Pretty much any Quentin Tarantino movie is highly anticipated. But when you drop the likes of Margot Robbie, Burt Reynolds, Timothy Olyphant, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Clifton Collins, Keith Jefferson, Nicholas Hammond, James Marsden, Julia Butters, Scoot McNairy, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in the mix, the crazy rises to a whole new level.

After months of speculation as to the grimey details of Quentin Tarantino's new flick Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, we finally have confirmation on all the major details of the project.

Both Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, who starred in Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained respectively, are set to star, playing the parts of ex-Western Star Rick Dalton and his long-time stunt double Cliff Booth.

The film is set in 1969, the dawning of a new age for Hollywood that grows increasingly unfamiliar to Dalton and his partner.

"I’ve been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was seven years old,” says Tarantino. “I’m very excited to tell this story of an L.A. and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff."

"Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognise anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbour…Sharon Tate I’ve been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was seven years old.
