Tom Hardy-starrer Capone will probably be moving directly to a streaming support, manager Josh Trank has declared.
The film, which was previously titled Fonzo, is a biopic of the infamous gangster Al Capone. It will chronicle his battle with early-onset dementia which induced him to guess with his previous offenses. Trank, famous for making films like Chronicle and Fantastic Four, shared with the movie’s first trailer on Twitter.
In another article, he also affirmed that the movie is currently likely to emerge on a streaming service May 12 instead of in cinemas as initially intended, because of the present worldwide scenario. “Will be about streaming! Planned as theatrical, but will be on the big screen later this season,” he tweeted.
The manager, however, is to show the streamer that will premiere the film. He had been prosecuted for income tax evasion in 1931 and also imprisoned. He died of dementia at age 47, after almost a decade of imprisonment.
