Biutiful Director Signed Up to Direct a Tale of Revenge
The latest feature film adaptation of a novel from Warner Bros now has a director attached. The film, entitled “The Revenant,” will be directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.
Inarritu appears to be a perfect fit for this project as the director prefers character-driven, dark stories. “The Revenant” follows a fur trapper who is at death’s door after being mauled by a bear. The men from his crew left behind to care for him until he dies rob him instead, leaving him for dead in the wilderness. The man survives and sets out for revenge.
The story was adapted for the big screen based upon a novel by Michael Punke “The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge”. Inarritu’s previous works include “Biutiful” and “Babel.”
