Tom Hiddleston joins Gemma Arterton in Robert Capa biopic 'Capa' Published Wednesday, Apr 17 2013, 2:44pm EDT | By Hugh Armitage (DIGITAL SPY)

Tom Hiddleston has been cast in Capa.

He will play photographer Robert Capa in Paul Andrew Williams's biopic alongside Gemma Arterton as Gerda Taro

The Jewish communist couple were formerly Endre Friedmann and Gerta Pohorylle before they changed their names when they went to cover the Spanish Civil War.

"I look at [Capa's] life and see it in heroic terms," Hiddleston told Shortlist.

"A Hungarian kicked out of Hungary for writing against fascism, he moved to Germany where he was kicked out for being Jewish, then he moved to France and from there began a life-long commitment to make a stand against forces of fascism."
