Tom Hardy tipped to play Jafar in Guy Ritchie’s live-action remake of ‘Alladin’
Tom Hardy and Guy Ritchie have worked together before on Rocknrolla‘ in 2008, inwhich Hardy played his first gay role as gangster ‘Handsome Bob’, but now Tom is tipped to be working with Guy once again, and has been linked to to a huge role in Ritchie’s upcoming remake of Alladin.
Recent reports suggest that Guy Ritchie has approached the ‘Legend‘ actor to play one of Disney’s most evil villains, Jafar.
Disney own the rights to the franchise and the movie is currently in early stages of pre-production, but news of the project and rumours of a dazzling cast are slowly starting to surface, with previous reports linking Will Smith to the role of The Genie, who was played by the late legendary actor Robin Williams in Disney’s 1992 animated classic.
Filming of Aladdin is will start next month in the UK.
