Presumably intended as an homage to Sergio Leone and his Once Upon A Time In America,  Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is Tarantino’s third consecutive film title (after Django and The Hateful Eight) in western zone. The film is currently scheduled for an August 9, 2019 release.

Although they’ve never appeared in a film together (outside The Audition, a Martin Scorsese short from 2015 that’s never had a commercial release), both men have worked with Tarantino before. Pitt in Inglourious Basterds, and DiCaprio in Django Unchained. This time, the two will play old friends making their way through Hollywood in the late 1960s, DiCaprio as washed-up cowboy actor Rick Dalton, and Pitt as his long-time stunt double, Cliff Booth.
