Leonardo DiCaprio Talks About The Difficulties In Shooting ‘The Revenant’ | Film News
Leonardo DiCaprio talked to CBS This Morning’s co-host Charlie Rose about his upcoming film, The Revenant, and the challenges that went along with such a demanding performance.
The actor described the movie as a “chapter of [his] life rather than a film commitment”, as well as the ‘toughest film’ he’s ever been part of. This makes sense, given the fact that DiCaprio and the rest of the cast had to endure extreme weather conditions, adjusting the film’s shots accordingly.
“…There for nine months in subzero temperatures in Calgary, real locations, far-off locations, we looked at this as a grand sort of artistic experiment,” he told Rose.
“We rehearsed meticulously all day long with Chivo and Alejandro to pull off some very crucial and hard-to-do shots. And then we’d have an hour-and-a-half of natural light and it became like live theatre at the end of the day, this frenetic pace, this intensity that we needed to keep up with.”
The Revenant tells the story of Hugh Glass, a frontiersman in the 1820s who struggles to survive and get revenge after being brutally mauled by a bear. Hopefully, DiCaprio’s committed performance in the role of Glass will finally be enough to grant him the much-desired Oscar!
