Two fine men in one wild Western: Tom Hardy is confirmed to reunite with Leonardo DiCaprio in the film adaptation of author Michael Punke’s The Revenant. The 1820s-set saga will follow DiCaprio as a frontiersman who seeks revenge against the group of travelers who left him stranded after a near-fatal bear attack.

Tina Fey is shipping out. The talent will team with Crazy, Stupid, Love directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa to bring a wartime reporter’s memoir, The Taliban Shuffle, to life. [Vulture]

Walter White… lives? The producers of Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul say the new AMC drama will have a “flexible timeline,” that will allow for a Bryan Cranston cameo, or two. [New York Daily News]

There’s a thief on the loose. The now-famous bench where Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort fall in love in The Fault in Our Stars has gone missing. The green seat, once erected along Amsterdam’s Leidsegracht canal, reportedly disappeared a month ago, and has since been replaced by a large flowerpot. [The Hollywood Reporter]

We haven’t seen the last of Anna and Queen Elsa. Frozen’s dynamic duo are coming to real life by way of ABC’s fantasy drama, Once Upon A Time. Actress Elizabeth Lail will assume the role of Anna, while Greek alum (you know you watched that show), Cappie Scott Michael Foster will play Kristoff. [Huffington Post]
