Quentin Tarantino has actually transformed Hollywood to look like as it was in the 1960s for his new film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The story is set in the summer of 1969 and today we received a new set video that offers us our best look at the set so far. It’s so cool to see a different era of Hollywood brought to life for real. It’s like going back in time with a time machine.
Tarantino’s new film has been reported as a Pulp Fiction-like film that focuses on characters around Los Angeles in the summer of 1969. The Manson Family murders serve as a backdrop to the story, which follows the two lead characters Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), a 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), who will be played by Robbie.
Damian Lewis will play Steve McQueen; Dakota Fanning will appear as Squeaky Fromme, the Manson follower who later tried to kill President Gerald Ford; Nicholas Hammond will play director Sam Wanamaker; and Emile Hirsch is playing Jay Sebring, the Hollywood hairstylist who was one of four victims in the Tate murders. Luke Perry will play Scotty Lancer, Clifton Collins Jr. will play Ernesto The Mexican Vaquero, Keith Jefferson is Land Pirate Keith, and Al Pacino is playing Marvin Schwarz, who will be DiCaprio’s character’s agent in the story.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood also stars James Marsden, Michael Madsen, Timothy Olyphant, Burt Reynolds, and Tim Roth. The movie will hit theaters on August 9th, 2019.
