Tom Hardy Reteams with Leonardo DiCaprio For THE REVENANT

Tom Hardy Reteams with Leonardo DiCaprio For THE REVENANT

We may never know what happened to Tom Hardy and Leonardo DiCaprio at the end of Christopher Nolan’s Inception, but the two will be reteaming for Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s upcoming film The Revenant

Hardy had been attached to the project for weeks, but it hadn’t been made official as he has been quite the busy man lately. He’s now untangled himself to co-star in the movie based on Michael Punke same named book. The story revolves around Hugh Glass, a late 1800’s fur trapper who is terribly mauled by a grizzly bear and then left for dead and robbed. After surviving against these unbelievable odds, he does what any frontiersman would do: he seeks vengeance on those who did him wrong. Sean Penn was originally onboard for this film, and it’s assumed Hardy will take over that role.

Will Poulter (We’re the Millers) is negotiating to co-star in the film. Hardy may seem to have been MIA from the big screen lately, but he’s got a slew of films about to hit including Locke which has seen him receiving stellar reviews. He’s also pulling double duty playing gangster twins Ronald and Reggis Kray in Legend which is directed by Brian Helgeland. Other upcoming films will include The Drop with James Gandolfini and Child 44 which has Hardy playing alongside Gary Oldman and Noomi Rapace. One that I’m looking forward to seeing him in is Mad Max: Fury Road with Charlize Theron next May. Hopefully that will set off the Summer 2015 box office with a great big bang.

The Revenant‘ is written by Mark L. Smith and director Alejandro González Iñárritu. Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Keith Redmon and David Kanter will produce the film along with Iñárritu, Arnon Milchan and James Skotchdopole, while Paul Green, Brett Ratner and James Packer will executive produce.

The Revenant will begin shooting on September 22, 2014 for a fall 2015 release date.
