I didn't intend to write about two upcoming serial killer-themed movies in a row, but sometimes that Friday news dump brings you unexpected connections like that.
Deadline is reporting that Leonardo DiCaprio will be rejoining his Django Unchained director for that still Untitled Charles Manson-related flick. Quentin Tarantino has gone out to say it's not exactly about Manson and his crimes, but it does take place in LA at the time Manson and his family were active.
DiCaprio will be playing an aging actor (so not Manson) and that's about all that is known. We do know that Tarantino wants Margot Robbie to play Sharon Tate, the very pregnant model, actress and wife of Roman Polanski who ended up being the Manson Family's most high-profile victim.
Deadline reiterates that the project still has other A-listers circling for two meaty parts. Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt are potentially joining the project as well, which, if it happens, would make this one of the most jam-packed star-studded films since the Oceans films.
The draw of Tarantino will do that, I guess. Can't wait to see what he does with this one!
