Leonardo DiCaprio Signs On For New Quentin Tarantino Film on Charles Manson

Leonardo DiCaprio To Star In Quentin Tarantino's New Movie

Leonardo DiCaprio is reteaming with Quentin Tarantino for the director's new film about the Manson Family murders. DiCaprio has previously starring in Tarantino's 2012 hit DJANGO UNCHAINED. Precisely what this film is about remains a mystery, as Tarantino has confusingly said that it's not actually about the Manson murders, despite Manson victim Sharon Tate reportedly playing a central role in the narrative (and the film releasing on August 9th, the date she was killed).

All of Tarantino's past work has been distributed by The Weinstein Company and, well...nobody wants that guy's name stuck on the front of their movie these days, so Quentin has shopped the film around Hollywood.

'If anyone tried to duplicate what [Quentin] does I think they would be sued for copyright infringement, ' DiCaprio - who almost played Hans Landa in Inglorious Basterds - told EW back in 2012.

The last time Leonardo and the two-time Oscar victor collaborated was in 2012 on Tarantino's critically-acclaimed western, which amassed $425.4M at the worldwide box office.

Rep. Gaetz: 'Outrageous' If FBI Used Dossier as Basis for Russia Investigation
A spokeswoman for BuzzFeed responded to Cohen's lawsuit by defending its controversial decision to publish the dossier. Michael Cohen said in a Twitter post on Tuesday, calling the dossier "fake".

The movie, which will be Tarantino's first without Harvey Weinstein's involvement and will be released through Sony Pictures, is said to be similar to Pulp Fiction in that it has multiple interwoven story strands. The deal is expected to close soon, and this will become DiCaprio's first film since he won the Oscar for The Revenant.

Sony declined to comment on the story. Find more details on DiCaprio joining the Tarantino Manson Family movie cast below.

However, in the same way that InglouriousBasterds wasn't just a movie about Hitler, Tarantino's movie isn't thought to be focused exclusively around Manson or Tate.

The film, whose working title is #9 (referencing Tarantino's ninth feature film as director), will be set in Los Angeles and will likely shoot in the summer of 2018.
