On Monday night, CinemaCon attendees were surprised when Leonardo DiCaprio and Quentin Tarantino took to the stage in Las Vegas, teasing their upcoming collaboration, without giving away too many plot details.

"Sony and myself will be coming to the theaters with the most exciting star dynamic since Paul Newman and Robert Redford," Tarantino said of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"It's very hush-hush and top secret. But I can tell you that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood takes place in 1969, at the height of the counterculture hippie revolution and the height of new Hollywood." This summer, Tarantino added, he and his team will transform the city of Los Angeles "block by block" into 1969 Hollywood.

Tarantino, who's set to star alongside Brad Pitt, said Tarantino's script is "one of the most amazing" he's had the privilege to read.

"It's hard to speak about a film that we haven't done yet, but I'm incredibly excited to work with Brad Pitt, and I think he's going to transport us," DiCaprio said. "I'm a huge fan of Singin' in the Rain, movies about Hollywood."

Although it wasn't apparently mentioned by Tarantino and DiCaprio at CinemaCon, the upcoming film-described by Tarantino as "probably the closest to Pulp Fiction that I've done"-is expected to tackle the appropriately timed Charles Manson topic. Tarantino announced Brad Pitt's casting back in February, in that statement, he revealed that DiCaprio's character neighbour is none other than Manson Family victim, Sharon Tate.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will mark the first Tarantino project since the Weinstein scandal broke, and alsp frequent Tarantino collaborator Uma Thurman's revealing New York Times interview. In the piece, Thurman recounted a distressing Kill Bill stunt sequence. Tarantino, who handed over footage of the shoot to be included in the New York Times article, later referred to the crash in question as "one of the biggest regrets of my life"
