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

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.

    @also…: I’d rather stay here as well :)

  • also…

    @Newcomer: I mean we already talked about the pictures and I don’t wanna keep looking at them and see what’s going on there with the comments. I hope others will stick to this thread as well. :)

  • Newcomer

    @also…: Yes, we have already talked about it and from I have just seen on the other thread, it is mostly negative and how he is a creep… There was good news with this Iñárritu project, we all seemed happy that he was back to work, and now, it’s back to Toni again and it’s not even something new about them. If everybody goes on the other thread, I think I will only comment after the “storm”, when we go back to talking about this project or new pics/sightings of him.

  • lol

    If I’m honest I was hoping Leo was going to work with Wes Anderson type next or even Spike Jonez and I was hoping for something light

  • also…

    @Newcomer: Right. If it was new I wouldn’t wanna stick here. It’s all bashing there and I bet some people are also there to annoy and provoke people. And I’m happy because I feel like I’m making progress y doing this. Instead of ‘fighting’ over there I would just rather stay quiet and calm here.
    Back to the movie… Has anyone read the book or heard about it? I admit I’m not familiar with the story at all.

  • lol

    @Newcomer: I see it less as promo and more as sucking up. Meyer already has famous female American client and pals like Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Drew Barrymore, Jessica Alba e.t.c Unless its a Gisele or Kate Moss very few of these models can give her jewellry much exposure

  • also…

    @lol: Maybe WOWS was all the light we got for a while and now he is back to serious roles?

  • lol

    @also…: I guess WOWS can be considered light but along with Django I thought Leo was on a new direction

  • ####

    @also…:

    Yes let’s definitely stay on this thread. :-)

    I’m sorry but the pics that are on JJ”s thread just don’t look right. IMO it looks like Toni does all the work and Leo just kind of goes along with it. Once again not saying he doesn’t like her but it is obvious she is way more in to him than he is in to her.

    Thank GOD for this thread and I won’t be bringing up the pics again! LOL

  • also…

    Re Jen Meyer: I also think it might be sucking up and name dropping. I mean the way she clarified who Jen Meyer is and had to say she is Tobey’s wife. lol

  • Really?

    @also…:
    Calvin Candie and Jordan Belfort were two comedic roles for him and even Gatsby contained some humor too(the clock scene) I’m not sure what people mean by wanting him to do a lighter movie, you mean one like Catch Me If You Can?

  • ####

    @also…:

    Yeah and the fact that she didn’t bring up any other jewelry designer??? LOL

  • Really?

    Excuse my username btw I used it on the previous thread in response to trolls

  • lol

    @Really?: Nt necessarily that but after so many intense Leo projects (and all the memes it inspired) he seemed to be going on a different vein and showing another facet to his performance abilities

  • Really?

    My suspicion is he doesn’t get offered many light roles and is not considered for many supporting roles either Django Unchained aside. Most directors see him as a leading man.

  • Newcomer

    @also…: Yes, it’s better to stay here :) Like I said, I am sticking here, at least until the “storm” ends. If I find something new about him (related to this new movie or a sighting…), I will post it here as well.
    Re movie: I had not heard about this project before today and this Deadline article, and not even about the book or if I heard about it, then I don’t remember. It seems interesting but yes, he is back to a “darker” role I guess.

    @lol: I like Spike Jonze and Wes Anderson a lot so it would have been great if he had worked with them. Maybe later! And yes, you are right, Jen posts more about people who are way more famous than Toni, so she probably won’t do it.

  • Don’t get it

    Hi girls! I’m definetly staying in this thread as well. Good to see that Leo will be working soon. Not to sure about the plot of this movie but i’ll have to wait and see.
    I was hoping for The Devil in the White City too!! I haven’t finish reading the book yet but it’s amazing.
    Hope all of you are ok.
    Am i the only one who thinks all this sequal of stories and photos are a little weird?
    I mean… we are talking about the guy who never gets papped. Just saying….

  • Really?

    @lol:
    Oh I see. Black comedy seems to be what he is good at so I too would like to see him do more work in that genre, someone like the Coens would be a good pairing with DiCaprio. From how this project is described it seems Leo is going to need to get in shape and lose that beer belly. This project is described as a thriller not a drama so I think it will be interesting to see.

  • Don’t get it

    Oh forgot to say, i’m glad he is working with this director, i’ve read he was looking forward to work with him someday…. Plus i loved Amores Perros & Babel, they are very well directed. Looking forward to this new project though it’s not my favorite.

    To whoever said Leo wouldn’t like to see papz takin topless pics of his girl is right. I worked in a Bar in NYC a couple of years back and Leo and don’t know if it was his girlfriend or not were hanging out with a group of their friends. It got pretty late and some drunk guy approached the girl (girlfriend?) and starting hassling/chatting her up being sloppy and all over her. When Leo saw he came straight over and did the whole “big man” routine getting him away from her, think he may have pushed the guy after some words. Anyway after that his bodygaurd/our body gaurds got the guy thrown out and Leo and his party went back to their seats. So yeah just thought I’d share.

  • lol

    @Newcomer: I did not mean Maguire would not post about Toni referencing her jewelry she very well could esp if she likes Toni.
    I just don’t believe she uses Leo’s model girlfriends for promo as she has clients/friends who are far far bigger names to the average consumer than them.
    More likely Leo gifts them the jewelry as Maguires are longtime close friends of his and the girlfriends to stay close to ‘the group’ wear it often and lavish praise on Jennifer

  • Don’t get it

    @Newcomer:
    I agree on Spike Jonze and Wes Anderson, i would love to see them working with Leo. We will have to wait.
    @also…:
    Hi! No i haven’t read to book. I will try to find it but i thinks it’s not going to be easy to find it here in south america.

  • Partygirl

    I’m happy that Leo has chosen his next project.

    Eclipse = gamechanger

  • also…

    @####: I agree. I get the same Toni is into him but not the other way around vibe from the photos. Touching, kissing but still those photos are off and not flattering ( not just because of his belly ). And that`s all I`m gonna say about it. We have talked about it already and it`s not worth going through that sh^t storm on the other thread all over again.
    Right, no other designer mentioned only her?
    @Don`t get it: Hi there! Good to see you here. It is great news that he is going to work again and actually quite soon. Even though I`m not too interested in the story but I am really happy he has a new project. That`s what matters.
    @Really?: Yeah, Django and Gatsby were lighter ones as well. I just mentioned his role is WOWS because it was a whole movie with a lighter character not just a supporting role or some scenes. But you are right. I like him in lighter roles and I hoped he will continue that streak even though Devil in the White City might not be too light either.

  • Newcomer

    @lol: I didn’t write my previous comment very well. I meant that you were right about the fact she has bigger names promoting her jewelry. And then, I wanted to add that it was one of the reasons why I thought that she probably wouldn’t post this Toni itw. In my opinion of course. She could also do it.

    @Don’t get it: No, you are not the only one lol. I also said yesterday on the other thread that I thought it was strange due to French laws, police protecting him and the fact that he is very private. And she posted a pic on IG giving the exact location. But I also agreed with the arguments coming from other posters that these pics were not flattering to him at all so I don’t know. I am on the fence but I find this a bit suspicious.

    And I don’t know a lot about this novel Iñárritu is adapting but hopefully we will know more details about it soon. I like the fact that he is working with a new director, and I really like Iñárritu, and the story seems interesting even if like I said before, I also wanted the Devil in the White City. Maybe after nearly 2 years without shooting, he will film several movies “in a row”.

    Wow! This is harsh (but kind of funny!). I guess TMZ doesn’t like Leo?!

  • Blacksharpie

    It also could be that it gives her some promotion. People who read JJ might also check out her thread and start following her. One hand feeds the other?!

    @Blacksharpie:
    They like Leo a lot, they just like making fun of him.

    @Blacksharpie: Huh? TMZ LOVES Leo. In fact they usually kiss his a*s 24/7

    @lol:
    Lol right, they have a total man crush on him. But they take digs at him for things most peeps make fun of Leo for aka only just the Oscar and his modelizing.

  • Newcomer

    These two girls are together in Beverly Hills, so I guess he left Palm Springs too. It was pretty early but Gabriela posted one last pic from his PS house even earlier this morning.

    Wow! The TMZ team ripped him apart on their evening show. The female team members said he hasn’t looked good for a long time and they said he looked old and bloated in Gatsby. They said he might be a Brando type and they showed overweight Brando photos. It’s harsh and not a word about Toni.

  • Newcomer

    An interesting article from February but I hadn’t seen it before:

    http://www.thewrap.com/leo-dicaprio-will-make-8-movies-next-year-according-biographer/

    “Fact: Warner Bros. is eager to find a new movie for DiCaprio because the studio, home to DiCaprio’s Appian Way production company, wants to win the actor his first Oscar. DiCaprio has been nominated for an Oscar four times, and has yet to win. He could break that streak this year, but it would be for a Paramount movie.

    Fact: According to those with knowledge of the studio’s thinking, Warner Bros. is most optimistic about two of the aforementioned projects — the Wilson biopic and the ‘King Harald’ movie. But, keep in mind, DiCaprio was either going to star in or contemplated starring in all eight of those movies. At least according to the sources of a particular reporter.”

    Well, we know now that he will make the Iñárritu movie first and that he didn’t win an Oscar for the Paramount movie (WOWS) but it is still an interesting recap of all the projects he has been linked to.

  • also…

    There are lots of orojects he has been linked to recently. I haven’t heard about this one so it was a surprise. I wonder what comes after this one.

  • Yikes

    @also…:
    That is really harsh. Personally I thought he looked good in Gatsby and WOWS and so did all my friends, they agreed it’s the most they were attracted to since Departed era. I don’t get what’s people’s issue with him looking older, he is turning 40 this year and he couldn’t look like Jack Dawson forever.

  • Yikes

    And FWIW I wasn’t attracted to his looks in Inception or Shutter Island.

  • Newcomer

    The girls (Taryn, Gabriela and Toni) are still together at the BH Hotel:

    I am wondering what Leo will dot for Lukas’ birthday???

    Maybe that movie with Jonah or Devil In White City?

  • Newcomer

    *typoe “will do for”

  • Amy

    @also…:

    I thought he looked fine in Gatsby so I have no idea what they’re talking about.

  • @also

    It seems like these Bora Bora pics have hurt him more than help him..can’t remember the last time he’s gotten this many body shaming comments and flack over a relationship…I don’t really believe those pics were photo ops tbf

  • lol

    @Yikes: Yep he looked better in those movies than his moon-faced days of Inception and Shutter Island
