Domhnall Gleeson has certainly been building up a great film career with roles in the likes of Dredd, Harry Potter, True Grit and About Time, and he’s also got a major part in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. Now he’s signed on to star in The Revenant according to Variety.
Leonardo DiCaprio is set to take the lead role as 1820s fur trader Hugh Glass. He gets mauled by a grizzly bear and then to make matters worse he is robbed and left for dead. Glass manages to survive and sets off on a quest for vengeance against those who robbed him.
It’s not clear who Gleeson, but he joins a cast that also includes Tom Hardy (who is believed to be the main bad guy) and Will Poulter.
Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu is set to direct, with filming kicking off later this year.
