Leonardo DiCaprio

Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio are to reunite with director Quentin Tarantino for a film on Hollywood of a bygone era. The movie titled Once Upon a Time in Hollywood also features the character of Sharon Tate, a famous film actress of the nineteenth century.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

The movie that stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in leading roles is set in 1969 and depicts the typical Hollywood of that era. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood may feature the life and tragic death of Sharon Tate. It is scheduled to release on August 9, 2019, on the occasion of 50th death anniversary of the actress.

So summer of 69 will repeat itself in cinema houses in 2019 in the form of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. It is not much known whether the story will exactly depict an accidental but gruesome murder of 26 years old Sharon Tate.

Characters of Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio

According to media reports, Tarantino described that film’s story takes place in Los Angeles- and it is set in 1969 at the height of hippy Hollywood. Leonardo DiCaprio will play the Rick Dalton, and Brad Pitt whose personal life news made headlines after his divorce from Angelina Jolie will play the role of Cliff Booth. Both the actors try to make into a Hollywood they didn’t know before. The actress Sharon Tate lives next door to the Rick, played by Leonardo DiCaprio in the film. As the exact story of the film is not known yet, we don’t know who will play the Sharon Tate.

Brad and DiCaprio with Quentin Tarantino

Both Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio have already worked with Tarantino on successful projects. Brad Pitt worked with Tarantino in 2009’s blockbuster Inglorious Basterds that earned more than $300 million globally.

Leonardo DiCaprio also worked with Tarantino on his Oscar winner Django Unchained. The story of Once Upon A Time in Hollywood is strong as it roams around the famous murder mystery of its time. The combination of the Oscar-winning team is likely to make it a successful project for the cinema screen.

Media analysis suggests that subject matter of film will affect the Quentin Tarantino who has already apologized for his derogatory behavior with Uma Thurman on the set of Kill Bill. In the time when MeToo movement that was the theme of Golden Globes Awards, echoed in Grammys 2018 and captured the attention in the wake of sexual harassment allegations on producers, is on rife, it is inevitably difficult to appease the audience for filmmakers like Quentin.
