Tarantino & DiCaprio talk Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

As I'm sure every human being in the world is aware, Quentin Tarantino has a new film on the way called ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD and it is all set to star Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio... and possibly Margot Robbie... we're not sure yet.

Anyhow, Tarantino and DiCaprio stopped by the recent CinemaCon and talked a bit about their secretive film (which may or may not involve Charles Manson and/or the Mason Family) letting us know that the summer of 2019 belongs to ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD.

Quentin Tarantino:

In 2019 at the end of the summer, August, as they're setting off the last explosion of the last franchise movie of the summer, Sony and myself will be coming to the theaters with the most exciting star dynamic duo since Robert Redford and Paul Newman. Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

He continues:

It all is very hush-hush and top secret and under wraps. So, I can't really go into any big details of the story. But, what I can tell you is that Once Upon A Time In Hollywood takes place during the Hollywood era of 1969. It takes place at the height of the counterculture explosion. It takes place at the time of the hippie revolution and it takes place at the height of new Hollywood. And, during this summer, little by little, block by block, we will be transforming Los Angeles into the psychedelic era of Hollywood in 1969 to be prepared for 2019.

Leonardo DiCaprio:

It's hard to speak about a film that we haven't done yet. We haven't shot a frame on, but I'm incredibly excited, like I'm sure many of you are, to see a new Quentin Tarantino movie. I'm a huge fan of this guy. Very excited to work with Brad Pitt on this film and I think that he's [Tarantino] gonna transport us into a different era-I'm a huge fan of SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, for example. Movies about Hollywood. the backstory and the mechanics of how Hollywood works. As an L.A. native being immersed in this era and time and the way he's gonna do it with such incredible authenticity and I can tell you having read the script already it's one of the most amazing screenplays he's ever written and that's saying a lot because he's done some masterworks in cinema history. So, I'm very excited to work on the film and we're gonna do our best job to make it fantastic and I think we will.
