Tom Hardy is keen to play real-life chef Marco Pierre White in the Hollywood film based on his best-selling book 'The Devil in the Kitchen: Sex, Pain, Madness and the Making of a Great Chef.'
The 36-year-old actor is keen to star as the bad boy chef in the upcoming biopic, which is being directed by Ridley Scott, after bonding with White, 52, over the role.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Tom and Marco have had a long dialogue about the movie.
''Marco's given his blessing and thinks Tom is the only actor who can do him justice.''
The movie is based on White's memoir 'The Devil in the Kitchen: Sex, Pain, Madness and the Making of a Great Chef' and will depict his wild antics during the 1980s and growing up in a working-class British family.
The source added: ''A lot of people thought Russell Crowe was the obvious pick but the movie will primarily be about Marco in his twenties and thirties.
''But Tom and Marco both have similar character traits, including coming from working-class backgrounds and can both be very intense about their work. It will be perfect casting.''
The movie is also expected to star a character based on potty-mouthed celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, 47, who Marco famously trained and fell out with in 2000.
