TheOscar-winning actor will apparently not play the quintessential American cult leader but will instead play an aging actor in the movie.
The yet-to-be-titled movie will be produced by David Heyman of Harry Potter fame as well as Tarantino himself, Shannon McIntosh and Georgia Kacandes.
If reports are to be believed, the director has asked Margot Robbie to star as Sharon Tate in the movie.
The plot details of the movie have not be known as yet but the director had earlier said that it was not a biographical movie but a story set during the summer of1969, when a string of gruesome killings in Southern Californiawere carried out by Manson’s followers.
If reports are to be believed, Tom Cruise, Brad Pittand Al Pacino are also rumored to be approached for the movie.
Charles Manson-themed movie will be the first Tarantino film to be released without the Weinstein Company. It can be recollected that Harvey Weinstein was alleged of sexual misconduct by around 70 women. However, Weinstein has denied the allegations of non-consensual sex with anyone.
