We are now learning more about Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film, including the name. Sony released the details this week, revealing the name Tarantino has chosen is Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
He also gave the studio a blurb about the movie to send out to the media…
“The story takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. 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.”
That’s right, folks. This movie will star both Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt. Two of the biggest names in Hollywood joining one of the most talented directors in Hollywood for what might be his second-to-last film.
We still don’t know who will play the role of Sharon Tate, but it’s rumored that Margot Robbie has been asked to take on the role. That rumor has not been confirmed, though.
Speaking about the movie, Tarantino revealed he’s been working on this script for five years…
“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. I’m very excited to tell this story of an LA and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff.”
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is scheduled to hit theaters August 9, 2019.
