'Because he's got his own unique, specific style, and when you see a Quentin Tarantino movie, you know it'.
DiCaprio will play "an aging actor" evidently, though whether this is a fictional character created specifically for the story or an actual aging actor from 1969 is unknown.
The pair previously worked together on the phenomenally popular, The Wolf of Wall Street.
The movie opens August 9, 2019 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Tate's murder.
The upcoming film, Tarantino's ninth, is set to release on August 9, 2019, Deadline reported Friday, exactly 50 years after members of the Manson Family cult murdered actress Sharon Tate and four other guests at her house. Robbie is reportedly offered to play the role of Sharon Tate. The murders took place in the home of actress Sharon Tate, the wife of director Roman Polanski, who was killed when she's eight months pregnant, alongside four others. It will be DiCaprio's first major role since winning an Oscar for The Revenant (holy shit, remember The Revenant?), and his second collaboration with Tarantino, following Django Unchained.
Sony Pictures, part of Sony Corp, did not return a request for comment on the casting.
