Tom Hardy in talks to join Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant

Schmoes Knows is reporting Tom Hardy is in serious talks to join his INCEPTION co-star Leonardo DiCaprio in Alejandro Iñárritu's THE REVENANT, an adaptation of the Michael Punke novel. Iñárritu has been attached to direct the film since 2011, and although DiCaprio has been linked to the project since then as well, he only just recently officially joined the project. It's not clear what Tom Hardy's role will be in THE REVENANT, but it will more than likely be as the villain, the same part Sean Penn was being eyed for a few years ago.

Here's the book description from Amazon:

The Revenant tells a story of nearly unimaginable human endurance over 3,000 miles of uncharted American wilderness, spanning what is today the Dakotas, Montana, Wyoming, and Nebraska. Based on the real life of fur trapper Hugh Glass, The Revenant recounts the toll of envy and betrayal, and the power of obsession and vengeance. Punke's novel opens in 1823, when thirty-six-year-old Hugh Glass joins the Rocky Mountain Fur Co. on a venture into perilous, unexplored territory. After being savagely mauled by a grizzly bear, his nearly lifeless body is left in the care of two volunteers from the company—John Fitzgerald, a ruthless mercenary, and young Jim Bridger, the future "King of the Mountain Men." When Indians approach their camp, Fitzgerald and Bridger abandon Glass. Worse yet, they rob the wounded man of his weapons and tools—the very things that might have given him a chance on his own. Deserted, defenseless, and furious, Glass vows his survival. And his revenge.

Leonardo DiCaprio vs Tom Hardy in a film directed by Alejandro Iñárritu? Sounds fan-f*cking-tastic to me. The one thing that might prevent Tom Hardy from appearing in THE REVENANT is his schedule. It seems like every week Hardy is in talks for another project, and I'm really hoping he won't pass on THE REVENANT because of his busy schedule.

Tom Hardy can be seen next in THE DROP on September 19, 2014, and Alejandro Iñárritu's BIRDMAN starring Michael Keaton will be in theaters on October 17, 2014.

Tom Hardy as a villain in a Western with his Bronson mustache grown out? YES.

Jeremhia Johnson's of the 2000's ?????

Reminds me that movie.
The cast and director is pretty exciting. Even if I love Inarritu, he is the one I love the less of the mexican-magic trio : Inarritu-Cuaron-Del Toro. I have seen all his movies and I only loved " 21 grams ", " Babel ", " Biutiful " and "Amores perros " are very good films but do not match 21 grams...
Oh ! Inarritu has just completed " Birdman " a movie I look forward a lot : " A washed-up actor who once played an iconic superhero must overcome his ego and family

" (with Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Zack Galifianakis...)
