Tom Hardy will lead the upcoming Bosnian war film, MY WAR GONE BY, I MISS IT SO, based on the 1999 book of the same name by English journalist and war correspondent Anthony Lloyd, and tells of his experiences while documenting the war.

My War Gone By will be directed and produced by Gavin O’Connor, with Scott LaStaiti producing.

Hardy previously said:

“MY WAR GONE BY is a brutal yet sensitive story which addresses both the nature of addiction and the experience of war. I was struck by Anthony’s work and words, experiences, and for me his is an important voice and an important book.”

My War Gone By, I Miss It So is described as the following:

Born to a distinguished family steeped in military tradition, raised on stories of wartime and ancestral heroes, Anthony Lloyd longed to experience war from the front lines– so he left England at the age of twenty-six to document the conflict in Bosnia. For the following three years he witnessed the killings of one of the most callous and chaotic clashes on European soil, in the midst of a lethal struggle among the Serbs, Croatians, and Bosnian Muslims. Addicted to the adrenaline of armed combat, he returned home to wage a longstanding personal battle against substance abuse.

Hardy currently can be see in the big screen in Dunkirk, written and directed by Christopher Nolan.
