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.
