It seems that Leonardo DiCaprio will star in Quentin Tarantino’s movie revolving around Charles Manson. This means that the director and the actor will work together for the first time since 2012’s Django Unchained.
This will be the 9th movie that Tarantino directs, and it was scooped up by Sony. The film already has the release date set for August 9, 2019.
After the deal closes, this will be Leo’s first movie since he finally won that Oscar that he deserved for a really long time. Leo eventually won an Oscar for the film called The Revenant.
Tarantino asked Margot Robbie to play the role of Sharon Tate in the movie. Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt have also been asked to join the team.
It seems that Leo will be playing an aging actor in Tarantino’s story, but we don’t have any details on the plot for now.
What we do know is that the story will be set during the time of the Manson murder spree in LA.
The movie’s release date is the same with the 50th anniversary of Sharon Tate’s murder by the hands of the Manson family. The movie’s production is set to begin this year and will have an $18 million California production tax credit.
