Tom Hardy will star as a decorated Navy SEAL in “War Party,” with Ridley Scott attached to produce.

“Killing Me Softly” and “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” director Andrew Dominik is helming with Scott producing, along with Jules Daly for Scott Free. According to insiders, Netflix is in talks to acquire the project in a seven-figure deal.

If the deal closes, this would mark the second large-scale project the streamer has acquired since tapping Scott Stuber to run their film initiative. The other property is a film about the Black Panther Party, with Justin Lin on board to direct.
