Quentin Tarantino’s movies have always assembled impressive casts, and his latest is no exception. Once Upon a Time In Hollywood is about to start production, and the ’60s-set film will star Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, and James Marsden. The first image from the movie has now been revealed.
It was posted by DiCaprio on his Instagram page, and it shows him and Pitt in character as Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth. Dalton is the former star of a Western TV show whose career has fallen on hard times, while Booth is his best friend and stunt double. Check it out below:
Once Upon a Time In Hollywood is set in 1969, and Robbie is set to play actress Sharon Tate, who is Dalton’s neighbour. In real life, Tate was killed by the Manson family, although it is unknown if the Manson killings will feature in the movie.
DiCaprio and Pitt have worked with Tarantino before; Pitt starred in Inglourious Basterds, while DiCaprio was in Django Unchained. This is the directors’s ninth movie; in 2016 he stated that he would retire from directing after ten films, so it’s possible that Once Upon a Time In Hollywood will be his penultimate film. It was recently reported that he was writing a new Star Trek film. Last month it was confirmed that there are multiple Star Trek movies in development at Paramount, but it is unknown if Tarantino’s is one of these.
Once Upon a Time In Hollywood hits theaters on August 9, 2019.
