Fonzo: Mason Guccione (“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”) Joins Capone Biopic

Actor Mason Guccione (“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”) has been cast opposite Tom Hardy in the Al Capone feature biopic, Fonzo.

Josh Trank is directing from his own script about the ruthless businessman and bootlegger who ruled Chicago with an iron fist, was jailed for tax evasion and died at the age of 47, following nearly a decade of imprisonment as dementia rotted his mind.

Producers are keeping the details of Guccione’s character under wraps.

Bron Studios, in association with Creative Wealth Media, is backing the film, which recently began principal photography in New Orleans.

The producers are Aaron L. Gilbert for BRON, Russell Ackerman and John Schoenfelder for Addictive Pictures, and Lawrence Bender for A Band Apart, alongside executive producer Jason Cloth of Creative Wealth Media.
