First Look: Leonardo DiCaprio In "The Revenant"

EW has posted the first pics from the period revenge thriller "The Revenant".

 Based on author Michael Punke's novel, the story follows Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) a gold-seeking fur trapper who is mauled by a bear. When the two men who are were supposed to take care of him rob him and leave him to die alone, the man wills himself to survive and goes on a 350 mile journey though the wilderness.

Leo's "Inception" co-star Tom Hardy replaces Sean Penn who was attached to co-star in the pic a few years ago. We're the Millers star Will Poulter is in line to co-star.

 "Birdman" helmer Alejandro González Iñárritu is directing from an adapted screenplay he co-wrote with Mark L. Smith (The Hole),

González Iñárritu Steve Golin, Keith Redmon, David Kanter, Arnon Milchan and James W. Skotchdopole are producing the film. 

The film is being shot by "Gravity" cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki. He uses only natural light in remote locations, which means only a few hours of filming can be done each day. Production is taking place in Calgary until April for release next Fall.
Worldview Entertainment backed out of co-financing the film with New Regency following last summer's departure of its CEO amid possible personal misconduct. Megan Ellison and her Annapura Pictures rescued the film
