Al Pacino Is Joining Leonardo DiCaprio For New Tarantino Film
Al Pacino will be joining Leonardo DiCaprio in QuentinTarantino's new flick.
The film features an impressive cast including Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Burt Reynolds, Elle Fanning and Tim Roth.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood tells the story of a former western actor (DiCaprio) and his stuntman (Pitt) attempting to rebrand themselves and make it big in Hollywood in 1969 - their new life comes with a new neighbour, actress Sharon Tate (Robbie).
If you're up on your serial killer knowledge, you'll know Tate was killed by the Manson family in the same year. However, Taratino has, understandably, been reluctant to refer to his new picture as the 'Charles Manson Movie'.
The movieis reported to be similar to Pulp Fiction in that it will be a number of different stories woven together, set in LA at the height of the hippie-free-love movement.
Speaking at CinemaCon, Tarantino said it was 'probably the closest to Pulp Fiction that I've done'. Exciting.
He continued: "During this summer, we will, little by little, street by street, block by block, transform Los Angeles into the psychedelic era of Hollywood in 1969.

"I'm a huge fan of Singing in the Rain, movies about Hollywood and the backstory and how it all works.
"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 masterwork in film."
Pacino is set to play DiCaprio's agent Marvin Shwarz.
Filming has already begun on the film, which is set to hit cinemas in August next year.
