Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar might come thanks to Alejandro Iñarritu

Following the success of his nine-time Oscar nominated film “Birdman,” Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu is off to another venture starring Leonardo DiCaprio. An exclusive released by Entertainment Weekly revealed the first look of DiCaprio in Iñarritu’s upcoming film “The Revenant.” SEE ALSO: Another great year for Mexican directors at the Oscars Based on a true story of the 19th century, the American western thriller depicts the life of Hugh Glass (DiCaprio), a fur trapper who is mauled by a bear while hunting. His companions rob him and leave him to die, but he survives and sets out to get revenge on the men who betrayed him. “He’s a brave, incredible actor. I’m so surprised about how good he is,” Iñárritu told EW of DiCaprio. “I think there’s a profound understanding of humanity that I can see through his eyes.” Joining Iñarritu and DiCaprio in this journey are actors Tom Hardy, Will Poulter and Domhnall Gleeson. The cast is currently filming in Calgary, Canada, an experience that Iñarritu likes to describe as a “fun ride.” Get a first look at @LeoDiCaprio in Alejandro Inarritu's 'The Revenant': http://t.co/HrupaNdo3N pic.twitter.com/ASUVvwHuvZ — Entertainment Weekly (@EW) January 21, 2015 With “The Revenant,” the director continues to push the boundaries of filmmaking. “It’s a very experimental thing that we’re doing here…I’m now addicted to doing things that can fail horribly or maybe that can give us a surprise.
