Anonymous Content to Produce; RatPac and Worldview Entertainment to Co-Finance

LOS ANGELES, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Leonardo DiCaprio will star in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's film "The Revenant" for New Regency it was announced today by Brad Weston, president and chief executive officer. The film, written by Mark L. Smith and Inarritu, is scheduled to start production this September with a fall 2015 release planned through New Regency's distribution deal with 20th Century Fox. Anonymous Content's Steve Golin, Keith Redmon and David Kanter will produce the film along with Inarritu, Arnon Milchan and James Skotchdopole. Executive producer is Paul Green. RatPac and Worldview Entertainment will co-finance the film.

DiCaprio, recently nominated for his fifth Academy Award®, will follow up his heralded performance in the enormously successful "The Wolf of Wall Street" with the role of Hugh Glass in "The Revenant." Glass is a 19th century fur trapper who is mauled by a grizzly bear, left for dead and then robbed.  When he survives against all odds, he sets out on a treacherous journey to exact revenge on his betrayers in this captivating and inspiring story based on the Michael Punke novel, The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge.

"The Revenant" marks New Regency's second collaboration with the Academy Award®-nominated Inarritu. The company co-financed "Birdman" along with Fox Searchlight and Worldview Entertainment. The film, which stars Michael Keaton, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts, will be released on October 17 by Fox Searchlight.

New Regency has a busy fall, kicking off with the release of the eagerly-anticipated David Fincher film "Gone Girl," to be released by 20th Century Fox on October 3, followed by the release of Inarritu's "Birdman" with Fox Searchlight and Worldview on October 17 and then Cameron Crowe's Untitled Film with Sony and RatPac Entertainment on December 25.  The company is currently in pre-production on several 2015 releases including the Tom Hardy starrer "Splinter Cell," with Ubisoft, directed by Doug Liman and slated for a late summer start; and New Regency and Ubisoft will also soon attach a filmmaker and begin production on "Assassin's Creed" starring Michael Fassbender
