The movie is based on John Pearson’s true crime book, The Profession of Violence, and is another cinematic endeavor exploiting the notorious, psychotically violent twins and British gangsters Reggie and Ronnie Kray. In this modern effort, both Kray brothers are portrayed by actor Tom Hardy (MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, INCEPTION). Should be interesting and worthy. I hope.
There have been a host of docs and etc. films about the bad Brit brothers, but most well known is probably the THE KRAYS (1990) played by the real life twin brothers (Gary & Martin Kemp –– the guitarist and bassist, respectively) from the 80s new-romantic super-group SPANDAU BALLET.
Guess we'll see how good LEGEND and TOM HARDY really are, whenever the film legitimately hits the theaters.
