Though plot details are still being kept in the vault, the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s as-yet-unnamed Charles Manson movie is beginning to take shape. We previously reported that Margot Robbie is being courted for the role of Sharon Tate; now, we can announce that a bunch of A-Listers are being circled for major and minor roles alike.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Al Pacino, and Tom Cruise are all currently in talks to join the production.
Per Tracking Board:
DiCaprio is in negotiations to play an aging actor in the film, which will be Tarantino’s ninth as a director but his first to be released without the input of Harvey Weinstein, as Sony won distribution rights in a recent bidding war following the producer’s scandal… [T]he director is also said to be eager to work with Cruise. [Additionally], Variety reports that Quentin Tarantino is also courting Al Pacino for a key supporting role that was written specifically for the legendary actor.
The film is targeting an August 9th, 2019 release date to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the Tate Murders.
