Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's director and producer Quentin Tarantino and Brad Pitt worked together for the very first time in the year 2009 in the film, Inglourious Basterds. But that film wasn't really the reason behind this duo coming together for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Tarantino was hoping to cast Pitt to essay the role of stuntman called Cliff Booth. The director invited Brad Pitt to his home for a discussion about the character. It was on this occasion that a coincidence occurred when Brad Pitt understood Cliff Booth's character without getting any help from the director.

Quentin Tarantino during his interaction with Pure Cinema Podcast, said that Brad Pitt came to his house to talk about Cliff Booth's character and sat for a screening of Tom Laughlin’s 1971 action drama Billy Jack. Brad Pitt brought with him his personal DVD copy of that film. This film has Laughlin in the lead role of a Vietnam war hero who is also a martial arts expert. It so happened that Brad Pitt didn’t have to bring over his DVD copy as Billy Jack was just that film which Tarantino wanted Pitt to see.

Brad Pitt getting his Billy Jack DVD when Tarantino had already arranged for a 35mm print of the 1971 put up in his projector only meant that Brad Pitt understood the role in the same way as Tarantino did. Brad Pitt essays the role of Cliff opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie. The critics have spoken very well about this film after its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
