New Regency boarding ‘The Revenant’

Fox will distribute American West drama from helmer Inarritu

New Regency is in talks to come aboard Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s American West drama “The Revenant” with Twentieth Century Fox distributing.

Regency would produce with Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, David Kanter and Keith Redmon.

Anonymous originally set up the project and “Vacancy” scribe Mark L. Smith wrote the screenplay.

The project is based on the novel “The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge” by Michael Punke and published in 2003.

Novel is set in 1823 and centers on a fur trapper who’s mauled by a grizzly bear and robbed by the two men enlisted to stay with him. Fueled by anger, the trapper survives and makes his way through hundreds of miles of uncharted wilderness to exact retribution.

Pic is among the first projects New Regency has signed on to since its exec shakeup. In September, news broke that co-chairs Hutch Parker and Bob Harper would exit by year’s end, while founder Arnon Milchan brought former Paramount exec Brad Weston in as CEO. Earlier this month, company came aboard to co-produce the Allen Hughes-helmed drama “Broken City,” with Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe attached to star.

20th Century Fox-based Regency also closed a $500 million credit facility last month.
