Currently in Las Vegas, there is a Comic-Con like convention going on. It doesn't get as much hype as the big convention in San Diego, and not nearly as many cosplayers as it looks. Hell, I can't even tell you how long this has been happening. But there has been some seemingly cool stuff popping up on the internet surrounding this convention. This convention is CinemaCon 2018.
There are a whole bunch of things I could write and discuss right now, but there is one thing in particular that has caught my eye. I always get giddy when there is a new Quentin Tarantino movie in production. He's planning a new film for 2019 called "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood," such a Tarantino title. If you've read anything about the movie, you know its set in Hollywood and that the Charles Manson murders will be the backdrop of the movie. Lots of people seem to think that Tarantino is trying glorify the serial killer, which couldn't be further from the truth. It's simply a backdrop.
Tarantino has already cast Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, which in the video below Tarantino compares to Robert Redford and Paul Newman. DiCaprio was set to play Col. Hans Landa in "Inglorious Basterds" which eventually went to Christoph Waltz, so Pitt and DiCaprio came close that time to co-starring but not close enough. Pitt and DiCaprio will play a TV actor and his stunt double (Don't know which one will play who) who are trying to get back into the acting business, and will go on some type of adventure right around the Charles Manson murders. Seems as intriguing as anything Tarantino has ever come up with, and I am highly curious to see what he does with this premise.
Margot Robbie is confirmed to play Sharon Tate, who was a victim of Manson's. Zoe Bell is showing up in casting, but no idea who she'll play. There are also rumors that Tarantino is in talks with Tom Cruise about a potential role too. So again, Tarantino knows how to get a cast together, and I can't wait to see what he does.
