Tom Hardy becomes James Delaney, heir to a fortune, and plunged into a conspiratorial mire as shipping magnates grapple for control of lucrative colonial trade routes for FX Networks’ Taboo.
It’s 1814 and to all intents and purposes, James Keziah Delaney is back from the dead.
Back to claim his father’s legacy and, it would seem, back to wreak vengeance on those that crossed him and stand in his way.
The upcoming show gives Tom Hardy an opportunity to indulge the villainous in a way that recalls his intimidating performances in Bronson, Peakey Blinders, The Take, The Revenant and The Dark Knight Rises.
Co-created by the BAFTA award-winning actor, Taboo is being prepared for release early on in 2017. Oona Chaplin, David Hayman, Michael Kelly and Jonathan Price co-star.
