Not long ago we reported that while many folks were under the impression that Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, was set to air at Cannes, it was not yet officially on the famous film festival’s list.
Now those who had hopes of seeing the famed director’s ninth film at the festival may rejoice as the film has been officially added. Cannes Artistic director Thierry Fremaux had the following to say.
“We were afraid the film would not be ready, as it wouldn’t be released until late July, but Quentin Tarantino, who has not left the editing room in four months, is a real, loyal and punctual child of Cannes! Like for ‘Inglourious Basterds,’ he’ll definitely be there – 25 years after the Palme d’Or for ‘Pulp Fiction’ – with a finished film screened in 35mm and his cast in tow.” Fremaux described the film as a “love letter to the Hollywood of his childhood, a rock music tour of 1969, and an ode to cinema as a whole.”

While I won’t be making it to Cannes this year, it is nice to see Tarantino return to the festival, and more so, at least for me, I am excited for a new Tarantino film. I have always enojyed his films and he has assembled quite the cast for his latest including Brad Pitt and Leonardo DeCaprio. You can find a synopsis for the film below.
“A faded TV actor and his stunt double embark on an odyssey to make a name for themselves during the Helter Skelter reign of terror in 1969 Los Angeles.”
