Tim Roth, Kurt Russell and Michael Madsen, who all starred in Tarantino’s Hateful Eight, are in talks to play smaller or cameo-style roles in the film.
In the movie, set in Los Angeles in 1969, Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), a former star of a Western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt) are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor…Sharon Tate.
Tarantino wrote the movie and will produce. Sony has dated Once Upon a Time in Hollywood for a worldwide release Aug. 9, 2019.
Reynolds, a Hollywood icon best known for his work on The Longest Yard, Smokey and the Bandit and Boogie Nights, is repped by Abrams Artists, LINK and Felker Toczek.
At this year’s CinemaCon, Tarantino promised that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is “probably the closest to Pulp Fiction that I have done.” He added, “Sony and myself will be coming to the theaters with the most exciting star dynamic since Paul Newman and Robert Redford.”
