Al Pacino joins Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time in Hollywood

If you thought we might make it through today without yet another casting announcement regarding Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (the third in as many days!), you were sorely mistaken and, quite frankly, should feel embarrassed.

Quentin Tarantino is going ballistics with the cast of his 10 feature film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

The movie, which was originally being billed as film about the Manson murders, is shaping up to be a Pulp Fiction-style narrative that takes place in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969 and at the height of hippy Hollywood, with the murders serving as part of the background to the main narrative.

"Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" has Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio as the leads in the 1969 Mason Family story, with Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate. Variety reports that Pacino will play a Hollywood agent to DiCaprio's character by the name of Marvin Shwarz.

Also making up the cast are Damian Lewis as actor Steve McQueen, Emile Hirsch as hairdresser Jay Sebring, Dakota Fanning as Manson family member Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, along with Kurt Russell, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, and Luke Perry. It centres around Rick Dalton (played by Leonardo DiCaprio), the former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt).

Production for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is now being prepped in Los Angeles for Sony Pictures and the film is slated for release on August 9, 2019. Dalton's next door neighbor is Sharon Tate-played by Robbie-who was a famous actress and one of the most famous victims of the murderous Manson family cult.
