Tom Hardy in Talks to Join Leonardo DiCaprio in THE REVENANT
Tom Hardy is currently in talks to Leonardo DiCaprio in the Alejandro González Iñárritu-directed film The Revenant.
This is a period revenge thriller that tells the story of “a gold-seeking fur trapper who is mauled by a bear. When the two men who are were supposed to take care of him rob him and leave him to die alone, the man wills himself to survive and goes on a 350 mile journey though the wilderness to survive.”
That story sounds amazing, and there's no doubt in my mind that it's going to make an incredible film. The movie has been in development since 2011, and different talent has passed through project over the years. The latest version of the script was written by Mark L. Smith.
If Hardy ends up being cast in the movie, it will be the second time he has worked with DiCaprio. They both were in the Christopher Nolan film Inception. They were great together in that movie, so it would be fantastic if they got to work together again in this one.
