Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino is reportedly lining up A-list talent for a new project that promises a “unique take” on the Manson family murders, The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision reports in an exclusive.
“The project, whose title is unknown, was written by Tarantino, who would also direct,” THR reports. “Harvey and Bob Weinstein, who have produced and executive produced the previous Tarantino films, are involved, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.”
Among those who have been approached are Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence, according to THR’s sources. The plan is reportedly to shoot the movie in 2018, possibly during the summer.
“Script details are fuzzy but one of the stories centers on Sharon Tate, the actress and wife of director Roman Polanski who was murdered by Manson and his followers in 1969,” THR adds. The report notes that if the movie gets made, it will be Tarantino’s first to be based on true events.
