Leonardo DiCaprio Takes On A Grizzly Bear in Upcoming Western

He plays a 19th-century fur trapper out for revenge.

by: Trent Knoss


Leonardo DiCaprio is headed from the bull market to the bear wilderness.  Entertainment Weekly reports that the Wolf of Wall Street star is set to headline The Revenant, a gritty 19th-century Western directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.    

DiCaprio will play Hugh Glass, a fur trapper who survives a vicious grizzly mauling before seeking revenge on those who betrayed him.  The film is adapted from Michael Punke's 2002 novel, which is described as "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."

Inarritu earned an Oscar nomination for directing 2007's Babel, but has made just one film since.  DiCaprio is also taking a mini-breather—he does not have any films scheduled in 2014.  The Revenant is expected to bow late next year.
