When Jennifer Aniston announced her split from Justin Theroux in early February, fans couldn’t help but wonder if she would reignite her romance with Brad Pitt. But with Aniston uninterested in reuniting with the War Machine star, Pitt is moving past the drama by focusing on a new project with Leonardo DiCaprio.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Pitt is starring alongside DiCaprio in a new film by Quentin Tarantino, titled Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
The movie is about a former western TV star, Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), who is fighting to stay afloat in Hollywood in 1969 with his stunt double, Cliff Booth (Pitt). While the men struggle to find work in an ever-changing industry, Rick finds himself living next door to a Hollywood mega-star: Sharon Tate.
“I’m very excited to tell this story of an L.A. and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff,” Tarantino shared.

Pitt previously worked with Tarantino on Inglorious Basterds while DiCaprio teamed up with the director in Django Unchained. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is scheduled to premiere in not he big screens in the summer of 2019.
Pitt’s new project comes weeks after Aniston announced her shocking split with Theroux. Although fans would like nothing more than to see Aniston and Pitt rekindle things, an insider revealed that the Friends star isn’t interested in the proposition.
The source says Aniston will always have feelings for her ex-husband but doesn’t want to get involved romantically.
Aniston dated Pitt in 1998 and the pair exchanged vows two years later. The couple parted ways in 2005 while Pitt was working on the movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith with Angelina Jolie.
At the time, there was a lot of speculation that Pitt had cheated on Aniston with Jolie, whom he started dating shortly after the divorce and eventually married. But what did Pitt think about the whole Aniston drama?

An insider close to the actor claims that he was sad to hear that Aniston’s marriage didn’t work out. The actor also wished her the best, though he has not been in contact with her and has no plans to reach out. Pitt is still a single man following his divorce with Jolie going on two years ago.
Aniston and Theroux announced their divorce on February 15 after months of speculation. The couple had only been married for two years and parted ways amicably. The pair did not say why they couldn’t make things work out, but they had been living in separate parts of the country because of work. The long-distance nature of their relationship is believed to have played a big part in the breakup.
Brad Pitt has not commented on his upcoming project or Aniston’s split.
