Tarantino's New Film Isn't Exactly a Manson Family Movie

“It’s not Charles Manson, it’s 1969.”

Quentin Tarantino’s next film isn’t solely focused on the Manson murders, rather the time in which they took place.

“It’s not Charles Manson, it’s 1969,” Tarantino said about the movie (via IndieWire). The writer-director’s next project, supposedly the penultimate film in his storied career, will reportedly star Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie. Robbie is rumored to play Sharon Tate, the actress infamously killed by the Manson Family in August 1969.

According to Variety, Paramount, Sony, and Warner Bros. are the frontrunners to secure distribution rights to the film. In an effort to woo Tarantino, Warner Bros. reportedly outfitted its studio with cars and furniture from the late ’60s and covered its marquee with “the Warner Bros. logo circa 1969.”

The film is expected to begin production in 2018, with Tarantino reportedly seeking a budget of “roughly $ 100 million” USD.
