, and sets it to an innovative musical score. “Broadchurch” alum Olivia Colman leads the cast while Rufus Norris helms the project which opens September 9th.
