The Long Red Road

Tom Hardy and Michael Shannon

Variety reports that, yes, dreams do come true, and Tom Hardy and Michael Shannon will soon star together in a movie in which they will play no less than actual brothers (insert Warrior joke here). The pair will star in a big screen adaptation of Brett C. Leonard‘s play The Long Red Road, which will see Hardy reprising the role he originated in the stage version back in 2010. The play centers on Hardy’s Sammy, a drunk who seems bent on pulling of a Leaving Las Vegas maneuver, and is attempting to drink himself to death on an Indian reservation in South Dakota. Shannon will play his brother, Bob. Leonard himself will adapt his play for the screen. Interestingly enough, Shannon also has a background on the stage, and though he has not performed in Road previously, many of his theatrical ties are also rooted in the Chicago scene from which it emerged.
