After winning an Oscar for 2016's The Revenant, Leonardo DiCaprio is ready for his next big hit.
The actor will be reuniting with director Quentin Tarantino for an untitled Charles Manson movie, sources tell Variety. The two previously worked together on Django Unchained in 2012.
Leo will be playing the role of an unemployed ageing actor. Tarantino is also hoping to get Margot Robbie for the role of actress Sharon Tate, who was murdered while eight months pregnant by Manson's followers. Al Pacino is also being approached for the film. We sure hope it works out because that looks like quite a star-studded cast!
According to Tarantino, the film is not a biopic per se but an ensemble film set in 1969 when Tate and six other people were killed at Charles Manson's behest.
The project is being headed by Sony and is Tarantino's first film without the Weinstein company. The filmmaker aims to release it in 2019 on the 50th anniversary of the LeBianca murders by the Manson family.
