Will Poulter, who recently appeared in We're the Millers and who soon stars in The Maze Runner, has, according to Variety, joined the cast of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's film The Revenant opposite Leonardo DiCaprio.
Based on the novel by Michael Punke, The Revenant stars DiCaprio as Hugh Glass, a 19th century fur trapper, who is mauled by a grizzly bear, left for dead and then robbed. When he survives against all odds, he sets out on a treacherous journey to exact revenge on his betrayers.
The New Regency project is written by Mark L. Smith and Inarritu is scheduled to start production this September with a fall 2015 release planned through New Regency's distribution deal with 20th Century Fox. Anonymous Content's Steve Golin, Keith Redmon and David Kanter will produce the film along with Inarritu, Arnon Milchan and James Skotchdopole. Executive producer is Paul Green. RatPac and Worldview Entertainment will co-finance the film.
