Actors Dakota Fanning, Damian Lewis and Luke Perry are set to star alongside Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Sharon Tate drama titled Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Fanning will play the role of Squeaky Fromme, Lewis will portray Steve McQueen and Perry will play Scott Lancer in the movie set in Los Angeles in 1969, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood focuses on a washed-up actor (Pitt) from a Western TV series and his stunt double (DiCaprio) struggling to survive at the end of the 1960s. Coincidentally, Pitt’s character, Rick Dalton, lives right next door to Tate, the starlet who was one of the victims in the Charles Manson murders.

The film will also feature Emile Hirsch as Jay Sebring, Clifton Collins as Ernesto The Mexican Vaquero, Keith Jefferson as Land Pirate Keith and Nicholas Hammond as director Sam Wanamaker.

The movie earlier cast Margot Robbie, Burt Reynolds, Timothy Olyphant, Kurt Russell, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth in supporting roles.

Fanning is also set to take on her first-time role as producer for Kirsten Dunst’s adaptation of The Bell Jar, in which Fanning will also star. She will also appear in Ocean’s 8.
