Quentin Tarantino in talks with Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt for new movie based on Charles Manson Murders
Quentin Tarantino is in talks with Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt about leading roles in his new movie.
According to Deadline, the director has spoken to Cruise, DiCaprio and Pitt about taking lead roles in the new movie, but it is unlikely all three will sign up due to scheduling conflicts.
Tarantino is also hoping to secure Margot Robbie for the movie, which looks set to be based around the notorious Charles Manson murders of the late 1960's.
The director has been working on his follow-up to The Hateful Eight for the last two years and reports have now surfaced that he is to put his own spin on the shocking incident in Los Angeles in 1969.
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. Robbie is the director's choice to play Tate.
Tarantino is also on the lookout for a new studio after the demise of The Weinstein Company and has signed up with Harry Potter helmer David Heyman. Every major studio, with the exception of Disney, has made overtures to the director, with the decision about his new home to be taken later this month.
