Quentin Tarantino to write Once Upon A Time In Hollywood novel
The book will expand upon Cliff and Rick’s stories and include additional portions that were not featured in the three-hour movie
Quentin Tarantino has announced that he will write a novel based on his Oscar-nominated screenplay for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (2019).
The book will delve into a different moment of history than what was depicted in the film, and provide an alternative story. The director previously did the same while releasing the screenplay book of his World War II film, Inglorius Basterds (2009).
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood follows TV actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo Decaprio) and his best friend and stuntman Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) as they try to remain relevant in the harsh film industry. Their paths get intertwined with Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) and other historical figures from the period like Charles Manson (Damon Herriman).
Notably, the film received 10 Oscar nominations and Brad Pitt won for Best Supporting Actor.
Screenrant reports that Tarantino will adapt his Oscar-nominated screenplay into a book which will expand upon Cliff and Rick’s stories and includes additional portions that were not featured in the three-hour movie.
