Another A-list actor has been added to Tarantino’s new film.
As previously reported, Quentin Tarantino is currently working on a film surrounding the Manson Murders. Leonardo DiCaprio is set to star and joining him is Brad Pitt.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood can be described as
“A story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood,” according to Sony Pictures via Deadline. “The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore… But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor… Sharon Tate.”
Tarantino has previously worked with both actors and tapped Suicide Squad’s Margot Robbie for the role of Sharon Tate.
In a statement the famed director says, “I’ve been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles county most of my life, including in 1969, when I was seven years old,” Tarantino said in a statement. “I’m very excited to tell this story of an LA and a Hollywood that doesn’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be more excited about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio and Pitt as Rick and Cliff.
The film is set to release August 9th, 2019, 50 years after Tate’s murder.
