More info on Tom & Chips tv series Bluebell. Coming in 2015! I love it. :D
Tom Hardy has teamed up with his father to write and star in new series ‘Bluebell’. The 36-year-old actor and his writer father Edward - who is known as Chips - have been working together on a new detective series in which he will take on the lead role of Detective Bluebell.
A source said: ”It’s a lovely project for the pair of them.Tom has been wanting to do more writing and directing with his dad being a novelist, it means they can tap into each other’s expertise. They have been working on it for a while as they initially submitted the pilot over a year ago.”
‘The Dark Knight Rises’ star - who is also set to appear on the small screen in the second series of BBC Two gangster drama ‘Peaky Blinders’ - is expected to see his first writing project come to life as early as next year, as ‘Bluebell’ has now been commissioned by Sky Atlantic.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: ”But now the contract has been signed and it’s full steam ahead for the series. It is early days but it is being planned to be aired in 2015.”
Chips’ previous writing credits include the Channel 4 children’s series ‘Helping Harry’ and ‘The Dave Allen Show’.
I was gonna direct the movie Bronson. The casting director suggested Tom Hardy and I said I liked him. Apparently he didn’t think I would [like him] because of something I said when he was a model and came to a casting with me. I got sacked from the movie but I cast him, and a lot of ideas of mine are in that movie, although that won’t go down with the director.

It’s the story of a man who lives morally and mentally isolated from the world. One day he finds an abused pitbull puppy, and this event changes his life. Life around him start to change and affect him, and it forces him to react. He’s forced to fight his demons.
The main characters exist on the edge of the law and what we think of as just. But because we get to know them, we learn to love them.
