It appears Tom Hardy may have been missing his old Inception chum Leonardo DiCaprio, as TheWrap reports that he’s in talks to co-star opposite Leo in The Revenant.
DiCaprio has had the film on the backburner for several years but is now hoping to make it his next movie.
The Revenant is based on Michael Punke’s novel, The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge. DiCaprio will play Hugh Glass, a 19th century fur trapper who is mauled by a grizzly bear, left for dead and then robbed. When he survives against all odds, he sets out on a treacherous journey to exact revenge on his betrayers.
It’s not clear who Hardy might be, although it’s speculated he’ll be the main villain, a role Sean Penn was once attached to.
Alejandro González Iñárritu is set to direct the movie from a script he co-wrote with Mark L. Smith,
