Margot Robbie arrives at the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) at the Royal Albert Hall in London, great Britain, February 18, 2018.
Deadline broke last July 11 that Quentin Tarantino had a meeting with Margot Robbie and asked her to play Sharon Tate in his next film. She now has the offer and negotiations are underway to make it a reality. Robbie, who is coming off her Oscar-nominated turn in the title role of “I, Tonya,” will join Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘ Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”
As Tarantino remains a killer ensemble, Sony Pictures has the film dated for an Aug. 9, 2019, release worldwide. The film is a “Pulp Fiction”-like rug set in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippie Hollywood, around the time of the murder of Tate and several others in a killing spree ordered by Charles Manson.
The two other main characters are Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), the former star of a Western TV series, and his old stunt double, Cliff Booth (Pitt). Both struggling to make it in Hollywood that they no longer recognized. In the film, Tate is Rick’s very famous neighbor.
Robbie is repped by CAA, Management 360, Aran Michael Management and Jackoway Tyerman.
