Tom Hardy And Michael Shannon To Star In The Long Red Road image
Be aware, DC Comics fans. Bane is teaming up with General Zod. Prepare for the ultimate dose of intimidation.

Tom Hardy and Michael Shannon have reportedly been cast in The Long Red Road, an adaptation of the play by Brett C. Leonard. The play ran at the Goodman Theater in Chicago in 2010 with Philip Seymour Hoffman directing and Tom Hardy starring. Hardy will once again be playing Sam, a man who tries to drink his life away while on an Indian reservation in South Dakota. This pattern is interrupted when Sam runs into a man from his past and he finds himself reevaluating everything. Itís unknown if Hoffman will direct the feature as well. Shannon will play Samís brother.

Variety says that the movie is being produced by Paul Neesan and Richard Fant, who is best known as a Houston steel magnate. Neesan and Fant recently formed the production house Whipsmart and The Long Red Road will be their first feature.

Hardy, of course, most recently starred as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, but will be in yet another film on the big screen soon enough as Lawless will be in theaters on August 29th. He is currently in the midst of shooting Mad Max: Fury Road with director George Miller. Shannon, who plays a regular role on the HBO series Boardwalk Empire also has a movie coming out later this month - Premium Rush will be in theaters next week - and next summer he will star as General Zod in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel.
