Quentin Tarantino is known for his edgy, blood-soaked, profanity-riddled action comedies, but it looks like the prolific director has gone for something a little lighter for his ninth film judging by the trailer for the upcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. At the very least, there wasn't excessive bloodshed in the 90 seconds we've seen so far. A flick with a cast of talented actors like Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, and much more, the movie is set in 1960s Hollywood.
Margot Robbie plays Sharon Tate in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Veteran actor Burt Reynolds (Smokey and the Bandit) was originally supposed to play the role of George Spahn. Tarantino has said repeatedly he'll retire after making 10 films.
Should Tarantino return to the Croisette with his new film, it would be nearly exactly 25 years after he presented "Pulp Fiction" at the festival and took home the Palme d'Ore prize. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate (Rick's neighbor in the film, portrayed by Robbie) and four of her friends by Charles Manson's cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story. Other stars cast in the film include Dakota Fanning, Bruce Dern, Damian Lewis, Al Pacino, Emile Hirsch and Lena Dunham.
"Once Upon a Time In Hollywood" movie is directed by Quentin Tarantino and produced by David Heyman and Quentin Tarantino. "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".
Oh, also - hard to beat a Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt team-up, to be honest.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood will hit U.S. theaters on July 26 and is set for a United Kingdom release on August 14.
