Leonardo DiCaprio interrupted earlier this week when he reported for work on the set of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, aka Quentin Tarantino’s Charles Manson movie. On Monday, Leo and co-star Brad Pitt were spotted in their late-1960s best, aka, a turtleneck in July.
In the film, Leo plays Rick Dalton, a former TV Western star whose longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad) just so happens to be neighbours with Sharon Tate [whom Manson murdered]. The cast includes Dakota Fanning, Luke Perry, Damian Lewis, Margot Robbie, Burt Reynolds, Timothy Olyphant, and Kurt Russell.
Here’s Leo getting some direction from Quentin Tarantino.
“Look over there, not at how good Brad looks for 54,” – Quentin to Leo, probably.
“I *do* look pretty good for 54,” – Brad, probably.
Brad, probably texting me about how good he looks for 54.
“You once said you were really into. Tell me everything you know,” – Leo to Brad, probably.
Leo, probably contemplating life at 50 (which will happen in 7 years).
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will be released on July 26, 2019, just weeks shy of the 50th anniversary of the murder of Tate and four other people by members of Charles Manson’s infamous cult. The film is one of at least three movies about the Manson murders set to be released in the next year.
