Leonardo DiCaprio signs up to star in Quentin Tarantino's new Manson family thriller
Leonardo DiCaprio has signed up for a starring role in Quentin Tarantino's new thriller.
The movie, which looks set to be based on the notorious Charles Manson murders of the late 1960's, will see DiCaprio play an ageing actor, according to Deadline.
The 1969 case saw Charles Manson, a cult leader, order four of his followers to attack the inhabitants of a house in Los Angeles he believed owned by a record producer who rejected him. The attack left actress Sharon Tate dead along with four others. Margot Robbie is the director's choice to play Tate.
Tarantino's new movie, which is presently untitled, is due out on August 9th in 2019 and will be distributed by Sony Pictures after the demise of The Weinstein Company.
