Tom Hardy transforms himself into America’s most notorious gangster in the first trailer for Josh Trank’s Al Capone biopic. Now entitled Capone (previously Fonzo), the film follows the crime boss at age 47, after he serves an 11-year jail sentence in Atlanta as both time and his crimes catch up to him:

A ruthless businessman and bootlegger who ruled Chicago with an iron fist, Al “Fonzo” Capone (Hardy) was the most infamous and feared gangster of American lore. At the age of 47, following nearly a decade of imprisonment, dementia rots Capone’s mind and his past becomes present as harrowing memories of his violent and brutal origins melt into his waking life.

Joining Hardy are Linda Carellini as wife Mae Capone, Kathrine Narducci as sister Rosie Capone and Matt Dillon as Capone’s best friend, Johnny. Jack Lowden will portray FBI Agent Crawford while Kyle MacLachlan will be taking on the role of Capone’s Dr. Karlock.

The film was initially announced in October 2016, with filming scheduled to begin in 2017 for a 2018 release. Hardy instead suited up for Venom in 2017, and filming was delayed to April 2018 in New Orleans.

Take a look at the trailer above. Capone is set to go straight to streaming on May 12 via Vertical Entertainment and Redbox.
