Quentin Tarantino Developing Manson Family Murders Movie

Quentin Tarantino Prepping New Movie Tackling Manson Murders (Exclusive)

Charles Manson and his family committed a killing spree across California in 1969 that ended in the disgusting murder of five people at the home of director Roman Polanski.

Quentin Tarantino's next film will be about the infamous California cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson, according to both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter.

In 1971, Manson and certain members of his crew were sentenced to life imprisonment for these and several other murders committed that summer.

For years, Tarantino has said that he'll only direct ten movies in his career, and if this story by The Hollywood Reporter is true, then he's already up to movie number nine.

Tarantino is reportedly already looking at A-list talent to join the project, and early names being banded around include Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence and Margot Robbie, who could play Manson victim Sharon Tate. She still has three films with no release dates set - "Beautiful Things", "The Queen of Scots", and "Marian". Tate was eight months pregnant at the time, and four others were killed on that August evening. The site has also heard that Pitt's character could be a detective investigating the Tate murders. (The Hateful Eight was, appropriately, his eighth movie.) Fans have speculated on what we should expect from those last two directorial ventures, fueled in part by Tarantino's own past statements about story ideas.




Tarantino's regular collaborator Samuel L. Jackson is also said to be slated for a lead role.

If the project comes to fruition, it will mark Tarantino's first foray into a film based on true events.

The film, which will reportedly shoot in 2018, isn't the first to be made about the Manson Family.

Tarantino has always been interested in eschewing historical accuracy in favor of puncturing assumptions about film genres and, in particular, the mechanics of violence.
