Adjust Comment Print

Leonardo DiCaprio will reteam with his Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino for his "Pulp Fiction-esque" ninth feature centered around the Charles Manson murders in Hollywood back in 1969.

At the moment, no one is precisely sure regarding the details of the film, but supposedly it will take place in the summer of 1969 - the Summer of Love - during Manson's murder spree.

The yet-unnamed film, already slated for release on August 9, 2019, will center around cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson. DiCaprio will be playing an aging actor, while his The Wolf of Wall Street co-star Margot Robbie is is being courted to play slain actress Sharon Tate. According to Variety, that is still in play. Additionally, Tarantino has reportedly also written a supporting role with Al Pacino in mind. Unsurprisingly, this is shaping up to be an event picture.
