Here’s our first look at Tom and co-star Tilda Swinton in their upcoming vampire film ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ courtesy of Indiewire. In the film, Tom plays Adam, an underground musician who reunites with his centuries long lover Eve (Swinton), but finds their relationship interrupted by her wild sister, Ava (Wasikowska).
Out of Darkness, a short film by Manjinder Virk recently released a poster featuring Tom. Little is known about the short film but may be followed on twitter via @HundresofSouls. Check out the Poster below.
The Thor star has stepped into his role for the 2013 Jameson Empire Done In 60 Seconds short film competition, in which would-be producers are challenged to condense their favourite movie into a simple 60-second clip.
Hiddleston is adamant Hollywood needs a regular induction of fresh talent and he is hoping the unique contest will unearth the stars of the future.
He tells WENN, “I think what I’ve seen is that it’s really important in our industry to keep the doors open for new aspiring young talent to join the ranks of the established. It’s very important for everyone to have a voice and film is like every art form, it’s about the authenticity of individual voices…
“It’s quite thrilling when you see first time work, whether its a 60-second type film that’s an homage or a pastiche or something more. It could be hilarious and funny and stupid or it could be weighty and deep or somehow ethereal. I just think there’s room for everybody and I’m excited by seeing it… if you’ve literally got one minute to put your stamp on something, in a way, the constraint of it sharpens your instinct.”
Article courtesy IndieWire: Before he was Loki, Tom Hiddleston was just another Brit actor trying to make it and early on he formed a bond with filmmaker Joanna Hogg. He appeared in her 2007 indie Unrelated and three years later starred in her sophomore feature Archipelago. And while the world is now an oyster for the actor, and he likely has many more offers on his desk than ever before, he’s reuniting with Hogg for her next film.
Hiddleston will feature alongside Viv Albertine — former guitarist for punk legends The Slits — and conceptual artist Liam Gillick in the currently untitled movie. And if you’re wondering what on Earth is bringing together a superhero villain, punk rocker and a Turner Prize nominee, your guess is as good as ours, as plot details are being kept on the down low. “I continue to be fascinated by the blurred line between the comic and the horrendous – but depicting this in an ordinary, everyday context which is closer to home, and therefore more terrifying,” is all Hogg would venture in a press release.
The plan is for the movie to shoot in London for six weeks this fall, after which we presume Hiddleston will put on the horns again for Thor: The Dark World.
