It won’t be long now and we will have the ninth film from writer/director Quentin Tarantino in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. The film is set in the late 60s in Los Angeles and brings with it an all-star cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays actor Rick Dalton. and Brad Pitt who plays his stuntman Cliff Booth.
Sometimes inspiration comes from unusual places, as Tarantino explained when he spoke with IndieWire and explained in more detail the relationship between Pitt and DiCaprio’s characters, and where the idea behind them came from. You can check it out below.
“I [Tate and Roman Polanski represent] what Rick doesn’t have. In Hollywood, there are people with great success and great failure and medium potential — will they ever live up to their potential? — living right next to each other, in this case literally. It’s just right there. Sharon and Roman represent the new Hollywood, and Rick is notably not part of it. He doesn’t understand it. He was taught that the way to be a leading man was the audience had to like you. If he was offered Joe Buck [Jon Voight in ‘Midnight Cowboy’], he would turn it down. He’d walk out of Easy Rider in the first 10 minutes! If he was offered Straw Dogs: ‘I’m not going to play that little wimp!’”
The trailer looks good to me, not that I was ever worried about the film, or that I need a big push to watch the latest Tarantino film. Tarantino has set up a really cool world for someone with his talents to play in. It should be another fun ride with great characters and dialogue.
