Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Book Is Getting A Hardcover Edition With New Cover Art

After the release of his successful elegiac Tinseltown film "Once Upon A Time in Hollywood," Quentin Tarantino has kept himself busy hawking copies of its novelization, also penned by him. A whirlwind story of the end of an era, the book answers some questions and raises new-to-us scenes that, for one reason or another, didn't make it into the final cut on the big screen. 

The latest news to come down brings a new hardcover edition of the story from HarperCollins, available in November 2021. It features nifty cover art dropped in an Entertainment Weekly exclusive which you can check out below.

Party Like It's 1969

The cover art, done in the same oil painting style as star Rick Dalton's (Leonardo DiCaprio) "Comanche Uprising" poster in the film, highlights the beginning of a scene that is the closest writer-director Tarantino has gotten to a horror movie in recent memory. Stuntman Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) cruises into Spahn Ranch with his new bare-footed lady friend, Pussycat (Margaret Qualley), where the pair will meet — and Cliff will clash with — occupying members of the Manson Family. For those who haven't yet read the "Once Upon A Time..." novelization, the paperback version is far more than a re-telling or a collection of deleted scenes (though there is this notable one). 

Those who enjoyed the humanizing treatment of Sharon Tate (played by Margot Robbie), who flourished in the film as an ambitious up-and-coming actor entirely excised from her tragic real-life death, will be pleased to see Tarantino go even deeper; her introductory chapter intentionally leaves her name out until near its end, insisting upon readers meeting the woman and not the headline as she hitchhikes her way to Hollywood and stardom.

Other treats HarperCollins has in store for its hardcover edition include two color inserts featuring never-before-seen photos from the set, memorabilia from Rick Dalton's career, an original, exclusive script for a "Bounty Law" episode by Tarantino titled "Incident at Inez," and, finally, a Mad Magazine parody of the "Bounty Law" show that Dalton guest-starred on, titled, "Lousy Law: Loser's Last Ride."

The special hardcover edition of the "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" novelization retails for $30 USD and is now available for pre-order from all major booksellers to include Amazon, Target, and Barnes & Noble. The book will be landing on doorsteps starting on November 9, 2021.

Edgar Wright's Last Night In Soho Got Its Title After A Conversation With Quentin Tarantino

Edgar Wright and Quentin Tarantino are pals, and they even worked together briefly on one film "Grindhouse" back when it was a double feature and not sold separately as Tarantino's "Death Proof" and Robert Rodriguez's "Planet Terror." Wright directed "Don't," one of the funny fake trailers between the two movies. Tarantino also lent DVD commentary to "Hot Fuzz," the middle installment in Wright's Cornetto trilogy.  Apparently, it was around the time of "Grindhouse," all those years ago, when Tarantino put the idea in Wright's head for the title of his upcoming psychological horror thriller, "Last Night in Soho." The new movie, starring Thomasin...

Edgar Wright's Last Night In Soho Got Its Title After A Conversation With Quentin Tarantino

Edgar Wright and Quentin Tarantino are pals, and they even worked together briefly on one film "Grindhouse" back when it was a double feature and not sold separately as Tarantino's "Death Proof" and Robert Rodriguez's "Planet Terror." Wright directed "Don't," one of the funny fake trailers between the two movies. Tarantino also lent DVD commentary to "Hot Fuzz," the middle installment in Wright's Cornetto trilogy. 

Apparently, it was around the time of "Grindhouse," all those years ago, when Tarantino put the idea in Wright's head for the title of his upcoming psychological horror thriller, "Last Night in Soho." The new movie, starring Thomasin McKenzie, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Matt Smith, made its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival this month. Our review was mostly positive.

"Last Night in Soho" will open exclusively in theaters on October 29, 2021, via Focus Features, having had its release date pushed back several times because of the pandemic. In a new interview with Total Film, Wright explains how Tarantino impacted the naming of this film.

"The Best Title Music For A Film That's Never Been Made"

The September 16 issue of Total Film, which features an "Eternals" cover story, also takes the reader on set with Wright for "Last Night in Soho." There, he talks about the genesis of the film's title.

It started with a discussion of the song "Hold Tight" by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich. Tarantino used that song in "Death Proof," and it sparked a discussion between the two filmmakers and music lovers. Wright said:

"I was talking to him about that song, and that band, and he said, 'Have you ever heard 'Last Night in Soho'?' He played it for me, and he goes, 'This is the best title music for a film that's never been made.' I started amassing this playlist called 'Soho' that was 300 songs from the '60s. I hadn't thought what the film was going to be called. Then for a long time, it was called Red Light Area, but there was a film called Red Lights, with Cillian Murphy. And then I thought, 'OK, the film is The Night Has a Thousand Eyes'. And then I looked on IMDb, and there's already a film called Night Has a Thousand Eyes. F**k. So then it was staring me in the face, because I'd heard this song, and I thought it was great: Last Night in Soho."

It's good to know that Edgar Wright checks IMDb before naming his movies. I was a big fan of "Baby Driver," and I know there's a lot of love already for Wright with cult classics like "Shaun of the Dead" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World." So I'm eager to see "Last Night in Soho," and I'm sure plenty of other moviegoers are as well.

"Last Night in Soho" opens on October 29, 2021. It has a 17-day window of theatrical exclusivity, so even if you're not ready to venture out to the theater again, it should hopefully be on VOD a few weeks later.
