Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Adds Margot Robbie, Burt Reynolds, Kurt Russell and More

The cast for Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has grown as Margot Robbie has confirmed her involvement in the project as Sharon Tate.

Speaking to IndieWire:

“Tarantino is one of my bucket-list directors. As long as I can remember, I’ve been a huge Tarantino fan.

Beyond anything, I’ve just always wanted to see him work. And I want to see how he runs a set, and how he directs people, and what the vibe is onset, and what’s in the script, and then what happens on the day. I’m just fascinated by all of it, fascinated. So it’s going to be a crazy experience to witness it firsthand. It’s something I’ve always dreamed of doing.”

Additionally, Burt Reynolds, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, and Michael Madsen have also joined the cast. Throw in previously confirmed cast members Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, and this is shaping up to be an impressive lineup.

OUaTiH (the abbreviation I have chosen for this film) follows a former Western star and his longtime stunt double’s struggle to find success in a Hollywood that they don’t recognize anymore in 1969 Los Angeles.


What do you think of the casting so far? How does it compare to previous Tarantino flicks?
