Quentin Tarantino's penultimate film now has a title, a synopsis and two castmembers confirmed.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood will see Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, working together for the first time in their career, as Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth, one (DiCaprio) a struggling actor who formerly worked on a Western TV series, and the other (Pitt) his stunt double.
Per the synopsis, the story takes place in "Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood," and sees the two characters struggle "to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor…Sharon Tate."
The word is that Margot Robbie is due to sign up to play Sharon Tate, with Tom Cruise also expected to be signed on as a Los Angeles County prosecutor who works on the Tate-LaBianca murders. For Tarantino, it seems like a pretty personal film for him.
In the film's announcement statement, he said that he's "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."
Filming is set to begin in June, with a release date slated for August 9th, 2019.
