Leonardo DiCaprio To Star In Quentin Tarantino's Upcoming Charles Manson Movie

Leonardo DiCaprio To Star In Quentin Tarantino's Upcoming Charles Manson Movie

Leonardo DiCaprio has said yes to starring in Quentin Tarantino's new movie, which will reteam the actor and director from 2012's Django Unchained.

The yet-unnamed film, already slated for release on August 9, 2019, will center around cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson. Variety reports that the structure will be similar to Pulp Fiction's with an ensemble approach.

DiCaprio will play "an aging actor" evidently, though whether this is a fictional character created specifically for the story or an actual aging actor from 1969 is unknown. The Academy Award-winning actor is in talks to star in the now untitled project about Charles Manson and the Manson family murders.

When the malicious code is installed onto your phone, it waits for the user to unlock the device to start the malicious activity. In some cases, the malware would also prompt users to register for premium services - meaning charges would be applied.

Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise have also been rumoured to be attached to the project, which is apparently set to involve two main male roles. 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).

DiCaprio hasn't been seen on the big screen since his Oscar-winning turn in The Revenant, but has lined up numerous high-profile projects, including a reunion with longtime collaborator Martin Scorsese for a Teddy Roosevelt biopic at Paramount. He had been serving a life sentence for ordering the murders of nine people including actress Sharon Tate.

Sony Pictures, part of Sony Corp, did not return a request for comment on the casting.
