Veteran director Quentin Tarantino is no stranger to large, ensemble casts. Films such as Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight, and Pulp Fiction all feature star studded lineups, and according to a pair of new casting reports, it doesn’t seem that Tarantino will be changing up his style anytime soon.
Just recently, Deadline reported that Al Pacino would be joining Tarantino’s latest effort, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Pacino boasts a pretty legendary resume, having starred in films like Scarface and the Godfather trilogy. Pacino will undoubtably bring a strong level of gravitas to whatever role he ends up playing, and Tarantino’s sure to put him to good use.
Meanwhile, Slashfilm is reporting that Westworld star James Marsden has also signed on to join the cast. With his experience working in the original X-Men trilogy and sharing the screen with stars like Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and Halle Berry, Marsden is well suited for a production full of well known actors, and will likely have no problem holding his own.
The film marks the first time either of the actors will work with Tarantino, and will also star Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, and Kurt Russell.
