QUENTIN TARANTINO’S ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD WILL PREMEIRE AT CANNES: Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and compete.

Margot Robbie will play Sharon Tate, Leonardo DiCaprio will play Rick Dalton, Brad Pitt is Cliff Booth, Dakota Fanning will play Squeaky Fromme, Al Pacino is set as Marvin Shwarz and Damian Lewis will play Steve McQueen in the film, which tells the story of Hollywood’s Golden Age and it’s intersection with the Charles Manson cult. Cannes also added Mektoub, My Love: Intermezzo by Abdellatif Kechiche to the lineup. This year’s festival marks the 25thanniversary of Tarantino’s iconic Pulp Fiction’s screening.

Filming begins in the U.K. this month.
TUCA & BERTIE’S CREATOR WANTS MEN TO HATE-WATCH SHOW: "I don't just want women who already agree with me to watch it. I don't want to just preach to the choir. I want men to get comfortable with the idea of women being funny and gross," Lisa Hanawalt tells The Hollywood Reporter. Hanawalt is ready for the backlash when her anthropomorphic cartoon—voiced by Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong—about two birds in their 30s lands on Netflix. Will you tune in?
