Quentin Tarantino has written the screenplay for his next film, which is set to tackle the real-life subject of the Manson Murders.
The popular screenwriter-director will also direct the film which does not yet have a title, and has reportedly contacted several A-list stars – including Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence – regarding the possibility of them filling central roles on the project.
Though details on the story of the film are still largely unknown, it is believed that at least one strand of the picture will focus on the death of actress Sharon Tate at the hands of Manson and his followers in 1969. Tate, who was 8 months pregnant at the time, and the wife of director Roman Polanski, was one of five fatalities in the brutal act conducted by a number of Charles Manson followers.
This film would be the first true-to-life story that Tarantino has put to screen in his illustrious career.
Long-term collaborators the Weinstein Brothers are said to be heavily involved in the project.
Update: Margot Robbie was reportedly contacted by Tarantino regarding the possibility of the actress filling the role of Sharon Tate and it is expected that Samuel L. Jackson shall play the movie’s central character.
