He survived the African deserts for Mad Max: Fury Road and the North American wilderness for The Revenant, now Oscar-nominated Tom Hardy is heading to Antartica for his role as polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton in a biopic being produced by Studiocanal.

The film is being penned by Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (another film Hardy was in) screenwriter, Peter Straughan, who’s most recent film was Our Band Is Crisis starring Sandra Bullock, which happened to be a box office bomb. Peter Straughan wrote 2014’s Frank, starring Michael Fassbender, another one of the writer’s most notable works.

This has all the makings of an Oscar bait performance, however, Hardy was no slouch in 2015. Starring in The Revenant, Mad Max: Fury Road and the British TV series Peaky Blinders. All of which were critically acclaimed and successful in the financial department.

Hardy will be returning to screens twice next year, first in a series named Taboo, produced by Ridley Scott (The Martian), Steven Knight (Locke) and Hardy himself. The actor has been very vocal about his experience on the project, as he had a creative influence off-screen as well as on-screen. He’s been credited with seven writing credits and executive producer credits, maybe suggesting the next step in Hardy’s career as a writer/director.

Furthermore Tom Hardy finds himself yet again teaming up with Christopher Nolan for the third time, in his WWII drama; Dunkirk. The teaser for Dunkirk can be seen below.

Dunkirk stars Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh and Harry Styles. Nolan’s first foray into War will be in cinemas summer 2017.
