Tom Hardy Joining Leonardo DiCaprio's The Revenant Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.05.2014
Inception stars are reuniting...
Tom Hardy is set to join his Inception co-star Leonardo DiCaprio in the western The Revenant. Vulture reports that Hardy is in talks for an unnamed supporting role in the film. DiCaprio recently made the long-gestating project his next film, with Alejandro González Iñárritu directing. A September production start is eyed.
The film is based on the tale of frontiersman Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) who was a 36-year-old member of a fur-trapping expedition to the Rocky Mountains in 1823 when he was mauled by a grizzly. The group's captain left behind two men -- John Fitzgerald and the legendary Jim Bridger -- to stay with Glass until he died from his injuries... but they didn't. Fearful that Indians weren't going to get them, Fitzgerald and Bridger stripped Glass of his weapons and equipment and fled. Glass didn't die. Instead, the mutilated trapper crawled over 200 miles through the wilderness to find Fitzgerald and Bridger and exact his revenge.
