Hardy hurts ankle on Legend set

Tom Hardy has reportedly injured his ankle as he filmed scenes for crime thriller Legend.

The Locke star, who is playing notorious London gangster twins Ronnie and Reggie Kray in the biopic, was said to have been rushed to hospital after hurting his ankle during a fight scene.

A source told The Sun: "Tom went over on it pretty hard. He's a tough guy but you could tell he was in pain. They didn't take any chances and carted him off to hospital for an X-ray."

Tom's injury comes after Harrison Ford was hurt on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII.

Legend, which is written and directed by Brian Helgeland, is based on John Pearson's book, The Profession Of Violence. It is scheduled for release in 2015.

Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Chazz Palminteri, Tara Fitzgerald and Taron Egerton, also have roles in the film, which charts the tortured and unique relationship between the brothers as they embark on a reign of terror in 1960s gangland London.
