In the film, DiCaprio will play the role of an aging actor on what Deadline describes as a “Pulp Fiction-esque movie set” during the summer of 1969. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate and four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story.
Tarantino has asked Margot Robbie to play slain actress Sharon Tate in the film, but Robbie’s casting isn’t final yet.
Not only with this film reunites Tarantino and DiCaprio, it will also be DiCaprio’s first role since winning the Oscar for getting eaten by a bear in The Revenant. Tarantino is still looking for the second male lead for the film.The word has been that Quentin wants either Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt for the role. Variety also reports that Tarantino wants Al Pacino for a role as well. After this film, Tarantino next plans to helm an R-rated Star Trek movie, which sounds incredible and I can’t wait.
The currently untitled Quentin Tarantino Manson movie will open on August 9, 2019.
Are you guys excited to see DiCaprio back with Tarantino? I personally thought he stole Django Unchained, it was by the Pitt’s best performance in years.
