Vertigo Films will release the movie in Spring 2009
Nicholas Winding Refn will direct the movie. His previous films include the highly controversial and acclaimed PUSHER Trilogy and Fear X with John Turroro.
BRONSON is the evolutionary journey of Mickey Peterson into Britain’s most notorious and dangerous living prisoner CHARLES BRONSON. Originally sentenced to 7 years in prison for burglary, Charles Bronson has been behind bars for 34 years, 30 of which have been spent in solitary confinement. Charlie has forged an outrageous reputation through violence, hostage taking and rooftop protests to become a notorious figure in the British public’s conscious.
Taking the title role of BRONSON will be Bafta nominated actor Tom Hardy (Black Hawk Down, WAZ, RocknRolla) who has been described by critics as one of the most promising young actors today.

I wonder if he's aware of the actor with the same name. There's a premise: longtime confined bad-ass w/ temper steadily brewing gets released from prison and seeks revenge on the movie tough guy that stole his name.

Watched this last night through Netflix.

I had reservations due to the spam posted here as well as the choice of Tom Hardy (that skinny guy from Star Trek: Nemesis???) for the lead roll.

Tom Hardy as Bronson was jaw-dropping a-fucking-mazing.

This guy is going to get some Oscars in the years to come.
