We’ve been waiting for some news about Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and now we’ve got a very important, denim-filled update
Hollywood legend Leonardo DiCaprio has shared with the world the first look at his latest project with Brad Pitt and Quentin Tarantino and we’re pleased to confirm… there IS double denim.
DiCaprio posted on Instagram a first image from the Sony Pictures film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Tarantino’s latest flick is loosely centred around the Manson family and the murder of actress Sharon Tate in 1969.
Tarantino, who was earlier this year accused by Kill Bill star Uma Thurman of endangering her on set, said about this latest project: “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 7 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.”
Already confirmed for the film is this rather star-studded line-up: Leonardo DiCaprio; Brad Pitt; Margot Robbie; Burt Reynolds; Timothy Olyphant; Michael Madsen and Tim Roth.
Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsch and Dakota Fanning are all jumping aboard, as well.
Lewis will play movie legend Steve McQueen, Fanning will be playing one of Manson’s disciples, Hirsch will appear as stylist Jay Sebring, who was murdered alongside Tate and Perry will play Scott Lancer, who appears to be a fictional character.
It’s previously been confirmed that Tarantino has asked Ennio Morricone to compose music for the film, which is also very good news.
Tarantino has said that the movie focus on Pitt and DiCaprio’s characters - Cliff Booth and Rick Dalton, two actors that live next door to Sharon Tate.
The film is out August 2019.
