So much star power!
While the film, now titled Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, has been referred to as the “Charles Manson movie”, the logline implies a somewhat broader focus.
Tarantino calls it “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.”
And of course it wouldn’t be a Tarantino movie without Samuel L. Jackson.
The film is still looking at a release date of August 9, 2019 — the 50 year anniversary of Tate’s murder.
