Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, Tarantino’s upcoming movie focuses on a male TV actor who’s had one hit series and is looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick—who’s also his stunt double—is looking for the same thing.

August 9, 2019 release date. 50th anniversary of the Tate murders..

Budget estimated at $100mil. Production rumored for June 2018 in Los Angeles.

Brad Pitt is reportedly rumored for the detective role who investigates the murders; Jennifer Lawrence is repoedly rumored for a role as a member of the Manson Family; Margot Robbie will reportedly be doing the role of Sharon Tate.

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.
Title: Re: #9
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.

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.

By 1970 the Spaghetti western was dead so perhaps we can get them thinking about going to Italy to shoot one

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.

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.

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.

Made a visit to the Hollywood Blvd set today (because, how many chances to do that will I get?).  They were shooting interiors inside Musso Franks all day, but I'm fascinated by film sets--and curious to the point of annoyance--so I had no trouble entertaining myself talking to crew, security, etc.  Spotted Kurt and Brad when the company broke for lunch.  Knew I had to stay cool, photo-wise around them, but took some shots (https://photos.app.goo.gl/d7foaxxTTjLQgvpv8) of the work being done to get ready for the exterior shooting next week.

Sharon Tate’s Sister Gives Blessing To Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ (https://theplaylist.net/tate-tarantino-once-upon-set-video-20180724/)

Debra Tate says that Tarantino explained the plot to put her mind at ease. She says, “This movie is not what people would expect it to be when you combine the Tarantino and Manson names.” Debra Tate is also pleased that Sony moved the release date up a couple weeks, to avoid the 50th anniversary, saying that the original August 2019 date was “tacky and exploitative.”

It's just a teaser poster, but for a movie that huge it's weird that they let an intern make it during his/her lunch break.

You think his next film will be promoted as the "The LAST film from Quentin Tarantino"? I mean, he has been putting that "the -th" film on the posters since Kill Bill and hyped the "only 10 films" for years now.

It will be interesting to see what he believes to be a worthwhile swan song in his filmography. I could see him wanting to do a trilogy with either Kill Bill or a third western, but at the same time that would be kind of underwhelming imo. He'll probably make TV shows after he's done making movies and I would rather see a Kill Bill TV show at some point.

I really hope so, and then when he inevitably caves and makes an 11th, he can bill it on screen as The 2nd 1st Film From Quentin Tarantino

"Not good" for Tarantino. So, you know, still very enjoyable. But I thought The Hateful Eight would suck and it's probably my favorite Tarantino with Jackie Brown and Pulp Fiction.  :)

Nothing in that trailer that makes me any less excited to see the film opening weekend, come July.  I'm a bit biased, though.  Quentin shot all over L.A. for several months (!), and I hung around a few of the sets here and there (particularly the Hollywood Blvd stuff). And, having grown up in L.A. (I was actually attending Hollywood High in '69) it should be a nostalgic hoot to see it all again thru Richardson's lenses.

I was really looking forward to Hateful Eight, tho, too, and found that a massive disappointment, so I guess I'll have to be prepared for that possibility as well.

The trailer seems to be restating most what we've been told already?  "Tarantino! Big stars! Vintage Hollywood! Charlie Manson & The Girls!"  It looks cool, and that's a bonus. 

Did anyone else think first viewing that Leo was channeling Kurt Russell there at the end...?  (I thought it was Kurt for a second...)   And, an awesome Bruce Lee!

Looks different, which is more than welcome when it comes to Tarantino.

Perhaps this trailer is presenting the film more to be more comedic/fun than it actually is? Will the upcoming trailers be darker and more sinister?
I was hoping to see QT break new ground emotionally/thematically with this one.

I foresee Brad Pitt being amazing in this.

Also, holy heck that Bruce Lee impression.

It didn't cure my depression, so I'm disappointed.

No, it looks great. You would think this was mostly about Pitt/Dicaprio, but remember the gigantic fucking cast in this? And the Inglourious Basterds teaser? It didn't show anything else besides Brad Pitt being cool and killing nazis. I'm sure Margot Robbie will have more things to do then to walk around and look pretty.

Still curious how the hell this will pan out.

My personal vibe was one of...concern?...especially following the LaBianca murder the following night.  I lived in the suburbs so felt somehow safer (even tho we were literally just over the hill in the Valley from both).  I didn't think I was in imminent danger--L.A. was such a gigantic fucking place you feel like the odds were pretty low you'd be next--but it certainly got your attention.   Both Mom and Dad were in the biz--but I don't remember overhearing any more-concerned-than-usual conversations from them about the murders.  A lot of shit had gone down by the late 60s--culturally, politically--at some point you just sorta surfed each new, holy-fuck news story as they came along.

Maybe Bruce Lee saves Sharon Tate...? A dopey projection that seems to be going around Twitter. Mostly at a jest, but still :doh:

I can’t imagine a scenario re: OUATIH in which fucking around with the established facts of this particular case could ever be pulled off successfully. With Hitler it’s one thing, blow him to bits yay!!!! but these were innocent people - she was 8 months pregnant for fucksake - how could it come off as anything but in poor taste? I don’t see it working. I certainly don’t believe Sharon’s sister would have approved the script if that were the case. And furthermore if the murders were ultimately prevented, the Family would have no historical/dramatic value or relevance.

I don’t buy it!
Title: Re: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
Post by: Robyn on March 20, 2019, 08:09:56 PM
No fucking way will that happen. That's ridiculous, right?

The holocaust was a mass tragedy. If you turn that into a revenge story, then fine. Everyone will think it's a blast. But this is like an intimate murder... how could you watch these pictures of Sharon Tate and be like "oh, I'm gonna turn this into some fucking revenge fantasy"? I mean, maybe he will do that,  but then he have to be tasteful about it. And i'm not sure how that is possible.
Title: Re: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Title: Re: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
Post by: eward on March 20, 2019, 08:38:34 PM
I have faith. My feeling is more the murder happens and then Leo and Brad low-key start investigating the crime themselves, stumbling across Spahn Ranch, the Family, etc... It was a stretch of three or four months post-Tate/Labianca before Susan Atkins started blabbing and Charlie and Co. were fingered for the murders. Lots of rogue investigating crews were sniffing around LA fall of 69. Roman Polanski hired people; Paul Tate conducted his own personal investigation; I feel like Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson funded something similar...perhaps Leo and Brad get caught up in a scenario like that? Brad, as seen in the trailer, fake-fights Bruce Lee with seeming success, and Bruce Lee coached/was friendly with Sharon Tate - perhaps he introduces the two of them?

It's fun to speculate.
Title: Re: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
Post by: Robyn on March 20, 2019, 08:56:09 PM
She's not pregnant in any of the videos/pictures of her, so I'm thinking it will happen towards the end?

All of his recent films has been about the violence, ending with big shoutouts/very violent climaxes. Hopefully this is a return to the hangout vibe we saw in Pulp Fiction/Death Proof/Jackie Brown. These films were violent for sure, but the violence wasn't in the foreground like in Django/Basterds/H8. I am thinking that it will mostly happen in the western series within the film/in the background.

Robert Richardson described it as a very different film with a lot of small set pieces in it, which makes me very excited bout it . Just give me some great cinematic dance scenes/parties/hangout scenes with some good Tarantino-esque music and I am happy lol.
Title: Re: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
Post by: eward on March 20, 2019, 09:29:32 PM
There was an on-set pic recently leaked that showed a scene being filmed depicting a very pregnant Sharon with Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger, and Voytek
Frykowski in tow, all dressed in what an aficionado like me recognizes as the clothes they died in (the men anyhow), presumably on their way to El Coyote for that famous last meal roughly 3 hours before the carnage.

Post by: WorldForgot on March 21, 2019, 01:32:55 AM
I dont think the murders have to be prevented for the summer of 69 to be revised into pulp revenge.
Also, it's so far from a "thin line!" This is the kinda cult culture dissection that gelz with Tarantino's 3-dimensional carnage. Instead of pigz or nazi's, it's something insidiously built into our own fav medium.
Title: Re: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
Post by: Drenk on March 21, 2019, 02:56:33 AM
All these glamorous shots of Tate are worrying, though. Will she have a storyline? I know that the world of cinema is intertwined with the murders, so I can imagine the characters being in a party with Tate, etc. But from the little we've seen it seems like she will be a character with her own separated storyline? That's complicated. Especially if she's isolated from the rest of the cast, being the woman that will be killed. If I had to write that story, I would not have cast an actress as known as Margo Robbie, and she would have been kind of there since it's Hollywood—but also she would have been kind of not there.

I'm very curious to see how he'll deal with it.
Title: Re: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
Post by: Sleepless on March 21, 2019, 11:55:41 AM
I think these theories are way off base. This is Tarantino's Inherent Vice-cum-Boogie Nights, I think it'll be more about celebrating a specific era and then wallowing in its demise. I really don't see this being a revenge movie. Maybe it's actually about his dealing with the collapse of the house of Weinstein and his own complicity in everything that went on there, with the Leo-Pitt relationship serving as some sort of substitute as we track them from their glory days to irrelevance as the movie business shifts. It was aways said that the Manson murders were just a part of the backdrop, so it makes sense that that's the painful event which triggers/culminates the massive shift in their lives as we hurtle into the third act. If this speculation is true, maybe (hopefully?) we don't even see the violence this time around, just it's aftermath.

Hmm, it's just that even as a backdrop in IV the cult plays a major role in its themes.  Here we have the family in play and Spahn ranch cast with notable names. The OUATIH you describe is closest to the movie I'd want to see QT illustrate, where Charlie doesn't seem too dissimilar from our co-stars, their narcissism and pretender crowns exposed. It's just a teaser, obvi, but Sharon Tate would, in this sort of dichotomy, represent the innocent idyll (veneer?) of Hollywood.

Hope this isn't too Reddit-y (or self-serving.  Wilder will let me know  :wink: ), but here's some extensive video from the Hollywood Blvd set from last July.  (Interested observers can spot me standing at the entrance of Larry Edmund's a couple of times: White T, cargo shorts, cap.)  (Quentin even ducked inside the store on a couple of occasions to get a closer look at some of the books the art dept had set up.)  We had a lot of fun for those 3 days.  I even learned (from overhearing a conversation between Tarantino and Richardson) what a "Dutch Angle" was.

Damn, seeing all the set dressing has got me ultra giddy. I'm just a sucker for that period, the art, the culture, the cars, etc. "Perfectly browned low tar cigarettes" on that bus .... Damn. I like how the cameraman just casually says, "There's Tarantino," and points him out.

I don't want to get my hopes up for this one too much and be let down, but I really doubt that'll happen. Tarantino hasn't made a movie I've disliked.
