At Sony Pictures" CinemaCon presentation on Monday night, Tarantino said Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, the film's two leading men, will be "the most exciting dynamic star duo since Paul Newman and Robert Redford.' Pitt wasn't on hand in Las Vegas, but DiCaprio flanked Tarantino on the Caesars Palace stage, telling the audience of theater owners that the film boasts "one of the most incredible screenplays [the writer-director] has ever written.' "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" is shrouded in mystery, but Tarantino has said that it takes place in 1969".

In an exciting but entirely predictable humblebrag, Sony Pictures lured their new creative partner Quentin Tarantino to CinemaCon 2018, where the movie-obsessed director charmed thousands of American exhibitors.

Quentin Tarantino is soon returning with Brad Pitt in an upcoming film based on the infamous Manson murders that shocked Hollywood in 1960s. "Street by street, block by block, we'll transform Los Angeles into the Hollywood of 1969". "It's Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood", said Tarantino.

'I think [Tarantino] transports us into a different era, ' the Django Unchained actor said.

"I'm a huge fan of "Singin" in the Rain' - movies about Hollywood". As an LA native, having read the script, it's one of the most fantastic screenplays.

True that - we can't wait to see it, fellas.

Tarantino, who is writing and directing, describes the project as "a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood" and he has provided a few more details about what's in store.

DiCaprio couldn't reveal much on the storyline, but noted that not a single frame had been filmed at this time. Margot Robbie is said to be in talks to appear as Tate.

The conversation ended with a rousing thank you from Tarantino to the theater owners for keeping the cinematic experience where it belongs -in their theater. The film is now titled Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
