Rapper El-P Set to Score Al Capone Biopic 'Fonzo'

Rapper and producer El-P has announced that he will be scoring the upcoming Al Capone biopic Fonzo. Written and directed by Josh Trank, the film will star Tom Hardy as a 47-year-old Capone struggling with dementia. The biopic also stars Kyle MacLachlan, Matt Dillon, and Linda Cardellini. El-P shared his excitement in a press release, stating ”I’m thrilled to be a part of this movie. I’m a huge fan of everyone involved.”

Director Josh Trank, a longtime fan of Run The Jewels, added “Since I was 14 years old, El-P’s music has been one of the most important creative influences in my life. There’s literally no greater honor for me than to collaborate with him today and bear witness to this next stage of his artistic journey.” The film does not currently have a release date.

Last month, El-P publically shared his rejected Blade Runner 2049 score.
