Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is really coming together, and now the expected has been confirmed – Margot Robbie will be playing Manson family murder victim Sharon Tate.

“Tarantino is one of my bucket-list directors. As long as I can remember, I’ve been a huge Tarantino fan,” Robbie has told IndieWire. “Beyond anything, I’ve just always wanted to see him work. And I want to see how he runs a set, and how he directs people, and what the vibe is onset, and what’s in the script, and then what happens on the day. I’m just fascinated by all of it, fascinated. So it’s going to be a crazy experience to witness it firsthand. It’s something I’ve always dreamed of doing.”

She’ll be joining an ever-expanding and exciting cast. With Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt confirmed, Tarantino is reportedly chatting with old mates Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell and Zoë Bell – as well as the legendary Burt Reynolds – about taking on roles for the 1960s-set movie that the director has described as being a Pulp Fiction-like multi-story tale.

Tarantino summed the movie’s plot up like this a while back: “It’s a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognise anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor… Sharon Tate.”

Despite only being in pre-production, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has been given an August 8, 2019 release date.
