Margot Robbie is going back in time for Quentin Tarantino’s new movie.
Robbie posted a photo to Instagram Monday of herself as Sharon Tate, the actress and wife of director Roman Polanski, who was murdered in 1969 by the Manson Family.
Tarantino’s movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” takes place in 1969 Los Angeles. Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt lead the film as actor Rick Dalton and his stunt double, Cliff Booth, respectively, as they struggle to succeed in Hollywood. Tate’s murder plays a significant role in the film.
Robbie told Indiewire in April, when she was confirmed for the role, that Tarantino is one of her “bucket-list directors.”
“As long as I can remember, I’ve been a huge Tarantino fan,” she said.
“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” comes to theaters July 26, 2019.
