*DiCaprio’s will play an aging actor in the story that is being kept under wraps but is a Pulp Fiction-esque movie set in the 1969 Los Angeles during the summer of the Manson murders.*
*Tarantino has already asked Margot Robbie to play the role of Sharon Tate, and as Deadline has reported Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt have been circling the project with DiCaprio for what is known to be two meaty male roles.*
This has good things written all over it.
Leo’s never actually going to star in Devil in the White City, is he? He keeps signing up for other projects and that movie seems stuck in development hell.
***WALTON GOGGINS OR IT'S A BUST***
It’s crazy that this is his first major film appearance since The Revenant, which was almost three years ago. He’s at the height of his career. Most actors in his position would be trying to churn out as many movies as they can, yet DiCaprio seems very selective. I can definitely respect that.
> Tarantino has already asked Margot Robbie to play the role of Sharon Tate
Oh my God, if we got a Wolf of Wall Street reunion *and* a Django Unchained reunion in the same film I will be unable to contain myself
I wish Heath Ledger was still around. I'll bet he'd kill it at playing Manson
> The release date coincides with the 50th anniversary of Tate’s murder at the hands of the Manson family.
Didn't realize this........ Fun stuff...
The article says Pitt and Tom Cruise are circling the project as well... Would love for Cruise to play Manson but I don't know if he's actually in the movie. This sounds more like a Zodiac type movie - not ever showing killer's perspective.
Now I want so badly for Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt to sign on. Robbie's performance in I, Tonya was my favorite of the year and seeing a Pitt-Tarantino reunion would be nothing short of fantastic.
Between the [rumored] cast and Tarantino's return to modern-day films (relative to Django, Hateful Eight, and Inglorious Basterds' setting), I can't wait for this film to come out.
