According to the flick's synopsis, the story takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood and sees the two characters struggle to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore.

The movie will also partly focus on the murder of actress Sharon Tate and friends by the Manson Family in the 1960s.

The film will be Tarantino's ninth motion picture.

The cast for the film is huge, as it also includes Burt Reynolds, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Damian Lewis and Dakota Fanning.

The film will be released on August 9, 2019, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Hollywood murders.
