Lena Dunham will be starring in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Variety reports. Maya Hawke (Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke’s daughter), and Lorenza Izzo (Feed the Beast) have also been added to the cast.

Dunham will play a character called Gypsy, while Hawke’s goes by the name of Flower Child. Izzo is Francesca Capucci, a “glamorous Italian movie star.”

The trio will join Leonardo DiCaprio’s character, a former Western actor, and his stunt double, played by Brad Pitt, in telling a story revolving around the Manson Family murders.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood hits theaters nationwide on July 26, 2019, two weeks earlier than its initial August 9 release date — assumedly to avoid releasing on the 50th anniversary of Shannon Tate’s death.

Margot Robbie, Luke Perry, Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning, and Al Pacino, also appear in the movie.
