Leonardo DiCaprio to star in new Quentin Tarantino movie about Charles Manson

Leonardo DiCaprio has been cast in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming ninth movie.

Variety has confirmed that Oscar victor Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant, The Departed) will reunite with his Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino for his currently-untitled ninth movie, which will be released by Sony Pictures on August 9, 2019. However, confirmation that Leonardo DiCaprio has taken a lead role in his next film is just cream on the strudel.

According to Deadline, DiCaprio will play an "aging actor" in the film, which is being described as a Pulp Fiction-esque flick set in 1969 Los Angeles during the summer of the Charles Manson murders. Apparently, Cruise and Brad Pitt were up for the same role, which is rumored to be that of a prosecutor, and that it's Cruise's part if he wants it. His sidekick - who's also his stunt double - is looking for the same thing.

The release date coincides with the 50th anniversary of Tate's murder at the hands of the Manson family. Deadline reports that DiCaprio is going to be playing the male TV actor (so, sorry everyone who immediately assumed DiCaprio would be playing Charles Manson). Margot Robbie has been approached to play Sharon Tate, the the very real pregnant young actress and wife of filmmaker Roman Polanski, who was brutally murdered along with four others in her home by Manson Family members on August 9, 1969. After all that, however, Tarantino signed with Sony.

The project will be Leonardo's first since he won a Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Hugh Glass in The Revenant.

The film will be Tarantino's ninth feature. The director has long maintained that he will retire from Hollywood after his 10th film, which is looking more and more like an R-rated Star Trek movie Tarantino has been developing for a few months now.
