Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Lowdown
Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film will be titled Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. It will star Leonardo DiCaprio from Quentin Tarantino. The film will be released worldwide on August 9, 2019.
Tarantino describes it as “a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor…Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie).”
Tarantino worked with Pitt in Inglourious Basterds. That grossed over $321 million worldwide and was nominated for eight Academy Awards®, winning for Best Supporting Actor.
DiCaprio starred in the director’s Django Unchained. This grossed over $425 million worldwide, and was nominated for five Academy Awards®, and won for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor.
His most recent film was the $532 million-grossing The Revenant in 2015. For that won the Oscar® for Best Actor.
Quentin additionally commented, “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 LA and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff.”
The Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group are backing the film’s production.
Who is Sharon Tate?
The actress Sharon Tate was the star of movies like The Fearless Vampire Killers. But she became better know for what happened later. In 1969 she was the victim of one of the most grisliest of murders…
On August 9th, 1969 five bodies where found at the home of director Roman Polanski. Tate, who was Roman pregnant wife, was found “clad in a bikini nightgown.” A cord around her neck joined her body to another victim. The brutality of the killings shocked even homicide-squad detectives.
So we can’t think why Quentin Tarantino might be interested in this story!!
