While not much is known about the new movie, last year Tom teased that he's hoping to work on something "completely different" after portraying Lucifer for so many years. He told Square Mile: "I am going to find myself in that similar territory in that people are going to expect one thing from me now.

"And I would like to surprise them and do something completely different. That's always been my thought process."
