TOM Hardy is to reunite with his Inception co-star Leonardo DiCaprio for new thriller, The Revenant.

The British actor has been linked to the project for some weeks but needed to find time in his hectic schedule before fully committing.

Based on the Michael Punke novel, The Revenant will follow a frontiersman in the 1820s as he embarks on a path of revenge against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling.

Mark L. Smith and Alejandro González Inarritu, who is also directing, penned the adaptation.

Another British actor, Will Poulter (of We’re The Millers fame) is also in negotiations to join the cast.

Hardy was most recently seen in the Steven Knight’s acclaimed indie Locke and also has Mad Max movie Fury Road, Kray tinws film Legend, Child 44 and TV series Peaky Blinders in various stages of development.
