ROB­BIE UP FOR ROLE OF HOR­ROR

Townsville Bulletin - - NATION -

SHE’S just fin­ished play­ing in­fa­mous ice skater Tonya Hard­ing in the up­com­ing biopic I, Tonya – and it seems Aussie it girl Mar­got Rob­bie might have an­other big role in wait­ing af­ter that.

Dead­line reports that the 27- yearold for­mer Neigh­bours star is in talks with Pulp Fic­tion and Kill Bill di­rec­tor Quentin Tarantino to star in his next project, a drama re­volv­ing around the no­to­ri­ous Man­son Fam­ily mur­ders.

Led by Charles Man­son, the Fam­ily com­mit­ted a crime spree across Cal­i­for­nia in 1969 cul­mi­nat­ing in the hor­rific mur­der of five peo­ple at the home of di­rec­tor Ro­man Polan­ski and his wife, Sharon Tate.

Rob­bie is in talks to play Tate, 26, who was eight months preg­nant with the cou­ple’s first child when the Man­son Fam­ily gang bru­tally stabbed her to death in a crime that shocked the world.

Also ear­marked for the as- yetun­ti­tled film, ac­cord­ing to Dead­line, are Tarantino’s fre­quent col­lab­o­ra­tor Sa­muel L. Jack­son, Jen­nifer Lawrence and In­glou­ri­ous Bas­terds star Brad Pitt, who is be­ing courted to play the de­tec­tive in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mur­ders.

The film would be Tarantino’s first re­lease since The Hate­ful Eight in 2015, and would add to an al­ready busy film­ing sched­ule for Rob­bie, who has four films set for re­lease in 2016 and 2017.

IN DE­MAND: Aus­tralian ac­tress Mar­got Rob­bie is be­ing con­sid­ered by Quentin Tarantino for his film about the Man­son Fam­ily mur­ders.
