Tom Hardy is set to star in 'Samarkand'.

The 'Lawless' actor has turned his attention to a new role as a British SAS soldier with post-traumatic stress disorder dealing with the challenges back home after returning from operations in the Middle East, TheWrap reports.

Brothers Greg and Olly Williams penned the script with the help of Solar Pictures' Bobby Paunescu and Jared Underwood's Solar Entertainment Group.

Greg - who will be directing the project - and Tom previously worked together when the 35-year-old heartthrob starred in his short film 'Sergeant Slaughter, My Big Brother', which earned Greg the Best Director awards at the New York, San Francisco and Chicago short film festivals.

Tom is already attached to numerous projects in addition to this one, having been linked to Steve Knight's 'Locke', Doug Liman's 'Everest', Daniel Epinosa's Russian thriller 'Child 44' as well as shortly beginning work on 'Animal Rescue' with Noomi Rapace.

His next role on the big screen will be Max Rockatansky in George Miller's 'Mad Max: Fury Road', scheduled for release in 2014.
