Quentin Tarantino's next bloodfest? Film on Manson Family murders

Adjust Comment Print

After two seasons, that drama was cancelled but Quentin Tarantino caught the idea and now is going to make the crime drama on the base of the cult leader's commune formed in California during the late 1960s.

Tarantino is set to direct the project, while longtime collaborators Harvey and Bob Weinstein are reportedly attached to produce. Add Jennifer Lawrence to the mix and you're looking at one hell of a movie to keep an eye on. She and four others were slain in her and Polanski's house - where Manson believed a record producer who rejected him lived.

On the night of August 8, 1969, Manson ordered several of his followers - Atkins, Tex Watson, Patricia Krenwinkel. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Lawrence is not considering the role. It was also recently announced that #KateBosworth will portray the actress for a biopic directed by Michael Polish.

Other media reports say Margot Robbie and Leonardo DiCaprio are being considered. The Australian actress is presently based in London after her marriage with director Tom Ackerley. Her film "Goodbye Christopher Robin" will be shown on November 10, 2017.

Fortunately, it doesn't sound like Tarantino is talking to Pitt about playing Manson, according to Deadline. They have executive produced many Quentin Tarantino projects in the past including Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight.

The Pulp Fiction director is known for his use of extreme violence and language in his films. The 1994 Quentin Tarantino movie has received a cult status for being a landmark crime movie. Over the years, Mason and his band of followers have been the subject of numerous movies, which seemingly recount the same story time after time. Tarantino indicated in his interview with the Entertainment Weekly that he would not give much importance to what people thought about his movies. I'm not sure if Tarantino can unleash his brand of cartoonish gore on a savage murder that shocked so many - though I'm curious to see exactly how he will approach it.

Reports suggest that the new film could go before the cameras as early as the summer of 2018.
