The latest project on Tom Hiddleston's slate? A new sports drama by the name of Kyriakides

Tom Hiddleston may not have a major Marvel commitment right now - unless they're sneaking Loki into Avengers: Age Of Ultron - but he's no shortage of other projects he's working on. Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak is currently in post-production, whilst he's soon to shoot Ben Wheatley's next, High Rise, an adaptation of J G Ballard's book.

After that? He might just be committing to a new sports drama for Disney by the name of Kyriakides. This is the story of Greek marathon runner Stelios Kyriakides, who lived through and survived the Nazi occupation of Greece, and went on to win the Boston Marathon, raising lots of money as he did so.

Bill Wheeler is working on the screenplay for this one, and Disney is reportedly "actively meeting with directors to helm the project".
