Quentin Tarantino's Manson Family-Themed Movie To Be Released on The 50th Anniversary of Sharon Tate's Death
Not long after Sony Pictures picked up the rights to Quentin Tarantino's Manson Family-themed movie, they announced the release date. The untitled movie is set for release on August 9th, 2019, which marks the 50th anniversary of Sharon Tate's brutal murder.
The director wants to cast Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate in the film, and Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio are also wanted to fill two male lead roles. As far as the story for the film goes, this is all we know so far:
Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, Tarantino’s upcoming movie, according to a source who read the script, focuses on a male TV actor who’s had one hit series and his looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick—who’s also his stunt double—is looking for the same thing. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate and four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story.
The script has also been compared to Pulp Fiction and it's said to have "heart and a strong commercial appeal."
The movie will have a $100 million budget and it's set to start shooting in June. Are you looking forward to seeing what Quentin Tarantino is planning for the film?
