Tom Hardy

Just last month we learned that Babel director Alejando Gonzalez Inarritu (who won't be taking Birdman with Michael Keaton to Cannes) was going to team with Leonardo DiCaprio for The Revenant a new gritty, period thriller set in the 19th century. DiCaprio would play Hugh Glass, a fur trapper who joins the Rocky Mountain Fur Company in a speculative venture that takes him and ten other men up the Missouri River into perilous, unexplored territory. Now Schmoes Know are reporting that Tom Hardy is in "serious talks" to reteam with his Inception co-star. However, it's not clear what role Hardy might be taking. More below!

In the story, while in the wilderness, a grizzly bear mauls Glass fatally, taking him to within inches of his life. But his fellow trappers leave him behind, taking his gun and knife and leaving him for dead. After a miraculous survival over a two thousand mile trek, he returns to take revenge on those who left him to die alone in the woods. If we're going to guess, Hardy is probably the leader of the rest of the fur trappers who leave DiCaprio behind for dead. The idea of Hardy and DiCaprio going head-to-head sounds more than satisfying, especially with someone like Inarritu behind the camera. But we'll see if it really happens.
