Leonardo DiCaprio Officially Cast in New Quentin Tarantino Movie

Leonardo DiCaprio has said yes to starring in Quentin Tarantino's new movie, which will reteam the actor and director from 2012's Django Unchained.

The pair previously worked together on the phenomenally popular, The Wolf of Wall Street.

If the rumors are anything to go by, then this movie might not just have DiCaprio, but an star-studded ensemble.

As to what DiCaprio is doing in the pic, that's even more speculative.

DiCaprio, an Oscar victor in 2016 for "The Revenant", will play an aging actor in the untitled film. Either way, we're definitely getting a movie with DiCaprio in a major role next year, which is cause for celebration.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed in July of previous year that Tarantino was in the final stages of completing the script, and that one of the film's arcs will focus on Sharon Tate, then an actress and the wife of director Roman Polanski. Although Tarantino's work hasn't always been loved by The Academy, he has already won two Oscars to date for his screenwriting. So it is with news Friday afternoon that DiCaprio has officially committed to star in Tarantino's next film, which has been set-up at Sony Pictures with a 2019 release date already scheduled.

According to Deadline, Tarantino wants Margot Robbie to play Tate.

Reports suggest the movie will follow an ageing actor (DiCaprio) in 1969 Los Angeles and his life will cross paths with the murders. While the role is said to be "meaty", nearly no specific details have been released about the plot or the character. A deal for Tom Cruise to co-star is also being pursued, a part that was reportedly passed on by Brad Pitt.

Are you looking forward to Tarantino and DiCaprio teaming up again?
