Tom began filming Havoc in Wales last month and it will air on Netflix after shooting wraps in October.
The film tells the story of a drug deal gone wrong and a detective who has to battle his way through the criminal underworld to rescue the estranged son of a leading politician.
It is being directed by Welsh filmmaker Gareth Evans who is behind films such as The Raid and Raid 2, the Michael Sheen horror Apostle and Sky Atlantic’s Gangs of London.
It comes after the official trailer for Tom’s upcoming movie Venom: Let There Be Carnage was released.
Sony Pictures Entertainment’s official YouTube account uploaded the trailer, which features Tom Hardy as the main character, last month.
The feature, which stars Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson, centres around the titular character as he comes face to face with a new threat with similar powers.

The Andy Serkis-directed superhero film is intended to be the second entry in the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters, which serves as a counterpart to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is set to make its debut on September 24, after it was pushed back from an original October 2020 release date.
The forthcoming feature will serve as a sequel to the original 2018 film, which also kicked off the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters.
As opposed to producing stories centered around a wide range of superheroes in the vein of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the media franchise will be focused on characters that are associated with Spider-Man.
Although executives from both studios intensely negotiated over the rights to the web-slinger, they eventually came to an agreement that allowed both to use the property.
The next scheduled film from the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters is set to be centered around Morbius the Living Vampire, who will be portrayed by Jared Leto, and will make its debut in 2022.
Other projects that are currently in development include features centered around characters such as Kraven The Hunter and Madame Web.
Hardy has also confirmed that he will be starring in a third Venom film, although the upcoming feature’s release date is currently not known.
