It seems like Quentin Tarantino & Co. are given them a run for their money, with sort of their cool kids version of an Oscar-winning, star-studded assemble, as Deadline exclusively broke yesterday that Margot Robbie joins Tarantino in his upcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, about the Manson murders.

Robbie was already rumoured to be appearing in the film, but now Deadline has reported: "She now has the offer and negotiations are underway to make it a reality". And stay tuned for updates.

There had been talks that the film would link to the murder of Sharon Tate by the Manson family. DiCaprio will play Rick Dalton, an ageing a western TV star, and Pitt will portray his longtime stunt double, Cliff Booth. The two happen to live next door to Tate, and their Hollywood struggle will somehow get caught up in the Manson murders. Both are trying to make it in Hollywood.

Tarantino has issued a statement declaring that "I've been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was seven years old".

Swindon's Toys R Us store to shut, administrators announce
The administrators said that Toys R Us had outstanding liabilities of around £300m, including a £70-90m pension fund shortfall. The British arm of the toy seller went into administration, which is similar to a bankruptcy, in February.

With Robbie a near lock to join Pitt and DiCaprio, the next major bit of casting will be the actor selected to play controversial filmmaker Roman Polanski.

As Tarantino continues to set a killer ensemble, Sony Pictures has dated the film for an August 9, 2019, release worldwide.

It's going to be called Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, and will be set in Los Angeles in 1969.

In November, Tarantino chose Sony as the distributor for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood".
