It seems that we won’t have to wait too much longer to see the next film from Quentin Tarantino as new reports suggest his next project might not be too far away from starting up.
The Hollywood Reporter has said that Tarantino is putting the final touches on his latest script which reportedly centres around the Manson Family murders that took place in the late ’60s. Details on the film aren’t known quite yet but part of the film will focus on the murder of Sharon Tate in 1969, who was the wife of Roman Polanski.
Harvey and Bob Weinstein, who has been involved in previous films with Tarantino, are set to be involved once again and that they are looking for co-financiers and distributors for the film.
In addition, reports suggest that a few big A-listers are being eyed for roles in the film. Brad Pitt, who starred in Inglourious Basterds in 2009, is being courted as is Jennifer Lawrence (Mother!) who has also reportedly been approached. Lawrence had been in talks to feature in The Hateful Eight in 2015 but had to turn down his offer due to her packed schedule at the time. Some gossip sites suggested the pair had lunch together last month so they could make it work this time.
Deadline suggests that Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad) is also being eyed for the film with early indications that the film could shoot next summer. The plan is to shoot in 2018, possibly in the summer.
Tarantino’s last film was The Hateful Eight but this project would be the first time the filmmaker has taken on a real-life event – the Manson murders were international headlines after it was revealed that Manson and his followers brutally killed Tate over the course of a few hours before they were all sentenced to life in prison in 1971.
