Tom Hardy's Time Has Come, from Miller's 'Fury Road' to Gonzalez Inarritu's 'The Revenant,' with DiCaprio

Tom Hardy is coming up in a number of films at various stages of production. Due in May 2015 is 69-year-old Australian doctor-turned-director George Miller's long-in-the-works summer release, the "Mad Max" reboot "Fury Road," which hit the cover of EW this week for their terrific "Apocalypse Issue." Also in the works for the in-demand Hardy are the Dennis Lehane robbery story "The Drop," which Fox Searchlight should unveil at Telluride or Toronto, Daniel Espinosa's post-World War II Russian thriller "Child 44," starring Gary Oldman (Lionsgate), and the title role in still-in-development Elton John biopic "Rocketman." Now Hardy will join his "Inception" costar Leonardo DiCaprio in New Regency’s western “The Revenant,” directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

DiCaprio to Join Gonzalez Iñárritu's 'The Revenant' for New Regency

New Regency CEO Brad Weston is feeling his oats. Remember, this company took the risk of actually financing "12 Years a Slave," which was produced by Brad Pitt's Plan B and released by Fox Searchlight. This upset Paramount, which then lost Plan B to New Regency, which is housed at Twentieth Century Fox. New Regency is not only going forward with David Michod's "The Operators" as a Pitt starring vehicle, but now they've got Leonardo DiCaprio starring in Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu's next, "The Revenant."

Terence Winter Talks Working with Scorsese on 'Wolf of Wall Street' and 'Boardwalk Empire'

"I even had Jordan come in to CAA to do one of those motivational speeches for me. He never had it on tape, so we filled up the conference room with assistants and agents. He was reluctant, it took a few minutes to warm up and become the guy in the movie. It was one of those amazing things to watch. It was great. A lot of his words are in there."
