Leonardo DiCaprio to Star in Quentin Tarantino's Charles Manson-Themed Movie

The last time the two worked together was for Django Unchained and that earned DiCaprio an Oscar nomination. A ton of resources are being put into this project and it sounds as if it will be one of Tarantino's biggest films of his career.

DiCaprio will play an aging, out-of-work actor in the film. So, if she is tapped for the Tarantino film - she already has experience portraying a real-life person where audiences already know an extensive backstory. Margot Robbie has been approached to play the ill-fated actress, though Tarantino claims the movie won't really be about Manson. The film will open on the 50th anniversary of the day the Manson family committed the LaBianca murders and the day Sharon Tate was killed. Rather, it will be a Pulp Fiction-esque film that simply takes place at the time of the Manson murders in Hollywood.

DiCaprio's kept fairly quiet since taking home the Oscar for Best Actor with The Revenant in 2015, and while he did promote his documentary Before the Flood, it will be interesting to see if this untitled film will mark the actor's first movie in four years or if the gangster film The Black Hand, which has DiCaprio set to star, will be his new picture. While the role is said to be "meaty", nearly no specific details have been released about the plot or the character. Variety is reporting that Tarantino also wants Al Pacino in the movie, and that the filmmaker has even written a role in the movie specifically for the veteran actor. Other A-list names such as Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence have also been rumored in previous months, though that remains unconfirmed. Find more details on DiCaprio joining the Tarantino Manson Family movie cast below. Tarantino has been on a kick recently of creating films set in the past, with his own very bloody twist and tone added to them.

However, in the same way that InglouriousBasterds wasn't just a movie about Hitler, Tarantino's movie isn't thought to be focused exclusively around Manson or Tate.
