Inception reunion alert! Tom Hardy has officially joined the cast of Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Western revenge thriller The Revenant, which has Leonardo Dicaprio in the lead role.
Based on Michael Punke’s novel The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge, Dicaprio plays a fur trapper who is robbed and left for dead by his companions after a grisly grizzly bear attack. Of course, he survives, and begins to seek revenge from those who wronged him. It’s unclear who Hardy will play, but likely one of the aforementioned traitors. We’re the Millers star Will Poulter is also on board, and perhaps more importantly, so is cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, just coming off his Oscar win for Gravity.
Filming begins on September 22, with a Fall 2015 release planned.
