Gary Oldman Joins Tom Hardy Movie Child 44

Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy might not have much time together (any time together?) in The Dark Knight Rises, but they were evidently close enough to take this beautiful photo together, so let's call it a reunion anyway. Child 44 will feature Hardy as a fifties Soviet military police agent who comes under government suspicion while investigating some child murders; Oldman will play the head of police, the one keeping tabs on Hardy. Noomi Rapace and Joel Kinnaman are also onboard, with Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) directing.
