Al Capone, commonly known as Scarface, was an American crime boss, businessman and co-founder of the Chicago Outfit. His seven-year reign ended when he was 33 years old.

Tom Hardy is undoubtedly the best choice to play the role of the American gangster, considering his performance as Charles Bronson in Bronson, Alfie Solomons in Peaky Blinders and Kray brothers in Legend.

Fonzo will be sharing the story of Capone as his dementia kicks in, showing his violent lifestyle. The official synopsis of the biopic is as follows:

“Once a ruthless businessman and bootlegger who ruled Chicago with an iron fist, Al Capone was the most infamous and feared gangster of American lore.

At the age of 47, following nearly a decade of imprisonment, dementia rots Al’s mind and his past becomes present as harrowing memories of his violent and brutal origins melt into his waking life.”

When Capone was released from prison, he was shrunken because of his decaying health, dying shortly after because of a heart attack in 1947 at the young age of 48.

The movie was in the development for a few years now, and it is due to be directed by the talented Josh Trank, the man who was responsible for the science-fiction blockbuster Chronicle in 2012.
