ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD Producers Tease New Details About The Film
Aside from releasing a new mini-series edition of his 2015 Western thriller The Hateful Eight on Netflix, these are exciting times for fans of director Quentin Tarantino. His latest film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which will feature one of the most star-studded casts in recent memory, is hitting theaters this July and will act as a giant love letter to the late 1960’s with iconic individuals such as Sharon Tate (played by Margot Robbie) and Bruce Lee (Mike Moh) appearing in the narrative. With Tate in particular being involved, a lot of discussion and interest has circled around the film in how the infamous Manson Family murders would ultimately tie into the story.
In a new article from EW however, the film’s producer David Heyman made a point to de-emphasize the narrative role of the murders, referring to it as “one of the big misconceptions to clarify.”
“It’s about the loss of innocence that came about in 1969 with the Manson family,” producer Shannon McIntosh added. However if the film isn’t primarily about the Manson family, then what exactly is Tarantino looking to explore with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood?
“It’s the three classes of Hollywood,” Heyman explains. “There’s the high Hollywood of Sharon, the declining star of Rick [played by Leonardo DiCaprio], and there’s Cliff [Brad Pitt], who lives farther out and with more humble means.”
I have to admit, that is a very interesting concept for Tarantino to explore and one that I reckon that a number of friends of mine might end up relating to when it comes to Cliff’s character. The film industry is far more vast than the average movie goer realizes and the idea of someone bringing that hierarchy out to the public eye and exploring it more in-depth has me quite intrigued.
