t's Official: Tom Hardy Joins Leonardo DiCaprio in 'The Revenant'


Tom Hardy officially is joining Leonardo DiCaprio in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's next film The Revenant.

The New Regency film, with a script by Inarritu and Mark L. Smith, is based on Michael Punke's novel, The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge. It centers on a 19th century fur trapped who is mauled by a grizzly bear and left for dead. But he survives and embarks on a revenge mission against the people who robbed and betrayed him

Hardy's name has been linked to the role of several weeks, but his busy schedule had to be ironed out to make the date work. The film will start production on Sept. 22, 2014, and is eyeing a fall 2015 release.

Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Keith Redmon and David Kanter will produce the film along with Inarritu, Arnon Milchan and James Skotchdopole. Paul Green, Brett Ratner and James Packer are executive producing. RatPac is co-financing with New Regency.

Hardy was most recently seen in Locke, and his upcoming films include Mad Max: Fury Road, Legend and The Drop.
