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.

    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.

    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!!!!!

    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 Says:

    Nothing is gonna happen->>>>>>No next project

    HAHA12 Says:

    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..

    beth Says:

    @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
