The film's distributor, Vertical Entertainment, describes the film as follows:

"A ruthless businessman and bootlegger who ruled Chicago with an iron fist, Al "Fonzo" Capone (Tom Hardy) was the most infamous and feared gangster of American lore.

At the age of 47, following nearly a decade of imprisonment, dementia rots Capone's mind and his past becomes present as harrowing memories of his violent and brutal origins melt into his waking life."

The movie was to be released with the title Fonzo, but it instead switched to Capone.

Gangster Al Capone (1899-1947) poses for a portrait, ca. 1920s.

English actor Tom Hardy stars in the new film from director Josh Trank. Hardy has received acclaim for performances in films including Dunkirk, Mad Max: Fury Road, Inception, The Dark Knight Rises (as "Bane"), and Bronson

Capone doesn't look to be a conventional biopic, as it centres on an aging Al Capone who's struggling with dementia and memories of his days as a notoriously violent gangster. Kyle MacLachlan, Linda Cardellini, Jack Lowden, Matt Dillon, and Neal Brennan co-star in the movie.

In the film, Hardy will join the list of actors to portray Capone, which previously featured Robert De Niro (in The Untouchables) and Stephen Graham (on Boardwalk Empire). See it on VOD starting on May 12!
