There’s undoubtedly going to be massive anticipation when the subject of a film has Leonardo Di Caprio in it’s cast. And moreover, when the movie is being helmed by directorial specialist- Quentin Tarantino. The last when two of Hollywood’s grizzlies came together on the big screen- there were box office fireworks. We saw the boundless happiness in the spectre of unchaining of Django Unchained. What about now?
If reports are to be believed then Leonardo Di Caprio is teaming up once again with arguably Hollywood’s most respected and adulated fiery film director- Quentin Tarantino. And interestingly, the title of their collaboration this time around has none other than Hollywood itself at the backdrop of the story.
Apparently the title of the new film by Leonardo Di Caprio is “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”, and in a recent film gathering the duo reprised their familiar ensemble and made a mention of something implicit to their next work (obviously, in the making).

The most interesting collaboration of the new Tarantino flick, other than bringing Di Caprio in with Quentin is of course the actor’s pairing with another legendary name in the film industry: Brad Pitt. You read it right! For the first time ever shall one see the highly anticipated pairing of a true colossal of Hollywood- Brad Pitt with inarguably, one of the most famous actors and youth heroes of all time- Leonardo Di Caprio. What was also revealed by Quentin Tarantino was that the filming of the movie takes place in Los Angeles and shall be shot extensively during the summers of this year.
There’s hardly a doubt about the maverick genius of Tarantino, something whose magical spell Leonardo Di Caprio has already experienced when the two got together to film Django Unchained. So it was hardly surprising that Di Caprio had this to say on one of the famous movie-makers of all time, “I am very excited to work with Brad Pitt in this film and I think Tarantino transports us to a different era.” There’s hardly anyone- it ought to be confessed- who may not be looking forward to such a mouth-watering prospect. What can the holy trinity of Leonardo Di Caprio, Quentin Tarantino and, Brad Pitt bring to the fore? Box-office fireworks amongst any other thing, isn’t it?
