Cast: Tom Hardy, Emily Browning, Taron Egerton
From Academy Award® winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River) and Working Title (The Theory of Everything) comes the true story of the rise and fall of London’s most notorious gangsters, Reggie and Ronnie Kray, both portrayed by Tom Hardy in an amazing double-barrelled performance.
Together, the Kray Twins take over the city. But as their reign expands, power-struggles, fierce madness, and a woman diminishes their bond; the weak link that could cause their empire to collapse. LEGEND takes us into the secret history of the 1960s and the extraordinary events that secured the infamy of the Kray twins.
“The Old East End and the Swinging Sixties are long gone, and so are its doppelgängers, the Krays; all of it slipped into the alchemy of legend. Lies abound, the facts are elusive, but some truth can still be found… “
Brian Helgeland, Director
