Amazon Studios has scored the rights to Brian K. Vaughan’s best-selling graphic novel series “Paper Girls” and has handed out a TV series commitment for the property.

The series follows four young girls who, while out delivering papers on the morning after Halloween in 1988, become unwittingly caught in a conflict between warring factions of time-travellers. This sends them on an adventure through time that will save the world.

As they travel between our present, the past, and the future – they encounter future versions of themselves and now must choose to embrace or reject their fate.

Legendary Television (“Lost In Space,” “Carnival Row”) and Brad Pitt’s company Plan B will produce the series with “Toy Story 4” co-writer Stephany Folsom to pen the adaptation. She and Vaughan will executive produce.

Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie have officially begun promoting their upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and things look to be off to a fun start. On Thursday, the trio linked up with director Quentin Tarantino for a photocall at the Four Seasons Hotel in LA, where they posed for pictures on a makeshift movie set. At least, Margot sure tried to pose for photos on a makeshift movie set, but her costar had other ideas. Brad was seen flying through the air (with the greatest of ease!) while the actress – who portrays Sharon Tate in the film – laughed in the background. For the record, Leo wasn’t safe from a photobomb from Mr. Pitt, either.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood follows a TV actor (DiCaprio) and his stunt double (Pitt) as they navigate Los Angeles during the infamous Manson Family murders in August 1969. “It takes place at the height of the counter-culture explosion, at the height of the hippie revolution, and at the height of a new Hollywood,” Quentin Tarantino explained. Keep reading to see Brad’s impressive photobombing efforts, and stay tuned for more fun promo moments ahead of OUATIH’s July 26 release.

The writer-director makes a two-and-a-half-hour appearance on the latest episode of the Pure Cinema Podcast to discuss upcoming screenings at Los Angeles’ New Beverly Cinema, which Tarantino owns and programs. The films talked about include his latest offering, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, with Tarantino teasing some of the real-life actors who inspired its lead characters.

“Brad came over to the house,” says Tarantino. “He brought something he wanted to watch with me, and he hadn’t seen it in a long time, but he was thinking that this could be a good starting place… for his character, Cliff. He pulls out a DVD of Billy Jack and he went, ‘I was thinking maybe Tom Laughlin, maybe we should watch Billy Jack and think about that.’ And I go, ‘Brad, I have a 35 mm print of Billy Jack, threaded up on the projector, waiting for you to get here.’ He couldn’t believe that we both were thinking of Billy Jack — and more Tom Laughlin.”

“Hold on,” says Pitt. We’re speaking over the phone, as he makes his way home in LA and some guy – a guy who’s about to have a story he can dine out on for years – is blocking traffic.

“What are you doing?” asks Pitt, giving the horn a couple of short pumps. Then two more, longer this time.

“Oh you know, I’m just taking care of business,” he says, when we ask what the reaction is to Brad Pitt honking someone on a sunny LA afternoon. “But he might have a story that Brad Pitt just honked at him, and said to get the fuck out of the way.”

Pitt is a star in a way that few Hollywood actors are. Not just famous but such a part of the culture that it feels surreal anyone could cross paths with him in the regular world of supermarkets and grocery aisles, or even on the road. He’s a star in the way they used to make them in Hollywood.

Speaking on behalf of Quentin Tarantino, as well as the dynamic between the cast and crew, Brad Pitt told FAB TV:

“First of all, his set, it’s just a joy. He loves cinema so much, as you know, and loves talking about it…There’s a great verve and energy on the set; it’s unlike any others. And then working together [referencing the whole crew] it was just real automatic for us. I can’t describe it more than that. It was just really easy and a good laugh. We came on the scene around the same time. We have a lot of the same references, and we all know the same people. He’s just really giving and generous. You see that in the film.”
