Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (July 26, 2019)

Quote:
Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio are reuniting with Quentin Tarantino to star in the filmmaker's latest feature, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Sony Pictures announced Wednesday.

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.”

The film is set to be released worldwide on Aug. 9, 2019.

The movie is an expensive proposition for the studio, as both actors had been tipped to star in the project for weeks but negotiations had been strenuous. In fact, sources said DiCaprio was ready to walk away at one point in January.

But Sony is now pointing to the Oscar breadth of the actors' previous collaborations with Tarantino and the successful box office, as well.

Tarantino worked with Pitt in 2009's Inglourious Basterds, which grossed over $321 million globally and was nominated for eight Academy Award, with Christoph Waltz winning for best supporting actor.

DiCaprio, for his part, also starred in Tarantino’s Django Unchained, which also was an Oscar player with five nominations and two wins (best original screenplay for Tarantino and best supporting actor, again for Waltz).

“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," Tarantino said Wednesday in a statement. "I’m very excited to tell this story of an L.A. and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff.”

After some cryptic messaging from Quentin Tarantino, plot details on the director’s upcoming movie have begun surfacing.

Citing a source who has read the script for the untitled film, Vanity Fair posted a preliminary synopsis that reads as follows: “Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, Tarantino’s upcoming movie…focuses on a male TV actor who’s had one hit series and he's looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick — who’s also his stunt double — is looking for the same thing. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate and four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story.”

Charles Manson, the infamous cult leader and murderer, died of natural causes on Sunday.

Per Deadline, Tarantino is eyeing Margot Robbie (I, Tonya) to play the role of Tate, while Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, and Leonardo DiCaprio have all been floated as possibilities to star opposite her. Earlier this month, it was reported that Tarantino had finished the script for the film. He told IndieWire, vaguely, of the plot: “It’s not Charles Manson, it’s 1969.”

Vanity Fair reports Tarantino is hoping to secure a budget of approximately $100 million for the movie. In the wake of the allegations of sexual misconduct against Harvey Weinstein, Tarantino had been busy fielding offers for a new studio partner. Last week, it was confirmed that he’d reached an agreement with Sony Pictures, which secured worldwide distribution rights, after an intense bidding war.

Tarantino had worked with Weinstein for decades before severing ties and, in a frank New York Times interview, admitted to knowing about Weinstein’s alleged behavior long before it became public. “There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip,” he said. “It wasn’t second hand. I knew he did a couple of these things. I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would not have had to work with him.”

I mentioned in the 'Charles Manson Is Dead' thread that Tarantino will put his creative spin on history again like he did with WWII in Inglorious Bastards. I was never expecting a full on factual portrait of 1969. This period piece will likely be an entertaining story, meaty with dialogue like every Tarantino picture.

Re: Details on Quentin Tarantino's 9th film

Eh, no thanks to Pitt, but I'd love to see Tom Cruise in a Tarantino movie. Anything with Leo I'm game for too...sowhynotboth.gif?

Roman Polanski is cool with this?

Margot Robbie. Please no. @Obfuscation

I love Tarantino, but I don't think this will be like warping history in the vein of Inglourious Basterds. Think it'll be more clear cut, which is disappointing, but I'll definitely watch this and perhaps enjoy it.

Re: Details on Quentin Tarantino's 9th film

Always look forward to QT because I'm still waiting for his next great movie. Been waiting since Jackie Brown


Sounds like Sharon Tate won't last long in this, so I won't care if Margot Robbie spares it up as the ill-fated Tate. Obviously this is conjecture that could be 100% inaccurate. Pitt seems likely since he's a QT alum.

inb4 Tim Roth, Sam Jackson, and etc


Also wasn't aware that an actor is the main character. So the focus won't actually be on historic real people.

Re: Details on Quentin Tarantino's 9th film

Meh... Manson sounded more appealing.

Robert De Niro... Old Manson
Robert Pattinson... Manson
Keira Knightley... Tate

No to Pitt and DiCaprio. And please no more Waltz.

I love being correct all the time.

tbf, I knew about this thanks to being discussed in the movie thread, but still. They're gonna ham-fist this broad into everything. Let the joke continue to run its course.

Sounds like Summer Of Sam mixed with a HBO show set in the 70's like The Deuce or Vinyl.

But I'm definitely going to be watching. The combination of Tarantino and Manson is appealing enough.

Re: Details on Quentin Tarantino's 9th film

Tom Cruise has to be thinking about entering the next phase of his career soon and being directed by Quentin Tarantino may be his ticket to career revitalization (beyond periodically latching back on to the hugely profitable Mission: Impossible franchise). The Cruise who migrated from A-list Hollywood auteur to A-list Hollywood auteur through most of the '90s and 2000s coming back would be terrific to see.

Sounds like Tarantino's world will have the Manson killings as backdrop as has been discussed here.

Sony has the best assortment of music titles with which to pepper the sure-to-be-catchy soundtrack. Warner Bros. gave the best pitch--no studio knows how to woo big-time directors like they do and they have made that one of their trademarks since Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick called the studio their longtime home--but Tarantino was concerned about Warner Bros. losing faith in the film the way the studio clearly gave up on his friend, Paul Thomas Anderson's, Inherent Vice.

Looking forward to this in 2019.

If Tarantino is serious--and I suspect that he is--about making ten films and calling it a career, for fear of losing his cinematic punch in old age, he probably would like to have his tenth and final film released in 2022, thirty years after Reservoir Dogs.
