Leonardo DiCaprio set for Quentin Tarantino #9

Variety has confirmed that Oscar winner 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. DiCaprio will be playing an aging actor, while his The Wolf of Wall Street co-star Margot Robbie is is being courted to play slain actress Sharon Tate. A deal for Tom Cruise to co-star is also being pursued, a part that was reportedly passed on by Brad Pitt. According to the trade’s Justin Kroll, Al Pacino has also been offered a role in the ensemble, which was written expressly for him by Tarantino.

The film, whose working title is #9 (referencing Tarantino’s ninth feature film as director), will be set in Los Angeles and will likely shoot in the summer of 2018. Despite the film revolving around the Manson Family murders, Charles Manson himself will not be a lead character but more a background player. Vanity Fair previously revealed the first plot details for the set-in-1969 movie from a source that has read the script:

“Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, Tarantino’s upcoming movie focuses on a male TV actor who’s had one hit series and his looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick—who’s also his stunt double—is looking for the same thing. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate and four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story.”

Sources also have compared the film to Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction while noting it will have a budget in the range of Django Unchained, which had a $100-million budget but grossed over $425 million at the global box office.

The release date for the film will mark the 50th anniversary of the murder of Sharon Tate and four others on August 9, 1969.
