Quentin Tarantino is underway with his 1969-set Los Angeles-based movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and in a smart move to get ahead of the sure-to-be-numerous paparazzi surrounding the on-location shoot, the film’s lead has gone ahead and released the first official photo.
As a refresher, Tarantino’s new feature will follow a former western TV series star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) as they struggle to make it into big-time Hollywood, all while Manson and his followers are staking out their sinister plans. Among the cast is Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate, Burt Reynolds, Timothy Olyphant, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Scoot McNairy, and Zoë Bell.
Also in the epic cast is Al Pacino as Marvin Shwarz, agent to Leonardo DiCaprio’s character, Damian Lewis will play the iconic actor Steve McQueen, Dakota Fanning is Manson family member Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, Clifton Collins will play Ernesto the Mexican Vaquero, Luke Perry plays Scotty Lancer, Emile Hirsch is hairstylist Jay Sebring, Nicholas Hammond is director Sam Wanamaker, Keith Jefferson takes the role of Land Pirate Keith, and James Marsden and Julia Butters have also joined in unknown roles.
