Leonardo DiCaprio to Join Family of Tarantino's Manson Movie

Leonardo DiCaprio To Star In Quentin Tarantino's New Movie

Leonardo DiCaprio has accepted a starring role in Quentin Tarantino's ninth film as director, and is expected to close the deal soon, according to Deadline. Deadline is reporting that the A-lister is teaming up with the award-winning director for the first time since 2012's Academy Award-winning Django Unchained. The studio, Sony Pictures, acquired the right to promote and distribute the film which will be released in August of 2019, August 9th to be exact.

The film is set in Los Angeles in the 1960s and '70s and is believed to involve the actress and model Sharon Tate, who was murdered by members of Charles Manson's notorious "family" in 1969. Robbie is in the Oscar conversation this year for her performance in I, Tonya and previously worked with DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Plot details for the unnamed Manson film are still thin on the ground at this stage, but it's thought to be a 1969-set ensemble flick that in some way details the Manson family murders - which were orchestrated by Charles Manson, one of the most widely-known serial killers of all time.

In what looks set to be a Pulp Fiction-esque cast, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Al Pacino are also being considered for roles in the yet-untitled movie.

This upcoming film will not only mark DiCaprio and Tarantino's first movie together since Django Unchained, it will also be DiCaprio's first film since The Revenant, Alejandro G. Iñárritu's critically acclaimed Western, which was released in 2015.

Are you looking forward to Tarantino and DiCaprio teaming up again? Variety also reports that Margot Robbie is being pursued to star alongside DiCaprio in the role of Sharon Tate.
