Jesus.  $100,000,000.00 is a lot of money.

I hope Jared Leto won't be the new Mélanie Laurent.

For the Mary Harron film presumably, not this.

EXCLUSIVE (http://deadline.com/2018/01/leonardo-dicaprio-quentin-tarantino-manson-movie-casting-1202241971/): Leonardo DiCaprio has said yes to starring in Quentin Tarantino’s new movie, which will reteam the actor and director from 2012’s Django Unchained. The new film, Tarantino’s ninth as director, was scooped up by Sony and already has an August 9, 2019 release date. The deal is expected to close soon, and this will become DiCaprio’s first film since he won the Oscar for The Revenant.

What he plays, more specifically, is an actor who had his own Western show, Bounty Law, that ran on the air from 1958 to 1963. His attempt to transition to movies didn’t work out and in 1969 — the film is set at the height of hippy Hollywood movement– he’s guesting on other people’s shows while contemplating going to Italy which has become a hotbed for low-budget Westerns.

Ya’ll think SONY will drop #9 now after his ignorant defense of Polanski in 03 has resurfaced? Shouldn’t all of the Academy voters who awarded him best director that year also get equally slammed? It’s crazy when a 15 year old Howard Stern interview can tank your $100 milli movie.

Post by: jenkins on February 07, 2018, 03:02:38 PM
idk, no one knows. adding to the complexity of the situation is the fact that Polanski deserves sympathy regarding the murder of Sharon Tate. i don't even like to type that sentence but of course he does. i don't like to type that sentence because potential sympathy for Polanski doesn't outweigh, isn't more important than, the tragedy of Sharon Tate's murder. the cause is more devastating than the effect.

and the problem is that illuminating that type of sympathy, provoking that type of sympathy, misplaces emotions for a man who committed an indefensible act. so even if QT wipes away his defense, there's still the matter of Polanski in his movie. although it's better for both him and us that this is being considered sooner rather than later, it's not an easy situation.

Bad title.  Cliche, overlong, and doesn't tell you much of anything.

Title isn't great, but he's such a Leone disciple that his career dictated he had to use a variation of "Once Upon A Time" at some point. Just getting it out of the way here.

I dig it. Ten years ago I might have scoffed, but not now. (Frankly, I think #9 would have worked as a title, too.)
Title: Re: #9
Post by: jenkins on March 02, 2018, 05:58:19 PM
in many other holly scenarios DiCaprio and Pitt would be friends in some lame ass movie i couldn't give two fucks about, and it's because of QT that i can imagine this movie feeling another way.

the choice of Once Upon a Time In Hollywood taps into a global cultural identity which is always a bit lame and totally always what QT does i think it has a shade of beauty.

so they live next to Polanski/Tate's home. Polanski's name is still mentioned. only QT. if everyone'll commit to it he'll pull it off in some way i'm not currently imagining from his specific perspective.

Sharon Tate used to work out with Bruce Lee who played Kato in Green Hornet I would kill for a Bruce Lee cameo
By 1970 the Spaghetti western was dead so perhaps we can get them thinking about going to Italy to shoot one
Blaxploitation films were about to be big

anyone got the script

tarantino titles is always the least surprising thing ever. this is the 4th title a row that is almost completely stolen.

i'm expecting a huge box office success despite the backlash. maybe his biggest ever? the cast seems to be ridiculously a-list.

EXCLUSIVE: Deadline broke last July 11 that Quentin Tarantino had met with Margot Robbie and asked her to play Sharon Tate in his next film. She now has the offer and negotiations are underway to make it a reality.

What if it does his old trick again and she is saved by the power of cinema...I really dislike this aspect of Basterds.

I wonder if the actual murders will be depicted. I kind of hope not. I’ve gotten to know the case pretty intimately as of the last year or so and shudder at the thought of a typically Tarantinoan depiction of these sad, unspeakably horrifying crimes. I somehow doubt he’d get too revisionist with it, though, a la Basterds. We’ll see.

From what I understand, it will be in the background. I can imagine the main characters going to a Sharon Tate party, really excited about it, etc.

I’ve had an image in my head of Leo casually strolling down the road and there seems to be a big calamity going on in the house, but knowing their antics as neighbors he assumes it’s a rollicking party that’s just gotten a wee bit out of control..

Wow.  I'd love to see Reynolds as Spahn!  (Although given his famous sour-pussery with Boogie Nights, hard to imagine he'd be comfortable with sexy Manson Girl scenes.  Still.  I'd love to see him in the part.)

Quentin Tarantino Cast Thickens: Burt Reynolds To Star, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell, Michael Madsen Play Small Roles


Quote
EXCLUSIVE: Quentin Tarantino is expanding the cast of his upcoming film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. He is in talks with Burt Reynolds to play George Spahn, and also in early discussions with his The Hateful Eight co-stars Tim Roth, Kurt Russell and Michael Madsen to play smaller roles in the film. They would join Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, who are already set.


Reynolds has a great role in front of him, maybe the best one the iconic Deliverance star has gotten since Boogie Nights. Spahn was an 80-year old near blind man who rented his LA ranch out to be used as the location for Westerns. Charlie Manson convinced Spahn to allow him and his followers to live on the ranch, in the months before they murdered Sharon Tate and six others. In exchange for rent, Manson coerced his female followers into hopping into bed with the ranch owner, and serving as his seeing eye guides, per reports.

Yes, because he’s admitted he’ll take practically any role in order to pay for his 2 houses and feed his 6 kids. Scroll through his IMDB, the most recent 20 titles are laughable

I hope these are small roles indeed because I wanna see some new faces in a Tarantino film. not super exited about the cast so far.

The Hateful Eight was the last thing I saw him in, but between films, TV shows and video game voice overs he’s had some 40 gigs since then!

There's a certain lower-middle class of actor, primarily dudes in their 40s-60s who have name recognition from previous success, who currently make a living by simply having a set price for their services and then accepting literally any production that is willing to pay it. Madsen, Tom Sizemore, Eric Roberts, Matthew Modine, my Close Personal Friend Casper Van Dien.... They get to pay their bills, a bunch of low-budget movies increase their selling power by putting a recognizable name and face on the poster, everybody wins.

I recently heard an old interview with Clifton Collins Jr. where he said he made about $40,000 a year, being paid scale, before agent fees and union dues. He said only the DDLs of the world can afford to do a movie every few years. "The rest of us need to take what we can get" etc. This was after he had been in the Star Trek reboot.
