Quentin Tarantino & Brad Pitt Reunited for 'Hollywood' After This Big Coincidence!

Quentin Tarantino & Brad Pitt Reunited for 'Hollywood' After This Big Coincidence!

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood hits theaters at the end of this month, and director Quentin Tarantino just told a story that showed how he and star Brad Pitt were on the same page about his character Cliff Booth.

It all started when Quentin invited Brad over to his house to discuss the character before Brad had signed on to do the film. Brad did some character work and decided he wanted to watch the film Billy Jack, a 1971 drama from Tom Laughlin, to dig further into Cliff Booth.

Funnily enough, Quentin said, he wanted to watch the exact same film with Brad to delve deeper into the role!

“I go, ‘Brad, I have a 35mm print of ‘Billy Jack,’ threaded up on the projector, waiting for you to get here,’” Quentin said on the Pure Cinema Podcast. “He couldn’t believe that we both were thinking of ‘Billy Jack’ — and more Tom Laughlin than Billy JackBilly Jack always has a little preamble… a folksy story that he tells before he fucks you up, and [Cliff] kinda has his own little folksy story.”

Brad Pitt and Quentin Tarantino previously worked together on 2009′s Inglorious Bastards.
