Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is starting to round out its cast. In the past, we’ve reported that Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Burt Reynolds, Timothy Olyphant, Michael Madsen, and Tim Roth had all joined the picture, but now we have a handful of other stars that have hopped on board.
According to Deadline, Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Dakota Fanning, Emile Hirsch, Clifton Collins Jr., Keith Jefferson, and Nicholas Hammond have all joined the flick. Luckily, those aren’t all the details we have, as they’ve also revealed who will be playing what in this ode to ’60s cinema.
“Lewis will play the iconic actor Steve McQueen; Fanning is set as Squeaky Fromme, the Manson disciple who later tried to assassinate President Gerald Ford; Hammond will play director Sam Wanamaker; and Hirsch is Jay Sebring, the Hollywood hairstylist who was one of four victims in the Tate murders on Cielo Drive. Perry is set to play Scotty Lancer, Collins is Ernesto The Mexican Vaquero, and Keith Jefferson is Land Pirate Keith.”
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is being described as a Pulp Fiction-esque film set in the summer of 1969. DiCaprio stars as a former Western TV star and Pitt plays his longtime stunt double. Both are struggling to make it in a business that has evolved beyond them, and somehow the Manson murders play a role.
Sony is distributing the film for Tarantino, who went on an extensive search for a new one after the whole Weinstein debacle went down.
