Yesterday we learned that half the people in Tinseltown had joined the cast of Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and many of us assumed that was the end of that: surely, we thought, there would be no more roles to fill. We were wrong.
According to Variety, living legend and outside-voices enthusiast Al Pacino has also joined the production as Marvin Shwarz, agent to Leonardo DiCaprio's Rick Dalton. He joins a cast that also includes Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Clifton Collins Jr., Keith Jefferson, Nicholas Hammond, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Burt Reynolds, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Timothy Olyphant.
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. Things get complicated (how, we don't know), when the Manson Family arrives on the doorstep of Dalton's next door neighbor, Sharon Tate (Robbie).
We continue to be fascinated about this one and are eager to learn more. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood heads into production this summer, on its way to an arrival in theaters next August.
