Brad Pitt will be joining Leonardo DiCaprio to star in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” a movie inspired by the murdered actress Sharon Tate.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie has been set for an Aug. 9, 2019, global release. It will be set in Los Angeles in 1969, during 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,” described Tarantino.

Both Pitt and DiCaprio have worked with Tarantino before on separate movies (“Inglorious Basterds,” “Django Unchained”) and both projects were honored with Oscar nominations.

For now the actress for Sharon Tate’s role has yet to be cast.
