I have mentioned the upcoming film starring Leonardo DiCaprio called “The Revenant” that tells the tale of the explorer Hugh Glass. Hugh Glass was an actual frontiersman and somewhat of a folk hero who was mauled by a bear and left for dead, but still managed to survive and make the 200 mile trek back to the nearest settlement which was Fort Kiowa in South Dakota.
Anyway, DiCaprio plays Glass in film and had to so some really disgusting stuff to portray the character. DiCaprio told Yahoo Movies that some of the sequences in “The Revenant” were the toughest that he’s had to film, namely eating raw bison liver. DiCaprio also had to wade into frozen rivers and crawl into animal carcasses. Not fun.
Regardless, DiCaprio seems very proud of the film and praised director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ambition. “The Revenat” hits theaters on December 25th.
