Quentin Tarantino will be working with an old friends for his upcoming Charles Manson movie with Leonardo DiCaprio joining the cast…
Leonardo DiCaprio is returning to the world of Quentin Tarantino.
The Oscar winning actor has signed on to star in Tarantino’s upcoming movie based around the Charles Manson murders in the 1970’s after first working with the prolific writer/director on ‘Django Unchained’ back in 2012.
According to Variety, DiCaprio will play an aging, out of work actor in the movie with Margot Robbie currently being pursued to play the role of Sharon Tate. Sources also say that Tarantino is looking at Tom Cruise and Al Pacino for additional roles in the film.
Tarantino’s latest film is expected to land in theaters on Aug. 9, 2019, which is exactly 50 years to the date that the Manson family committed the horrific Tate-LaBianca murders in which Tate and her unborn child were killed.
There’s not much known about Tarantino’s script for the movie outside of the film not being a biopic about Manson but instead a larger story about the time period when the Manson family existed and the murders were carried out.
