Sharon Tate was a real woman, of course, and next year marks the 50th anniversary of her murder at the hands of the Manson Family. The "Valley of the Dolls" actress was married to Roman Polanski at the time, and was heavily pregnant with their son. She was 26.

The upcoming movie won't heavily focus on Sharon Tate's murder, that's just the backdrop of the story, but it was going to be released on the exact 50th anniversary of Tate's death -- August 9, 2019. Sony changed that to July 26, 2019.
The highly anticipated film is set in Los Angeles in 1969, following former star of a Western TV series Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio); his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt); and Rick's very famous next-door neighbor, Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie).

Quentin Tarantino described this movie as "probably the closest to 'Pulp Fiction' that I have done."
"Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" is currently scheduled to arrive in theaters July 26, 2019.
