Al Pacino boards Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’

The film takes place during the height of hippy Hollywood.

There is no indication yet if Al Pacino's character Marvin Schwanz is based on an actual talent agent from that era, but it could be possible since numerous cast members will be playing real-life characters.

"Once Upon a Time in Hollywood", which will also star Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Burt Reynolds, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Timothy Olyphant, focuses on a washed-up actor (Pitt) from a Western TV series and his stunt double (DiCaprio) struggling to survive at the end of the 1960s.

Sebring was a Hollywood hairstylist to the stars, whose clients included Steve McQueen, Frank Sinatra, Kirk Douglas, and Jim Morrison, and had a relationship with Sharon Tate in the mid-60s.

Pacino most recently starred in HBO's film Paterno, and he just wrapped Martin Scorsese's long-gestating crime drama The Irishman.

Damon would then, of course, subsequently go on to work with Leonardo DiCaprio in The Departed and Brad Pitt in the Ocean's Eleven trilogy as well as cameo together in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.

Deadline reports that eight actors have joined the cast of Quentin Tarantino's new film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, including Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Clifton Collins Jr, Keith Jefferson and Nicholas Hammond. Things get complicated (how, we don't know), when the Manson Family arrives on the doorstep of Dalton's next door neighbor, Sharon Tate (Robbie).

And with a budget of $100,000,000 under their belts - you know this is going to be good. Producers for the pic include Tarantino, David Heyman, Shannon McIntosh and release is set for August 9, 2019.
