The cast of Quentin Tarantino's forthcoming ninth film has just grown by three, as a number of big stars have signed on to star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.

Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning and Luke Perry will all have roles in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, at least part of which will focus on the murder of actress Sharon Tate and friends by the Manson Family in the 1960s. Pitt will play a washed-up TV actor (and DiCaprio his stunt double), who happens to live next door to Tate.

Lewis will play the role of actor Steve McQueen, Perry will play Scott Lancer and Fanning will play Squeaky Fromme in the film, which - as is befitting of any Tarantino film - has a hugely impressive ensemble cast that also includes the likes of Burt Reynolds, Margot Robbie, Emile Hirsch, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth and Timothy Olyphant, amongst others.

It's set for release in August 2019.
