Al Pacino has joined the cast of the '60s-set Los Angeles drama, EW has confirmed.

Quentin Tarantino " s always had an eye for casting, and the breadth of performers announced for his upcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood serve as a primer in his blend of fresh faces-Margot Robbie, Dakota Fanning, Luke Perry-with constant collaborators/grizzled relics of earlier eras like Tim Roth and Michael Madsen.

Variety is reporting that Quentin Tarantino's ode to 1960s cinema, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, has just locked down another fantastic talent.

As they try to make a name for themselves in the movie industry at the height of 1960s hippy Hollywood, they enlist the help of Sharon Tate - just as Charles Manson comes on the scene.

The film takes place in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, and is being pitched as a film similar to Pulp Fiction, one of Tarantino's most influential films.

There is no indication yet if Al Pacino's character Marvin Schwanz is based on an actual talent agent from that era, but it could be possible since numerous cast members will be playing real-life characters. He will play Marvin Shwarz, the agent of Leonardo DiCaprio's former Western TV star Rick Dalton. Who else can't wait to see him and DiCaprio tear it up alongside co-star Brad Pitt? Tarantino is writing and directing as well as producing. "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" is set for release on August 9, 2019 - 50 years and one day after Tate's murder. Things get complicated (how, we don't know), when the Manson Family arrives on the doorstep of Dalton's next door neighbor, Sharon Tate (Robbie).
