He has been exaggerating his star as Al Capone with scenes from behind the scenes.
And the first official image of Tom Hardy as the famous gangster was released on Thursday by the director of the film, Josh Trank, on Twitter.
At the first glance, the 40-year-old star Inception seemed barely recognizable when he transformed himself into Al Capone with his wrinkled hair and his signature cigar hanging from his mouth.
Anticipated: Tom Hardy, 40, looked totally unrecognizable as Al Capone in the FIRST official image that the notorious gangster in Fonzo shared via Twitter on Thursday
Tom looked completely different from his usual horny exterior with prosthetics aging his skin with wrinkles.
The actor from Wuthering Heights captured the essence of the mobster boss in a silk robe and a shirt stripped of his character appearance.
According to the production notes of the film, entitled Fonzo, the story will show how "his past becomes present as the horrendous memories of his violent and brutal origins merge in his waking life".

It is said that the expected gangster film details the last years of Capone's life and his fight against dementia.
Tom will share the screen with Matt Dillion, Noel Fisher and Linda Cardellini, who will play his wife Mae.
The famous star shaved all his hair for the dramatic role and was seen wearing his new "do and shock" fans when he appeared at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle in May.

The star of Dark Knight Rises, who strengthened considerably to play with the outspoken antagonist Bane in the Batman movie and MMA wrestler Tommy Conlon in Warrior, previously spoke about his fears for his health now that he is 40.
For the project, Tom once again altered his appearance, though he claimed that it would not be as drastic as his previous roles.
He told Daily Beast: "It's not the classic Al Capone that you imagine with the silhouette, I do not want to give too much importance to that, but there's definitely a transformation with that role.

& # 39; I do not know if it's as drastic as Bane. I have probably damaged my body too much. I'm just small!
"If I continue to gain weight, I will collapse like a house of cards under too much pressure."
The star added that he has pains and pains in places he should not and now he is struggling to raise his children Louis, aged nine, and the two-year-old boy he shares with his wife Charlotte Riley.
