‘We’re the Millers” Will Poulter Joins Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘The Revenant’ (Exclusive)

After a long development process, New Regency’s adaptation of “The Revenant” seems to be closer to production. “We’re the Millers” thesp Will Poulter is in negotiations to co-star with Leonardo DiCaprio in the revenge thriller.

Sources also tell Variety that Tom Hardy is in negotiations to join the cast as well.

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is on board to direct, with a fall production start date being eyed.

Project is based on the Michael Punke novel centering on a 1820s frontiersman on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling. Mark L. Smith and Inarritu penned the adaptation.

Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Keith Redmon and David Kanter will produce along with Inarritu, Arnon Milchan and James Skotchdopole. New Regency will co-finance the film with RatPac.

Poulter may have made an impression on Fox execs who saw his talents in the upcoming adaptation of “Maze Runner,” which is already starting to gain a lot of heat.

He recently finished production on the indie “Glassland” opposite Toni Collette.

He is repped by WME and Hamilton Hodell.
