The idea of Quentin Tarantino making a Pulp Fiction-esque period film set in Hollywood during the time of the Charles Manson murders is a unusual one, and we still have next to no idea what the movie will actually be. A ton of resources are being put into this project and it sounds as if it will be one of Tarantino's biggest films of his career. The release date for the picture coincides with the 50th anniversary of the date Sharon Tate was murder at the hands of the Manson family.
Following the announcement that he had finished the script, Tarantino teased us with a bit of info about the highly anticipated forthcoming movie towards the end of past year, simply saying that "it's not Charles Manson, it's 1969" at apost-screening brunch at Estrella on Sunset for Sofia Coppola's The Beguiled. DiCaprio is the first actor to officially sign on to the project, and the production is still going after Margot Robbie to play Sharon Tate with Tom Cruise also being eyed for another role. Rather, it will be a Pulp Fiction-esque film that simply takes place at the time of the Manson murders in Hollywood. DiCaprio previously played a villain in Tarantino's 2012 movie Django Unchained.

Deadlinehas also suggested that Tarantino's made offers to Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt for parts, and that he has written a character with old fave Samuel L. Jackson in mind. Tarantino has been on a kick recently of creating films set in the past, with his own very bloody twist and tone added to them.
