Lena Dunham has joined the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s new movie

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood already stars Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, and more

It seems like everyone is involved in Tarantino’s upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The late-60s Los Angeles set film stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio as a struggling actor and his stunt double as they push to make it in the film industry. The murder of Sharon Tate, Valley of the Dolls actress, model, and wife of director Roman Polanski, is a plotline that appears, with Tate played by Margot Robbie. Dakota Fanning, James Marsden, Luke Perry, Al Pacino, and Damian Lewis are also involved.

Now, according to the Hollywood Reporter, the cast roster has added Lena Dunham. It’s the Girls creator’s first ever role in a major studio film. Girls ended last year, and she recently had a small part as radical feminist and almost Warhol-assassin Valerie Solanas in American Horror Story: Cult

Maya Hawke is also set to make an appearance, according to Vulture. Hawke is the daughter of Uma Thurman, who not that long ago shared her story of “almost being actually killed on the set of Kill Bill” because of Tarantino’s actions.

A recent image of Margot Robbie was shared in full costume as her character Sharon Tate, who was murdered by the notorious Manson family – Tate’s sister has disavowed previous depictions of her late sister on screen as “tacky”. DiCaprio and Pitt shared an image of themselves in costume in set back in June.

Once Upon a Time In Hollywood will debut July 26 2019, close to the 50th anniversary of Tate’s murder.
