Will Poulter In Talks to Join ‘The Revenant’

Will Poulter In Talks to Join 'The Revenant'

Here’s a little Friday morning casting gossip: Will Poulter is in discussions to join Alejandro González Iñárritu’s next film, “The Revenant.”  

Leonardo DiCaprio will star as Hugh Glass, a 19th century fur trapper mauled by a bear, robbed and left for dead who sets out for revenge.  New Regency is teaming up with Brett Ratner’s Ratpac and Steve Golin’s Anonymous Content to finance the film, and New Regency is behind Iñárritu’s next project, “Birdman.”

Poulter won the Rising Star Award at this year’s BAFTAs.  He played Eustace Scrubb in “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” and starred in last year’s pot comedy “We’re the Millers.”  Poulter has several projects due out this year, including “Plastic” and “The Maze Runner.”

Tom Hardy (“Locke”) is also reportedly in talks to join “The Revenant.”
