Tom Hardy will be filming in Cincinnati this fall.
Movie stars are once again flocking to the Queen City.
Tom Hardy (Venom
), Austin Butler (Elvis
) and Jodie Comer (Killing Eve
) will be in town this fall to start production on director Jeff Nichols' new film, The Bikeriders
, according to Film Cincinnati, the local nonprofit dedicated to cultivating Cincinnati's status as a moviemaking hub.
Nichols — behind such films as Loving
and Take Shelter
— is taking inspiration from photographer Danny Lyon's 1967 book of the same name. The movie will tell "an original story about a ’60s Midwestern motorcycle club as it evolves over the course of a decade from a community for outsiders into a far more sinister gang," reads an article about the film from Variety magazine
“We are thrilled to host this incredibly talented team and provide tremendous opportunities for locals,” Film Cincinnati Executive Director Kristen Schlotman says in the release. “It’s a very exciting time for Cincinnati's own role in the film industry.”
Production is slated to begin in October.
