Variety reports that Domnhall Gleeson is joining the cast of The Revenant which also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Poulter and Tom Hardy. Thanks to Empire, we have a short synopsis of the film, based on Michael Punke’s novel of the same name:

The Revenant follows an ill-fated fur trapping expedition to chilly 1820s South Dakota. Hunter Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) is mauled by a bear in the harsh climate, and his companions leave him for dead. To add insult to injury, two men are assigned to bury what everyone assumes is his dead body. But the greedy pair decides to rob him and leave him helpless instead. Glass recovers, and swears bloody revenge…

This is one of many new films for Dom, best known to us as Bill Weasley but soon to become a huge star, thanks to the new Star Wars film.
