Once Upon a Time in Hollywood...

• https://www.independent.co.uk, Christopher Hooton

Anticipation couldn't really be higher for Quentin Tarantino's (possibly penultimate) new film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which only gets more exciting the more we learn about it.

Set against the counterculture explosion in LA in 1969, the film will star Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt (acting together for the first time), reportedly as a TV cowboy actor and his long-serving stunt double respectively.

At a Sony panel at CinemaCon this week, Tarantino described them as "the most exciting star dynamic duo since Robert Redford and Paul Newman", and the bold claims didn't stop there.

DiCaprio said that having read the script he believes it is one of the director's best, while Sony chairman Tom Rothman declared it the best screenplay he had read in 30+ years in the business.

Fans of old school Tarantino also have cause for celebration, with the filmmaker teasing that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is "probably the closest [film] to Pulp Fiction that I've ever done".
