Actor Leonardo DiCaprio will star in The Revenant, a movie about an 1820s frontiersman.

The movie will be directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Babel) according Variety.com.

The film is based on Michael Punkes's novel, which follows a frontiersman who seeks vengeance against those who left him to die after a bear attack. It is set to be released in 2015.

DiCaprio was nominated for an Oscar earlier this year for his performance in The Wolf of Wall Street.
