Tom Hiddleston Lands Capa Biopic

Tom Hiddleston continues to add to his impressive resume by landing the title role in Capa, a biopic of iconic war photographer Robert Capa. Rising superstar Hiddleston pelaces the previously attached Andrew Garfiel and  joins Gemma Arterton in the cast with Director Paul Andrew Williams taking charge behind the camera. Williams is perhaps best known for London To Brighton but more recently directed Arterton in Song For Marion

Explaining his enthusiasm for the new part Tom recently revealed:

“I look at [Capa’s] life and see it in heroic terms, A Hungarian kicked out of Hungary for writing against Fascism, he moved to Germany where he was kicked out for being Jewish, then he moved to France and from there began a life-long commitment to make a stand against forces of fascism.”

As for how he’s prepping for the new role the handsome British star added:

“As a man he was fantastically charismatic, dynamic, vigorous, exciting and energetic, too, I plan to go to the places he lived, those places he visited, read books about him, study his photographs and, crucially, learn how he took them.”

The project is actually one of several films about Capa currently beginning production, Michael Mann also has Waiting For Robert Capa in the works. But crucially this is the only version to star Loki, so will inevitably be burdened with more glorious purpose.
