Will Poulter could be set to star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in 'The Revenant'.

The 'We're the Millers' star is said to be in negotiations to join 'The Wolf of Wall Street' actor in the upcoming revenge thriller, which is based on the Michael Punke novel of the same name, Variety reports.

The Dark Knight Rises' Tom Hardy is also said to be in talks to join the Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu directed project, which will be produced by Anonymous Content's Steve Golin, Keith Redmon and David Kanter as well as Arnon Milchan and James Skotchdopole.

Inarritu and Mark L. Smith adapted the script from Punke's novel, which centres on an 1820s frontiersman on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after he was mauled by a bear.

Poulter is thought to have impressed executives at Fox with his performance in the upcoming adaptation of 'The Maze Runner', which is set for release in September.

The 21-year-old star also recently finished production on indie film 'Glassland' opposite 'The Sixth Sense' actress Toni Collette.

Shooting for 'The Revenant' is expected to begin later this year.
