Quentin Tarantino’s new Sharon Tate flick Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has just added some more big names to its already impressive cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Burt Reynolds, Timothy Olyphant, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth.
Today Deadline reports Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Clifton Collins Jr, Keith Jefferson and Nicholas Hammond have joined the film in supporting roles.
Fanning is set as Squeaky Fromme, the Manson disciple who later tried to assassinate President Gerald Ford and Hirsch is Jay Sebring, the Hollywood hairstylist who was one of four victims in the Tate murders on Cielo Drive.
On top of that Lewis will play the iconic actor Steve McQueen; Hammond will play director Sam Wanamaker. Perry is set to play Scotty Lancer, Collins is Ernesto The Mexican Vaquero, and Keith Jefferson is Land Pirate Keith.
The film is produced by Tarantino, David Heyman, and Shannon McIntosh. It’s set to hit theaters August 9, 2019.
The Tarantino pic has been referred to as a Pulp Fiction-like tapestry of stories set in L.A. in the summer of 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), former star of a Western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor: Tate (Robbie).
