Quentin Tarantino has added a galaxy of A-list stars to his next film 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
07 June 2018

That Quentin Tarantino eh? He knows how to get a good cast together, doesn’t he? Think about all his films, and then think about the casts - they’re all pretty much spot-on, regardless of the quality *cough* Death Proof *cough*.

And his latest flick, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, about the Sharon Tate murders, is no different.

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. Not a bad name amongst them there, you will most likely agree.

But a bunch of new draws have been added this week, with Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsch and Dakota Fanning 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 isn’t actually about the Manson murders (find this hard to believe), and will instead focus on Pitt and DiCaprio’s characters - Cliff Booth and Rick Dalton, two actors that live next door to Sharon Tate. He’s got something up his sleeve, that’s for sure.

If anything, it’s just great that Michael Madsen is still getting work - keep it up, Mike.

The film is out August 2019.
