QUENTIN TARANTINO’S NINTH FILM TITLED ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD; WILL STAR LEONARDO DICAPRIO AND BRAD PITT
Culver City CA – February 28, 2018 -- Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film will be titled ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD, and will star Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group announced today. The film will be released worldwide on August 9, 2019.
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."

Tarantino worked with Pitt in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS which grossed over $321 million worldwide and was nominated for eight Academy Awards®, winning for Best Supporting Actor. DiCaprio starred in the director’s DJANGO UNCHAINED, which grossed over $425 million worldwide, and was nominated for five Academy Awards®, and won for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor. His most recent film was the $532 million-grossing THE REVENANT in 2015, for which he won the Oscar® for Best Actor.
"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. I’m very excited to tell this story of an LA and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff."
