Tom Hardy is working on a new TV project for FX that will see him play a 19th Century 'Batman' who divides his time between his shipping empire and avenging his fathers death.  Also involved in the show is the director of the original, and best, version of The Killing, Kristoffer Nyholm and the writer of the tense car-based thriller Locke, Stephen Knight, which starred Mr Hardy and an impressive welsh accent.
