Quentin Tarantino‘s ninth movie has officially taken by the Sony Pictures. All we know about this amazing new project is, it is set in the 1969 and that the Manson family murders will serve as a backdrop to the story.
Margot Robbie wanted the role of the actress and Manson Family victim Sharon Tate, and Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio are also wanted to fill two lead roles. Thanks to Vanity Fair, we got some more details about the project:
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 is already being compared to the Pulp Fiction and it’s said to have “heart and a strong commercial appeal.” Sounds like it will be an amazing character piece and feature a setting that Tarantino is going to put his signature magic in the project. Let’s get ready for some barrels of blood kind of fun.
The project got a decent $100 million budget and it will start shooting in June and it will hit theaters in 2019.
