Brad Pitt set to join Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Brad Pitt (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) is set to join Leonardo DiCaprio (Inception) in Quentin Tarantino’s Sharon Tate film, now titled Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, according to THR. The Sony Pictures film will be released in theaters on August 9, 2019.
Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, Tarantino’s upcoming movie focuses on a male TV actor who’s had one hit series and is looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick — who’s also his stunt double — is looking for the same thing. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate and four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story.
Brad Pitt starred in Quentin Tarantino’s film Inglorious Basterds, while Leonardo DiCaprio starred in his film Django Unchained. Pitt is also known for starring in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Twelve Monkeys, Moneyball and World War Z.
The release date for the film will mark the 50th anniversary of the murder of Sharon Tate and four others on August 9, 1969.
