Leonardo DiCaprio and director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu have both committed to the period revenge thriller “The Revenant” at New Regency, RatPac and Worldview.
Based on the Michael Punke novel, the story follows 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.
Mark L. Smith penned the script and filming is slated to begin in September ahead of a Fall 2015 release. Inarritu, Arnon Milchan, James Skotchdopole, Steve Golin, Keith Redmon and David Kanter will produce.
