Tarantino's latest adds Burt Reynolds, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth & Michael Madsen!

Tarantino's latest adds Burt Reynolds, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth & Michael Madsen!

Deadline reports that Academy Award nominee and acting legend Burt Reynolds is in talks to star in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

The Australian actress will be joining an all star cast, headlined by herself, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.

Touting a budget close to $100 million, Sony plans to release Once Upon a Time in Hollywood on August 9th, 2019 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Tate murders. "Charlie Manson convinced Spahn to allow him and his followers to live on the ranch, in the months before they murdered Sharon Tate and six others".

Tarantino has provided the chance for film audiences to rediscover great actors from the '70s who were largely forgotten about, from David Carradine to John Travolta, Pam Grier, Robert Forster, and Michael Parks to name a few.

Following a lengthy negotiation process, Robbie has officially announced (via an interview with IndieWire) that she'll be playing Sharon Tate inOnce Upon a Time in Hollywood.

California becomes first state requiring all new homes be built with solar
California's housing department estimates that the state needs to build 180,000 new housing units annually to keep prices stable. The Sunshine State's solar demand slowed up a bit previous year with excess renewable power being generated.

The original story takes place in the summer of 1969 in Los Angeles, set against the backdrop of the Charles Manson murders.

Curiouser and curiouser, but not entirely shocking: Tarantino's already downplayed the amount of Manson Family material in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and a few off-the-record things we've heard indicate that some of the real-life people set to appear as characters in the film will have.eh, let's just say "less screen time than you might expect". She joins Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, who were previously attached to the project. Given that the movie is set in Los Angeles in 1969, and the fictional character DiCaprio plays lives next door to Tate, the story is expected to look at her death at the hands of Charles Manson's family of followers. The Titanticactor's casting as an older actor carries a bit of irony.

"I always want to play supporting roles". The actor starred in the late 1960s TV series Hawk and guest starred on shows like Gentle Ben and The F.B.I. before he became a major box office draw in the 1970s' films Deliverance, The Longest Yard and Smokey and the Bandit.

Tarantino recently talked up the movie at Sony's CinemaCon presentation.
