Tarantino's ninth film is shaping up nicely, with Lewis, Fanning and Luke Perry joining this week.
Quentin Tarantino’s films are legendary for many reasons, not least because of his consistent ability to attract amazingly star-studded casts for his epics. However, his upcoming project Once Upon A Time In Hollywood could turn out to feature his most impressive cast yet, with Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning and Luke Perry announced as the newest additions!
Deadline reported on Wednesday night (June 6th) that the three huge stars will be joining the likes of Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie on the new film.
Former ‘Homeland’ star Lewis, 47, is set to play the iconic actor Steve McQueen, while Fanning has been cast as Squeaky Fromme, a Manson cult follower who infamously attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford. Perry is going to play the unknown character Scotty Lancer.

The Silent Storm which is set in the idyllic moorlands of the Scottish Islands, post WWII, holds a dark secret that is tearing the community apart. The exceedingly strict minister of the community is called Balor and he'll got to extreme lengths to see his way of life, a traditional way of life, preserved. However due to his relentless actions, the relationship with his withdrawn wife, Aislin, is suffering. They have a troubled relationship together and they are reaching breaking point because Aislin feels more at one with nature and a free spirt than an individual in the community.
In the chaos of the violent argument that erupts between them a 17 year old male delinquent arrives to live with them as a last ditched attempt at rehabilitation. Aislin is drawn to his nature and the fact that he too is an outsider brings comfort to her. As their relationship deepens, the minister finds himself becoming more and more jealous until the situation erupts into a fight. If Aislin needed a saviour, perhaps Fionn's arrival will be the release she needs.
The film directed by Corinna McFarlane deals with the theme romance and offers a form of escapism for the character of Aislin to live her life beyond the remote Scottish Island.
Recent reports had suggested that Craig has reversed his position on playing 007, signing up for two more films.
With the release of the highly-anticipated Spectre now imminent, Daniel Craig seems to have changed his tune about the prospects of continuing to be James Bond after recently landing himself in hot water after saying rather “slash his wrists” than play 007 again.
That is to say, he now says he “doesn’t really care” about who will take over as the British spy when he eventually finishes. In the last fortnight, rumours have maintained that Craig has reversed his position and signed up for two more Bond films.
However, when interviewed by The Sun, the 47 year old actor refused to be drawn on what decision he had made. “I have the right to change my mind any time I want to, and sometimes I say things like I did two days after finishing shooting for eight months. I said what was on my mind. That’s the way I’ve always spoken,” he said matter-of-factly.
