Published Jul 12, 2017Quentin Tarantino's next film project will reportedly see the director delivering his own "unique take" on the Manson family murders.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming movie was written and will be directed by Tarantino, while producers Harvey and Bob Weinstein are also reportedly involved with the film.
Sources claim that finishing touches are currently being put on the script, and studios are expected to receive Tarantino's package after Labour Day. One source says shooting could get underway in 2018, possibly in the summer.
Talent-wise, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence have been approached to appear in the film; Pitt previously worked with Tarantino on 2009's Inglourious Basterds. A representative for Lawrence told THR that she's not considering the role of Sharon Tate. NME, meanwhile, reports that the director is eyeing Margot Robbie for said role.
Details of the script are scarce, but at least part of the story will apparently focus on the 1969 murder of Sharon Tate. The wife of Roman Polanski, Tate was brutally murdered at a Los Angeles home along with four others on August 8. She was eight months pregnant at the time.
Tarantino's last film was 2015's Oscar-winning picture The Hateful Eight.
