Leonardo DiCaprio will play Rick Dalton, former star of a western TV series, while Brad Pitt will be his longtime stunt double, Cliff Booth.

"Both 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 added.

The article also reveals the title of the movie which is Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The movie has the odd release date of early August of next year and should start shooting soon.
