Famous and renowned stuntman actor Brad Pitt played the role of Cliff Booth in the film.
Tarantino acclaims “Cliff is a real enigma”
While talking about the announcement of the novel Tarantino stated “In the movie, Cliff is a real enigma. You’re kind of like, ‘What this guy’s deal?’.
Furthermore, he added to his statement while talking about the character Cliff, “There are these isolated chapters that tell you, like, this whole chapter will be about Cliff’s past. It goes back in time to tell you about Cliff at this point in time. And then you go further on with the normal run of the story and there’s another chapter that goes back in time and tells you about Cliff’s past. And every isolated chapter that’s just about Cliff’s past is like a weird little pulp novel unto itself starring Cliff.”
Once upon a time in Hollywood received 10 nominations in the Oscar awards. But the film ended receiving 2 Oscar awards.
Bradd Pitt received Oscars for his supporting role in the movie. His role got highly acclaimed by the critiques worldwide. As stated by the director novel will emphasize more on the previous life of the Cliff. Some mature shots of the boat travel of Cliff and his wife will be also lighted in the novel.
Tarantino’s massive hard work for the novel
Tarantino has done massive work for the novel. He started the novel from its basics. While ending up his statement in the announcement of the novel he deliberately added “It’s not just me taking the screenplay and then breaking it down in a novelistic form. I retold the story as a novel”.
Tarantino explains that while writing the novel he dived deeper into the characters. He has engaged and gathered more aspects related to various characters of the movie. Overall he describes the novel as an Unwieldy version of the movie.
He acclaimed to rethink the entire story of the novel. He has also added some leftover scenes that were not added in the film. By doing extreme research he has tried to make the novel as popular as the movie.
If we look at the stats it suggests that first novels are written and then movies are made on the stories taken from those novels. But this time there is something different as the movie is already made earlier and now a novel based on the movie will be releasing. The novel will be enough to erase all the remaining dilemmas of the movie that are struck in the head of fans.
