Legend (2015) is a British crime thriller written and directed by Brian Helgeland. This film marks his return to adapted screenplays in the genre of crime since the conclusion of L.A. Confidential. The film is based on the book The Profession of Violence: The Rise and Fall of the Kray Twins by John Pearson, which deals with the rise and fall of the Kray twins; the relationship that bound them together, and charts their gruesome career to their downfall and imprisonment for life in 1969. Tom Hardy and Emily Browning star with Colin Morgan, David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Chazz Palminteri, Tara Fitzgerald, and Taron Egerton featured in supporting roles.
