The magazine wrote that Tarantino is also in talks with Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, and Michael Madsen for small or cameo roles in the movie as well.

Burt Reynolds is in talks to join Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

"Tarantino is one of my bucket-list directors", she told IndieWire Tuesday afternoon at Hollywood's Escape Hotel, while promoting her May 11 release "Terminal".

In any event, we'll be keeping our ear to the ground for further updates as Once Upon a Time in Hollywood heads into production, on its way to an already-announced release date of August 19th, 2019.

Roman Polanski, and the Pregnant Sharon Tate were murdered brutally in their Cielo Drive home, so this is going to be a dark film.

Robbie was also asked about Tarantino retiring after his 10th film, which would be the one after Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

The company is also awaiting regulatory approval of its proposed $52 billion all-stock bid for Fox television and film assets. Front Row Advisors LLC acquired a new stake in shares of Walt Disney during the fourth quarter worth approximately $122,000.

Even as recently as Sony's CinemaCon presentation, which brought DiCaprio and Tarantino on stage, the studio stopped short of confirming Robbie's participation. The famed auteur's next project, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, uses the infamous Manson murders of 1969 as the backdrop to a story set in - you guessed it - Hollywood, California.

It will also be the 82-year old actor's first major film in quite some time, as most would agree the one-time Hollywood golden boy hasn't had a great role since 1997's Boogie Nights.

Following the casting of DiCaprio (in January) and Pitt (in February), Tarantino is reportedly in talks to add several veteran stars - and some former collaborators - to the cast.

In the film, DiCaprio will play the role of aging actor Rick Dalton on what Deadline describes as a "Pulp Fiction-esque movie set" during the summer of 1969.

It's unknown who Roth, Russell and Madsen- all three cast members in Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight" - will play. The Titanticactor's casting as an older actor carries a bit of irony.

The 1994 star-studded cult classic won a best screenplay Academy Award for Tarantino and acting Oscar nominations for Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, and John Travolta. The actor starred in the late 1960s TV series Hawk and guest starred on shows like Gentle Ben and The F.B.I. before he became a major box office draw in the 1970s' films Deliverance, The Longest Yard and Smokey and the Bandit.
