The film will mark DiCaprio’s first on-screen role since his Oscar-winning turn in The Revenant. The star – who previously worked with Tarantino on Django Unchained – is set to play an aging actor, presumably the one referred to in the brief plot description:
“Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, the film focuses on a male TV actor who’s had one hit series and his looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick—who’s also his stunt double—is looking for the same thing. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate and four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story.
