The Revenant
By Mark L Smith and Alejandro G. Iñárritu

The Revenant‘s released today, and its screenplay is available to read online via Dropbox. The screenplay is based on Michael Punke’s novel The Revenant: a Novel of Revenge, about a nineteenth century traveller who, when attacked by a bear in the wild, sets out to hunt down the former companions who left him for dead and murdered his son. In August 2001, Aiva Goldsman acquired the rights to Punke’s unfinished manuscript. Dave Rabe wrote the first draft.

And now for the Internet’s own Lex Luthor, Mr. Right’s Max Landis, who describes his favourite scene:

The scene, EXT. GRAND RIVER – DAY, is scripted as such:

“Glass’ eyes jump to the soft dirt along the river… HIS
FOOTPRINTS… an vious trail leading right to him. He
throws a glance around… nowhere to run even if he could.
So he starts backing into the river on his stomach… feet-
first… dragging a small branch over the tracks around him,
wiping them away as he moves. And his eyes are locked on the
Arikara… watching to see if they spot him.
But they haven’t yet, and Glass keeps sliding backward…
five feet off shore… only three feet deep in the murky
water and sludge. But if he goes any further, the current
will catch him… pull him into the next set of violent
rapids… and make him a clear target.”
