Luke Perry passed away in March after having a massive stroke. The final time fans will be able to see him on screen will be in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. According to Entertainment Weekly, working with the legendary director was on Perry’s bucket list. “[Luke] brings a very vivid character who is charismatic, and he brings heart to whatever he does. I think that it will be a pleasure for those fans of Luke to see,” stated Tarantino’s producer David Heyman.
According to another producer, Shannon McIntosh, “Luke went in and won that part and deserved that part and owned that part, so it’s really special that was a bucket list that he was able to work with Quentin. His performance is amazing and he will be remembered as we release this movie, and his family will celebrate his performance with us.”
