Variety is reporting that Quentin Tarantino's ode to 1960s cinema, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, has just locked down another wonderful talent.

The legendary actor, 78, known for his roles in the Godfather and Scent of a Woman, which bagged him an Oscar, will play Marvin Shwarz, Leo's character's agent in the film. Dicaprio stars as Rick Dalton, a former Western TV star struggling to stay relevant and Pitt stars as his trusty longtime stuntman Cliff Booth.

What makes this cast quite interesting, despite being absolutely rammed-to-the-brim with big names, is that this will be the first film in which both Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt star.

It's previously been confirmed that Tarantino has asked Ennio Morricone to compose music for the film, which is also very good news.

Pacino recently drew strong reviews for his portrayal of Penn State coach Joe Paterno, and will next appear in Martin Scorsese's The Irishman.

Pacino is joins an ever growing cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio (Django Unchained), Brad Pitt (Inglorious Basterds), Margot Robbie (I, Tonya), Burt Reynolds (Smokey and the Bandit), Timothy Olyphant (Santa Clarita Diet), Michael Madsen and Tim Roth (The Hateful Eight). Robbie, meanwhile, will play Sharon Tate, who just so happens to be Rick's next door neighbour.

The movie will be set in Los Angeles in 1969, and will be released on August 9, 2019, pegged to the 50th anniversary of the day the Manson family murdered two members of the LaBianca family, which was also the day after the Manson family killed Sharon Tate, Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger and Wojciech Frysowski.
