Legend and The Revenant star Tom Hardy has signed up to play the acclaimed photojournalist Don McCullin in a film adapted from McCullin’s memoir Unreasonable Behaviour.

From the construction of the Berlin Wall through every conflict up to the Falklands War, photographer Don McCullin has left a trail of iconic images. At the Sunday Times Magazine in the 1960s, McCullin's photography made him a new kind of hero. The flow of stories every Sunday took a generation of readers beyond the insularity of post-war Britain and into the recesses of domestic deprivation. When in 1968, a year of political turmoil, the Beatles wanted new pictures, they insisted on using McCullin; when Francis Bacon, whose own career had emerged with depiction of the ravages of the flesh, wanted a portrait, he turned to McCullin.

His work has already been the subject of a documentary featuring McCullin’s acclaimed work for the Observer and the Sunday Times in Vietnam, Biafra, Cyprus and Lebanon where he produced some of the defining images of war.

Hardy is no stranger to portraying biographical roles having recently starred as the Kray twins in Legend and Elton John in Rocketman. We will see Hardy next in Christopher Nolan’s World War II thriller Dunkirk. It will be his third collaboration with Nolan.
