Next year being the 50th anniversary since the infamous Manson murders of 1969. Quentin Tarantino is deeming it the ideal time to tackle the difficult subject in ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’.
Gaining a formidable pairing already in Leonardo Dicaprio and Brad Pitt, who previously collaborated with the director on Django Unchained and Inglorious Basterds, headlining the project as former Western star Rick Dalton and his stunt double Cliff Booth.
The project continues to attract quality talent, with the news that screen legend and Boogie Nights star Burt Reynolds will be playing George Spahn, the blind ranch owner whose Los Angeles land was the backdrop for such awful acts to take place as Manson convinced women to jump into bed with Spahn.
After months of fierce speculation, it has also been finally confirmed that Margot Robbie who was Oscar-nominated earlier this year for her fierce performance in ‘I Tonya’, will tackle the role of Sharon Tate.
Yet they are not alone. The film will see Tarantino reunite with The Hateful Eight’s Kurt Russell, Pulp Fiction’s Tim Roth and Reservoir Dogs’ Michael Madsen, with the trio set for smaller roles.
‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ will be released in August 2019.
