Tarantino’s next film focuses on Charles Manson murders
Quentin Tarantino is preparing his next movie project centring on notorious cult leader Charles Manson and his murderous followers. The Hollywood Reporter and Variety report Tarantino’s untitled film project will have a unique take on the horrifying “Manson Family” murders of 1969. Tarantino, who will direct, is putting the final touches on the script, according to THR. Major stars such as Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence have been approached for roles with plans to shoot the film in 2018. Manson has been serving nine life sentences at Corcoran State Prison in Corcoran, Calif., for orchestrating a bloody crime spree executed by his “family” of followers in July and August 1969 that included five murders at the California home of director Roman Polanski. Among the victims was Polanski’s pregnant wife, actress Sharon Tate.
