In one of a number of Charles Manson-related projects that are currently in the works, the feature film “The Haunting of Sharon Tate” has cast Hilary Duff in the title role, The New York Post’s Page Six reports.
Duff became a teen sensation as the star of the Disney Channel comedy series “Lizzie McGuire” in the early 2000s. More recently she has been playing Kelsey Peters on TV Land’s “Younger.”
Duff also has a thriving music career and is a best-selling novelist.
Described as a psychological horror film, Skyline Entertainment’s “The Haunting of Sharon Tate” also stars Jonathan Bennett and Lydia Hearst.
“The film, written and directed by Daniel Farrands, takes a look at the last days leading up to Tate’s murder from her point of view,” The Post reports. “The plot is inspired by an actual quote from Tate, from an interview published a year before her death, wherein she reveals having dreams about ghosts haunting her house and foreseeing her own death at the hands of a satanic cult.”
The project is separate from a film Quentin Tarantino has in the works about Charles Manson, which also features Tate as a character.
