Leonardo DiCaprio and Sean Penn are being eyed for The Revenant

11.04.2011

If I were making a film and had a couple of decent male roles to cast, I'd certainly consider offering parts to Leonardo DiCaprio and Sean Penn.

It looks like director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (BIUTIFUL) would also love to cast DiCaprio and Penn in his next film, an adaptation of Michael Punke's novel, THE REVENANT. Apparently both actors have already met with Inarritu to discuss the film.

Here's some info on the roles: "DiCaprio is being courted to play 1820s frontiersman Hugh Glass, who hires on to a fur trapping expedition and is so badly mauled by a bear that hes unable to be transported back from the wilderness. He hires two men to stay behind. Expecting him to die, they rob and abandon him instead, leaving him helpless. When he recovers, he is hellbent on revenge. Inarritu wants Penn to play one of the men who left him for dead."

If all goes well, the project will start filming next fall.

I just read about this guy a week ago. Absolutely unreal survival story. He crawled for 6 weeks just to reach a river, made a raft and then reached the fort he was traveling to.

This movie was already made back in 1971 with Richard Harris and John Huston under the title "Man in the Wilderness." It's a really good flick, in my opinion. Don't know if they need to do a remake.

This plot synopsis is fucking amazing! Would love to see these two do this and go against each other. If this gets the go ahead I think it'll be my most anticipated film of next year.
