ORIGINAL STORY: Coming together for Quentin Tarantino’s ninth legendary film, the likes of Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie and the late Luke Perry will face Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Set for release in July and following a behind-the-scenes look at the film last year, we now have fresh new look at the upcoming film, courtesy of DiCaprio.
Taking to his social media overnight, the 44-year-old shared an official poster depicting himself and Pitt donned in ’60s-inspired threads. A throwback Hollywood moment, its safe to say the hype is building on this film. Loosely based on the murder of Sharon Tate (played by Margot Robbie), the story line is set during 1969, in the bustling city of Los Angeles.

“Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognise anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbour…Sharon Tate,” director Tarantino said in a statement. “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 seven years old. I’m very excited to tell this story of an L.A., and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff.”
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood will also include a long line of A-listers including Burt Reynolds, Timothy Olyphant, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Damian Lewis, Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Clifton Collins, Keith Jefferson, Nicholas Hammond, James Marsden, Julia Butters, and Scoot McNairy.
