Sony brings forward release of Quentin Tarantino's all-star Manson family epic Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

The release for Quentin Tarantino's new thriller Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has been brought forward. 

The movie, which will star Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, was due out on August 9th in 2019, but has now been brought forward to July 26th in that same year. 

Production on the movie, which looks set to be based on the notorious Charles Manson murders of the late 1960's, is underway. 

The 1969 case which has inspired the film saw Charles Manson, a cult leader, order four of his followers to attack the inhabitants of a house in Los Angeles he believed owned by a record producer who rejected him. The attack left actress Sharon Tate dead along with four others.

The movie will see DiCaprio, Margot Robbie and Pitt take key roles. DiCaprio will play Rick Dalton, former star of a western TV series, while Pitt will be his longtime stunt double, Cliff Booth. Robbie will portray Sharon Tate. 

The film's supporting cast features Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning, Emile Hirsch, Burt Reynolds, Timothy Olyphant as well as Tarantino regulars Michael Madsen and Tim Roth.

Tarantino's new movie will be distributed by Sony Pictures after the demise of The Weinstein Company.
