Leonardo DiCaprio Lines Up 'The Revenant' as His Next Big Film!

Leonardo DiCaprio has just landed his next new role in the highly anticipated film The Revenant, Deadline reports.

The 39-year-old actor will star in the Alejandro Gonzalez-directed gritty thriller based on the Michael Punke novel The Revenant: A Novel Of Revenge.

Leonardo will portray Hugh Glass, “a 19th century fur trapper who gets mauled by a grizzly bear, and then is left for dead by cohorts who rob him. When he survives, he is as pissed as a bee-stung bear and sets out on a treacherous journey to exact revenge on those who betrayed him.”

Leo has been circling the role since 2011! Sean Penn has also been rumored for many years, but is reportedly no longer attached.

The film will begin shooting in September for a 2015 release.

Bad press—-> movie announcement?

GOD IS GOOD. I’ll just repeat this from the last thread: Btw I read there were talks that with Bale, DDL, Joaquin, and Fassy for this project in the past so this was definitely a seeked out role. This is definitely a big stretch for Leo and is not another movie star role. Intrigued to see how he pulls this off.

Yeah! Happy fan right here.

That movie plot sounds like Kill Bill meets Django. Will DiCaprio get Jay-Z another producing contract? *shivers*


(Hunnert dolla hunnert dolla bill REAL plays in the background)

DiCaprio wrestles a stuffed bear and loses the fight. He hollers dramatically, this scene will be in all the trailers. He continues to wrestle the teddy bear until all the buttons pop off of his costume. He is so dedicated!!!!!

The Revenant will open with a shot of DiCaprio’s naked body and a cactus up his ass.

Thank God they didn’t make a post about the Bora Bora pics. I can’t look at them.

Sunshine PR! @ 04/15/2014 at 2:16 pm

I’m pree sure Leo’s team just wanted to boot dat Coachella dancing post from it’s top spot in the Leo news LOL watch this project take like..3 years to complete lolol brace yourselves for lots of articles about delays, excuses like “Weather issues” etc.

Well, it doesn’t sound like a very interesting story but I’m SO HAPPY that he is going back to work!!!!!! Finally! I wonder where they are going to shoot the movie.

I posted on the old thread so re-posting it here!
@beth: Hi! Thanks for the link! It will be good to see Leo go back to work.
@HAHA12: Hi! Great news! I wonder where it will be filmed? Not so sure about the plot. Although, I think he could definitely look like a mountain man! I wonder if that means the next few months he’s going to be partying/travelling like crazy because his break is coming to an end. I guess this means he probably won’t be doing any environmental project, again. I should know by now that he often says things that he doesn’t really mean. :(

dicaprio is too lazy @ 04/15/2014 at 2:17 pm

Nothing is gonna happen->>>>>>No next project
He will continue going downhill as usual
He’s too lazy and self assured for a new project

And the haters are coming through as expected. And @also, it states they are shooting this Fall :) Still such a long time for Leo to remain a bum lol

Leaked Script @ 04/15/2014 at 2:18 pm

The film will feature a historical Tacombi stand for prince Leo’s snacking pleasure ah I mean ~~~ method acting

@####: Hi Lady! Did you have your MRI already?

well said @ 04/15/2014 at 2:19 pm

@dicaprio is too lazy:

yeah hes lazy @ 04/15/2014 at 2:19 pm

@dicaprio is too lazy: he chose this famous director because he knows he can ride his coattails

I’m glad he’s getting back to work but yeah it’s kinda unfortunate if he doesn’t do any environmental related work like he said, it’s hard to really ever believe anything he says regarding that subject because he doesn’t seem committed to it anymore :/ But we’ll see, maybe he might have stuff to work on in the Summer? You never know.. these pics are sooo intrusive omg, the poor girl is topless!! papz should be ashamed, but they are very cute! wonder why jared hasnt posted them and posted this instead..


@Zzzzzz: repost:Hey! You’re welcome and lol I was just thinking that. Leo will be partying hard this summer before he heads back to work but at least he will have something to focus on this fall. I guess no broadway this year either, I still hopes he decides to broadway at some point, maybe next year. Yeah it’s a shame he never got involved with any environmental causes this year. I really liked 11th hour I would’ve liked to have seen another documentary from him

NO NO NO NO @ 04/15/2014 at 2:24 pm

BABEL WAS AWFUL!! pretentious as hell!!!
