Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio to star in Quentin Tarantino's new film

Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio to star in Quentin Tarantino's new film”

Sony Pictures acquired the film after Tarantino was forced to pull it away from The Weinstein Company because of the company's woes. And it pays direct homage to the Sergio Leone epics Once Upon a Time in the West and Once Upon a Time in America, and could be considered a spiritual end to a trilogy.

Deadline reported the news on Wednesday (February 28th) that the long-rumoured project, to which Oscar-winner DiCaprio had already been attached, now had an official title and a synopsis.

Quentin Tarantino's next movie is at least tangentially connected to the murder of Sharon Tate.

According to an official announcement from Sony Pictures which came on Wednesday, Academy Award victor Leonardo DiCaprio will join Brad Pitt for the upcoming Quentin Tarantino movie about Sharon Tate.

This is the first time the two A-listers will appear in a film together.

The film "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" will be based in Los Angeles throughout 1960s with the bulk of the story taking place in 1969.

"DiCaprio will play Rick Dalton, former star of a western TV series, while Pitt will be his longtime stunt double, Cliff Booth", wrote Variety's Justin Kroll. Both actors are struggling to survive in this new age Hollywood but one person they do recognize is Rick's next door neighbor - Sharon Tate.

Sony will release Once Upon a Time in Hollywood on August 9, 2019 - the 50th anniversary of the day the Manson family committed the LaBianca murders, and the day after Tate was killed. The production will be quite expensive. Jennifer Lawrence or Margot Robbie is also expected to join the cast of Tarantino's upcoming movie.

Instead of being cast as Charles Manson as many thought he would be, Leonard DiCaprio will instead be playing the role of Rick Dalton. That's pretty big billing, even for Tarantino.

For both DiCaprio and Pitt, this will mark their second times working with Tarantino, so the directors will be familiar with his style and work ethic. Christopher Waltz took home Best Supporting Actor for the movie. The director has also worked with DiCaprio in Django Unchained in 2012.

To turn a profit, the movie will need to gross at least $300 million worldwide.
