Quentin Tarantino’s forthcoming film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is already stacked with stars. But it looks like the famed director just booked another big name. The legendary Al Pacino has been tapped to star in the historical drama, which is set to premiere in 2019.

The Dramatic Plot

The film is set in 1969 Los Angeles, with the story focusing on characters played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt. Leonardo stars as Rick Dalton, whose career as a Western TV star is fading fast. Brad plays his longtime stuntman and friend Cliff Booth.

The two struggle to stay relevant in a changing, psychedelic Hollywood. However, Rick lives next door to a rising star: Sharon Tate (played by Margot Robbie) which could open the door for new opportunities…

Pacino’s Role

Screen legend Al Pacino is set to play Marvin Shwarz, who serves as the fictitious Hollywood agent for Leonardo’s character. This new role comes after Pacino’s unforgettable performance as Penn State coach Joe Paterno in HBO Films’ Paterno.

Consequence of Sound

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood will also be the first collaboration between Pacino and Tarantino. With these two legends together, this movie is already a must see. However, there are even more incredible actors rounding out the cast.

Star-Studded Cast
