Hollywood actor Tom Hardy, fresh from his raw turn in Mad Max: Fury Road is on board to produce the feature film adaptation of Brian Azzarello's 100 Bullets comic series.

The Mad Max: Fury Road actor is producing with an eye to star in the adaptation of the acclaimed comic by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Hardy, 37, will produce with Dean Baker under their Hardy Son & Baker production banner.

The project is already under progress, having a script written by The Vatican Tapes writer Chris Borrelli.

The popular comic revolved around an mysterious man named Agent Graves who presents various people with a gun for an unknown reason with the identity of the person who ruined their lives... And a hundred rounds of untraceable ammunition.

100 Bullets is the first Vertigo feature project to actively move forward in any way since New Line took over the imprint.

The comic series was previously considered to be adapted as a television series with David Goyer involved and was also being developed as a movie by Akiva Goldsman's production company Weed Road.
