Ladies (and some men), get ready to spot Leonardo Dicaprio as he will be making his way to Vancouver this fall to film The Revenant.

DiCaprio will play the film’s main character Hugh Glass, a fur trapper who sets his sights on revenge on those who left him for dead following a bear mauling.

It is based on the novel of the same title by Michael Punke and is set in wilderness of the American frontiers during the 1820s.

Joining DiCaprio in British Columbia will be Tom Hardy, Will Poulter and Domhnall Gleeson. Filming begins in Vancouver on September 29 and is slated for a six month shoot.

The film will be directed by Mexican filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and is set for a Christmas 2015 release.
