Details On DiCaprio’s New Tarantino Film Role

A new report has offered more details regarding Leonardo DiCaprio’s character in Quentin Tarantino’s much talked about next directorial effort which is set in the 1960s and is being produced by Sony Pictures.

The currently untitled film has DiCaprio in the lead and until now all we knew is he’d be playing a male TV actor who has had one hit series and his looking for a way to get into the film business. Now Deadline explains more about his role and the overall film:

“What he plays, more specifically, is an actor who had his own Western show, Bounty Law, that ran on the air from 1958 to 1963. His attempt to transition to movies didn’t work out and in 1969 – the film is set at the height of hippy Hollywood movement – he’s guesting on other people’s shows while contemplating going to Italy which has become a hotbed for low-budget Westerns.”

The outlet adds the film is a Pulp Fiction-esque tapestry of Los Angeles during the summer of the Manson murders and casting is about to ramp up. Margot Robbie, Tom Cruise and Al Pacino have all been rumored for the project.
