Quentin Tarantino developing movie about Manson Family murders

13 July 2017

Word of Quentin Tarantino's next project has started to leak out, which means it's time for another round of "New Tarantino Movie Rumor Saga". 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 and select members of his cult were sentenced to life imprisonment in 1971 for these and several other murders committed in the summer of '69.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Pulp Fiction filmmaker had a secret meeting with Robbie this year, although the outcome is unknown.

And with the Tarantino name comes his usual cabal of movie stars: Brad Pitt, possibly Jennifer Lawrence, who was in talks to play Daisy Domergue in The Hateful Eight, and now Margot Robbie.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing in Chaman, which is near the Afghan border town of Spin Boldak. Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar has condemned the blast and asked the authorities to present report of explosion.

Regarding the plot, "one of the story's centers on Sharon Tate", who was married to the director Roman Polanski when she and a houseful of people fell victim to the Manson family. The site has also heard that Pitt's character could be a detective investigating the Tate murders. Manson's followers broke into the Tate residence in the summer of 1969, murdering a pregnant Sharon Tate as well as four guests. Deadline added that Tarantino regular Samuel L. Jackson would also have a lead in the film.

Although Quentin Tarantino has made two westerns and a World War II drama, a film about the so-called "Manson Family" would be the first time the writer/director has explicitly dramatized real-life events.

"Tarantino actually covering the actual murders sounds like the least respectful thing imaginable", one Twitter user wrote.

It's believed the film will shoot during 2018, meaning it will probably be released around Oscar season in late 2018 or early 2019.
