Two of the greatest superstars of all time are going to work together in a new movie and fans can’t be more excited. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the latest film from Quentin Tarantino, is scheduled for release on July 26. Working as co-stars for the first time ever are the main movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, the two golden boys of Hollywood.
Although some might theorize that the A-listers might have difficulty sharing the screen time (movie stars are, after all, considered self-centered), that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Why don’t Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio work together more often?
Pitt and DiCaprio became popular around the same time, in the mid-1990s. They share some striking similarities in the sense that they both became famous in the first place for their handsome looks, and that their personal lives have become the subject of intense public investigation.
Both DiCaprio and Pitt have gained international fame for their acting skills – but only DiCaprio has won the coveted Oscar for the “Best Actor”.
Their paths have broke up in recent years, with Pitt stepping back from acting to concentrate on raising his family. He is also engaged in a custody battle with his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie.
DiCaprio, known as a ladies person with a preference for dating much younger models, on the other hand, has no children and therefore more time to focus on choosing and choosing different roles. He has also worked with climate change activists and although he has not had a major film role since 2015, he is still a vital force in the film industry.
Although it is strange that the two have never played together in a movie, although they made small cameo appearances in the 2015 movie The Audition, it makes sense to think how much it would cost for a movie producer to rent both superstars.
Although their exact salaries have never been revealed, Pitt has an estimated net worth of around $ 300 million and DiCaprio has a net worth of around $ 260 million. It would take some seriously deep pockets to get them both on board for the same movie.
What is their new movie about?
Fortunately, Quentin Tarantino has enough influence in Hollywood to convince studio executives to take control. When it was reported that he could have hired both Pitt and DiCaprio for his latest film, critics were shocked. The film, which was called Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, would be a return to form for both Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. Also starring Margot Robbie, the film is set in the late 1960s and focuses on the fading career of a television actor, played by DiCaprio, and his stunt double, played by Pitt.
With smaller roles played by actors such as Al Pacino, Timothy Dalton, Dakota Fanning and Kurt Russell, the film has built up a lot of excitement and the golden age of Hollywood would, according to him, display multiple storylines and views.
How do Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio get along?
Although Pitt and DiCaprio are movie stars of the highest level, it seems that they are just ordinary guys. During the tour through the press for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Pitt and DiCaprio squeezed while they cuddled and laughed and chatted with each other on the red carpet.
Their “bromance” gives the film even more attention and could lead to a huge opening weekend for the film directed by Tarantino. The two stars have also given each other many compliments in recent months, with Pitt claiming that DiCaprio is “the best” and that their shared experiences in the film industry have made it easy for them to work together.
It’s too early to predict what the consensus will be for the upcoming movie, but if early excitement is an indication, viewers will be watching en masse enough to see Pitt and DiCaprio’s screen pairing.
