The image, posted to Instagram, shows Robbie wearing a black top, white mini-skirt and boots.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt will also play roles in the film that is due to be released on July 26, 2019, just before the 50th anniversary of Tate’s death. Burt Reynolds, Timothy Olyphant, Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning, Al Pacino, Emile Hirsch and Tim Roth also star in the movie.
DiCaprio will play Rick Dalton, former star of a western TV series, while Pitt will play his longtime stunt double, Cliff Booth.
Tarantino previously shared details about the film's plot to Variety. “Both men are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognise anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbour…Sharon Tate."
In terms of the style and tone, Tarantino said that "[the film] is probably the closest to Pulp Fiction that I’ve done. It has two lead characters and a ton of supporting characters.”
