Burt Reynolds Was Weeks Away From Filming His ‘Comeback’ Role

Published

on

During the 1970s, Burt Reynolds was Hollywood’s highest paid actor. Known for his role in the 1977 film, Smokey and the Bandit, Reynolds died unexpectedly on Sept. 6. But before his death, the legendary actor was cast to star in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Unfortunately, he will never appear in the film.

He Could Do It All

Reynolds was one of those actors who could do it all: perform his own stunts, play romantic leads, and he knew how to get behind the wheel. He famously rejected the roles of James Bond and Han Solo—instead choosing roles that just “fit.”

The actor died on Sept. 6 at the age of 82 from cardiac arrest, but his legacy will always live on.

Making A Comeback

It had been a while since Reynolds was a Hollywood heartthrob. That’s why he had plans for making a long-awaited comeback in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The film, documenting the infamous Charles Manson murders, was set to begin production in a matter of weeks after Reynold’s untimely death.

According to his niece, Nancy Lee Hess, “My uncle was looking forward to working with Quentin Tarantino, and the amazing cast that was assembled.”

One Of Many Icons  

Tarantino is famous for casting Hollywood icons in his films, with Reynolds being included on the list. The actor was cast to play George Spahn, the owner of the ranch where Manson and his followers lived during the infamous Manson Family murders.

Reynolds was set to co-star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, Margot Robbie, and others.
