Though it would seem the cast is already stuffed with people and production is long under way, Quentin Tarantino isn't finished announcing additions to his latest, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. The new group aboard are Lena Dunham, Maya Hawke, Austin Butler and Lorenza Izzo.

No details on characters were shared in Deadline's stort, but according to EW, Dunham will be Catherine “Gypsy” Share, a member of Charles Manson’s commune, Butler's playing Charles “Tex” Watson, Hawke's a fictional character named Flower Child, while Izzo will portray Francesca Capucci, a glamorous Italian movie star. They join the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie in a story set in 1969 Los Angeles. Hollywood follows various characters, but focuses on former Western TV series star Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt), men trying to find their way in a Hollywood neither man recognises as the Manson cult stalks and strikes fear into people. Dalton's connection with the Manson murders is his neighbour, Sharon Tate (Robbie).

The cast is a typically Tarantino-driven blend of old hands and newer faces, with the roster including Scoot McNairy, Timothy Olyphant, Luke Perry, Damian Lewis, Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is set for release on 26 July.
