Whether you're a fan of his highly-stylized films or not, director Quentin Tarantino certainly knows how to create buzz. He's done so with his upcoming movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Set in the summer of the Manson murders, the film will follow two washed-up stars who try to make it in a Hollywood they no longer recognize. And now, Tarantino has found his Charles Manson: Australian actor Damon Herriman has been cast as the cult leader, whose "family" carried out the murder of pregnant actress Sharon Tate, and four others, in 1969.
The horrific crime, however, won't be the main focus of the film: As the title suggests, it will be very much about Hollywood. Tarantino has not only written a film about actors, he's also employed a lot of them. The star-studded cast includes everyone from '90s heartthrobs to Oscar nominees to HBO favorites.
Basically, you're going to spend the entirety of this moving going "Oooh, he's in this? I know that guy!" Or, alternatively, you can read our handy guide to Tarantino's upcoming film endeavor and be prepared to see some of your favorite faces on screen. Read ahead to check it out.
