Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood ensemble is pretty incredible so far, with Burt Reynolds, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell and Michael Madsen added this week. They joined the previously announced Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, who will lead the film.
Also this week, Margot Robbie confirmed she’s playing Sharon Tate.
No word yet on what role he’ll be playing, but we’ve learned today that Timothy Olyphant is currently in talks to join the film in a leading role capacity.
Tarantino’s film has been referred to as a Pulp Fiction-like tapestry of stories filled with characters around LA in the summer of 1969, before the Manson murders were committed. Sony Pictures stepped up to acquire the film and it is set for August 9, 2019, release worldwide. Sony described the film as a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (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.
