DiCaprio And Hardy To Star In Western Together

Tom Hardy is officially confirmed to star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in a new Western called The Revenant.

The British actor has been linked to the project for a while but reportedly needed to sort out his busy schedule before he could commit.

The film, with a script by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, centres around a 19th century fur trapper who is on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling.

It is thought cameras will begin rolling in September with a release date in late 2015.

Hardy and DiCaprio last worked together on Christopher Nolan's award-winning Inception.

Bafta Rising Star award winner Will Poulter is also in negotiations to join the cast.

Hardy was most recently seen in Locke but is currently filming a biopic about the Kray brothers.
