Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film will center on the Manson Murders

Quentin Tarantino Manson Movie Wants Margot Robbie

However it now looks like that project has been put on hold as a leak has revealed the acclaimed director is working on a film about the Manson Family murders in 1969 Los Angeles.

And now King of Blood Quentin Tarantino is said to be polishing a script based on the events and has begun talking to big names like Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the director has been quietly putting together a project based on Manson and more specifically the 1969 murders of Sharon Tate and three of her friends, and he's nearly finished with the screenplay. Manson is now serving a life sentence in prison, along with those of several of his followers. She and four others were slain in her and Polanski's house - where Manson believed a record producer who rejected him lived.

For years, Tarantino has said that he'll only direct ten movies in his career, and if this story by The Hollywood Reporter is true, then he's already up to movie number nine.

THR notes that the film would mark Tarantino's first feature film to be based on a true story; his 2009 film, Inglourious Basterds, was set during World War II but depicted an alternate historical reality.

Tate, hailed at the time as one of Hollywood's most promising up and coming stars, was brutally murdered while eight and a half months pregnant, at her own home in 1968 by members of the Manson family.

Meanwhile, Deadline indicated that Margot Robbie has also been in talks about a part in the movie (possibly the role of Sharon Tate) and suggests that Tarantino-movie mainstay, Samuel L. Jackson, will also most likely show up in some capacity.

That's dark, even for Tarantino, whose characters tend to be criminals and vigilantes with morals-rarely cold-blooded murderers.

One thing that sucks about this is that when info about The Hateful Eight (and specifically the script) leaked online in 2014, QT vowed not to make the film at all.

Reports suggest that the new film could go before the cameras as early as the summer of 2018.
