Peace, love and murder? Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt are totally in.
Yep, DiCaprio and Pitt have officially signed up for Quentin Tarantino’s next film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
As the title suggests, the story takes place in Los Angeles, where characters Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), a former Western TV series actor, and Cliff Booth (Pitt), his former stunt double, struggle to wrap their heads around an industry heavily impacted by the hippie culture of 1969. Despite the shifting morals and values of ’60s-era Hollywood, one of the few figures the duo does recognize is Rick’s next-door neighbor—Sharon Tate.
Though little else has been revealed about the plot, it’s safe to say the film will touch on Tate’s infamous August 9, 1969, murder at the hands of Charles Manson’s followers. After all, the film is set to be released on August 9, 2019.
