When he's not starring in movies or stopping crime in real life, endlessly interesting performer Tom Hardy moonlights as a rapper. His long-lost 1999 mixtape resurfaced earlier this year, and now Hardy is reportedly working on some new grime chunes.

According to The Sun, Hardy has been working on new material with Sam Williams — a producer that has previously worked David Bowie. Unlike Bowie, however, Hardy's new material will be strictly rap.

"Tom has always had a huge passion for rapping ever since he was a young boy," a source told The Sun. "In the past he's put song-writing on the backburner but just recently decided to pick things up again after building a friendship with producer Sam Williams. They've been busy working on a selection of songs together for an album and it's really starting to get some steam."

The source adds that Hardy has a stack of music ready to go if and when he decides to release it. "Tom's a bit tentative about releasing it for the world but big labels including Warner have already shown an interest in picking it up, so there is real potential for it to hit the charts," they said.

Until we get new music from the future Venom star we'll just have to stick with the old stuff. Revisit Hardy's Falling on Your Arse in 1999 mixtape below.
