All right, Tom Hardy fans. We know news of an upcoming action drama starring the actor known for his roles in The Dark Knight Rises, Venom, and Peaky Blinders has probably reached your ears by now. The Netflix movie is called Havoc, and it’s promising to be quite a ride.
Directed and written by Gareth Evans, the director of The Raid franchise, Havoc is the first film tied to the exclusive deal Evans signed with Netflix to produce and direct films for the platform.No stranger to crime dramas, Hardy will be mixing it up with criminals while dealing with heavy corruption in the political world.
Information is still on the light side about Havoc, but here’s what we know about the film and when you can expect to add it to your Netflix watch list.

Considering we just learned about this film existing in February 2021, we're not optimistic about it arriving this year. An early 2022, or even summer 2022, window, seems more reasonable.

We’re still in the early stages of the film’s development which means we’re only looking at a cast of two in the movie thus far.
As a Hardy-led piece, we expect for the leading man to be playing the detective Havoc centers on. However, his character is currently nameless, so in our minds he’s simply the detective for now.
As for Forest Whitaker, he recently signed onto the film as a co-star, but nothing has been released about his character. We could speculate that he’ll be playing the politician to Hardy’s investigator but, at this point, there’s not much else to guess on.
What we do know is that these powerhouse actors will certainly play well off of each other. Now whether that’s as allies or two men on opposite sides, we’ll have to wait and see.
How to watch Havoc
Netflix’s Havoc is currently scheduled to enter production in late-June 2021, according to issue 1235 of Production Weekly. Filming is to take place primarily in Wales, UK.
Considering a June 2021 production start, we can rule out the possibility of Netflix’s Havoc being released in 2021, but rather sometime in 2022.

Forest Whitaker has joined Tom Hardy in the upcoming Netflix crime drama film “Havoc,” Variety has learned.
The film hails from writer, director, and producer Gareth Evans, the first under a new exclusive multi-year deal to produce and direct films for the streamer.
In “Havoc,” after a drug deal gone wrong, a bruised detective must fight his way through a criminal underworld to rescue a politician’s estranged son, while unraveling a deep web of corruption and conspiracy that ensnares his entire city. Hardy’s casting was reported in February.
Whitaker won the Academy Award and Golden Globe for best actor for his portrayal of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in “The Last King of Scotland.” He has turned in tour de force performances in a number of other films, including but not limited to “Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai,” “The Butler,” “Black Panther,” “Platoon,” “Bird,” and “The Great Debaters.” He currently stars in the Epix series “Godfather of Harlem” as legendary gangster Ellsworth “Bumpy” Johnson. The second season of the show will debut in April.
Whitaker is repped by WME and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
Evans is producing “Havoc” under his One More One Productions banner. Ed Talfan of Severn Screen will also produce, as will Aram Tertzakian for XYZ Films. Hardy will produce in addition to starring.
Evans is best known for writing and directing the action spectaculars “The Raid: Redemption” and its sequel. He most recently co-created the Sky-AMC series “Gangs of London,” which was renewed for a second season last year.
