IMDb profile

The Revenant is an upcoming American western thriller film directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu. The screenplay by Mark L. Smith and Iñárritu is based in part on Michael Punke's 2003 novel of the same name. It is inspired by the life of frontiersman Hugh Glass. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, and Will Poulter.

Development of the film began in August 2001 when Akiva Goldsman purchased Punke's manuscript with the intent of producing the film. The film was originally set to be directed by Park Chan-wook with Samuel L. Jackson in mind to star, and later by John Hillcoat with Christian Bale in negotiations to star. Both directors left the project, and Iñárritu signed on to direct in August 2011. In April 2014, after several delays in production due to other projects, Iñárritu confirmed that he was beginning work on The Revenant and that DiCaprio would play the lead role. Principal photography began in October 2014 and ended in August 2015.

The film will have a limited theatrical release in the United States on December 25, 2015, followed by a wide release on January 8, 2016.
