The 405 has reported extensively on Quentin Tarantino's latest – and first post-Harvey Weinstein – project, a Charles Manson-inspired story called Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, starring Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio.

The film takes place in 1969 – the height of "hippie Hollywood" – with Pitt and DiCaprio playing two movie industry figures burnt out and trying to recover old stardom.

We can now say that Margot Robbie – fresh off her Oscars run in I, Tonya – has officially been offered the part of slain actress Sharon Tate with negotiations underway to make the casting choice happen.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is set for August 9, 2019 theatrical release – timed to 50 years from the Tate / LaBianca Murders. Stay with The 405 for more on this as we hear it.
