Al Pacino Joins Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Al Pacino Joins Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

This is the first time Pacino has worked with Tarantino.

Al Pacino is joining the stellar cast of Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which is set at the time of the Manson Family's Tate and LaBianca murders in 1969.

The film is described as a Pulp Fiction-like tapestry that revolves around several characters at the height of the Manson Murders in the summer of 1969.

As previously reported, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood tells a sprawling, Los Angeles-based tale revolving around Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his long-time stunt double and sidekick, Cliff Booth (Pitt), who are trying to make the transition from the TV industry into that of feature films.

Trump arrives in Quebec for G7 summit, wants Russian Federation invited back
According to CNN , Trudeau asked Trump how he justified imposing tariffs as a national security issue during a May 25 phone call. In a series of tweets on the eve of the summit, the president gave a glimpse of the issues he's prioritizing for negotiations.

There is no indication yet if Al Pacino's character Marvin Schwanz is based on an actual talent agent from that era, but it could be possible since numerous cast members will be playing real-life characters. Who else can't wait to see him and DiCaprio tear it up alongside co-star Brad Pitt?

Tarantino's ninth movie already boasts one hell of a cast, with stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio joined by Margot Robbie, Burt Reynolds, Timothy Olyphant, Michael Madsen, and Tim Roth. Producers for the pic include Tarantino, David Heyman, Shannon McIntosh and release is set for August 9, 2019.

Pacino most recently starred in HBO's film Paterno, and he just wrapped Martin Scorsese's long-gestating crime drama The Irishman. Unfortunately for Dalton (or perhaps fortunately, knowing Tarantino) his quest for success happens to coincide with the Manson Family murders, which resulted in the deaths of actress Sharon Tate and four others.
