Officially Boards Quentin Tarantino's New Movie

Leonardo Di Caprio to star in Quentin Tarantino's Charles Manson movie

According to Variety, the actor will play the role of an aging, out-of-work actor in the yet-to-be titled film.

Leonardo DiCaprio will star in Quentin Tarantino's highly anticipated Charles Manson movie. She also starred in Wolf of Wall Street, across Leonardo DiCaprio. DiCaprio's name has been attached to a handful of new projects, including an adaptation of The Black Hand, a Martin Scorsese-directed Theodore Roosevelt biopic, a Scorsese adaptation of Killers of the Flower Moon, and a Leonardo Da Vinci biopic. While Tarantino insists that the Manson angle won't be the focus, he has confirmed that he's been in talks to Margot Robbie about playing Sharon Tate, and that both Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt have name-dropped as potentially appearing. This should be of interest to Tarantino and DiCaprio fans, many of whom speculated that Tarantino's Django Unchained villain was circling the role of Charles Manson himself. There is no word at the moment with regard to the second one and what type of role it is.

The movie is being developed at Sony Pictures, which has set 9 August, 2019, as its release date to mark the 50th anniversary of the murder of Tate.
