The cast of "Fonzo" (aka "Cicero") also includes Matt Dillon, Kyle MacLachlan, Kathrine Narducci and Linda Cardellini.
Hardy said he has been working closely with Warner Bros, "watching their gangster films — the ones with James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and Edward G. Robinson...it’s interesting to get them, and a bit of 'Capone', into the bloodstream…
"The idea isn’t to remake those films but to get a flavor of them as we explore Capone’s career as a racketeer."

The "Cicero" screenplay was originally written by Walon Green, noted for writing director Sam Peckinpah's classic western "The Wild Bunch".
