Tom Hardy is set to lead the real-time thriller, Locke.

The Dark Knight Rises star has apparently signed on for Steven Knight's 90-minute film, which would follow a successful man who has to "race to save his life from unravelling after receiving a mysterious phone call", reported Screen Daily.

Steven, the writer of Eastern Promises, has penned Locke, which he will also direct.

Filming on the thriller, which is in a similar vein to Phone Booth starring Colin Farrell, will begin later this month in London.

Tom, who will next be seen in Mad Max: Fury Road with Charlize Theron, is attached to co-star with Noomi Rapace in both Child 44 and a forthcoming big-screen adaptation of Dennis Lehane's Animal Rescue.

An important executive or critic will be impressed by your efforts. If you're offered an unpaid position as an intern or apprentice, take it. This will lead to professional opportunities you couldn't find through other channels.More
