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 abiopic about the Kray brothers.
