Sony Pictures has officially released the first image of Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt from Quentin Tarantino's highly anticipated 9th film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood via Leonardo DiCaprio's Instagram. As expected the two lead actors look super damn cool in their brightly colored 1960s gear, and I'm really digging the vibe. Leo is supposedly playing an aging out of work actor, while Pitt plays his long time stunt double.
In case you've been living under a rock for the past year, here is the incredible ensemble cast that's been announced so far with many more still to come, plus the synopsis via Comingsoon.net.
The massive ensemble cast for the film includes Leonardo DiCaprio (Django Unchained), Brad Pitt (Inglorious Basterds), Margot Robbie (I, Tonya), Burt Reynolds (Smokey and the Bandit), Timothy Olyphant (Santa Clarita Diet), Michael Madsen (Sin City), Tim Roth (Selma), Damian Lewis (Billions), Luke Perry (The Fifth Element), Emile Hirsch (Speed Racer), Dakota Fanning (The Alienist), Clifton Collins (Pacific Rim), Keith Jefferson (The Hateful Eight), Nicholas Hammond (The Sound of Music), James Marsden (Westworld), Julia Butters (Transparent), Scoot McNairy (Halt and Catch Fire) and Al Pacino (Scarface).
Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood focuses on a male TV actor named Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) who’s had one hit western series and is looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick Cliff Booth (Pitt) — who’s also his stunt double — is looking for the same thing. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate (Rick’s neighbor in the film, portrayed by Robbie) and four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story. The movie is said to be similar to a “Pulp Fiction-like tapestry” that covers a group of characters during that summer.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is set to hit theaters on August 9th, 2019.
