> 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

*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.

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.

You had my curiosity, but now you have my attention.

I really hope Shia LaBeouf gets cast as Manson.

That's a bingo!

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.

Thank God he's not playing Manson and that this is a Pulp Fiction-type scenario around the time of the Tate house murders. For a while I was afraid this was gonna be a Charlie glorification flick.

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.

I've just consciously realized how many high-profile directors DiCaprio has gotten the privilege to work with over the last 20 years: James Cameron, Danny Boyle, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Edward Zwick, Ridley Scott, Sam Mendes, Christopher Nolan, Clint Eastwood, Alejandro G. Iñárritu, and now he's working with Quentin Tarantino once again. It's quite impressive how he has managed to rise up to the position he's currently at in such a relatively short amount of time.

How about this idea: Leo as Aging TV actor Brad Pitt as his Stuntman/Buddy Tom Cruise as Manson Margot as Sharon Tate

I'd like to see Jim Carrey as Manson, he looks the part lately and he's actually decent in serious roles.

Get Sam Rockwell for the Manson role.
13 Jan 2018 04:57 - +53
If they get Cruise as well this will easily become my most anticipated film in the works.
13 Jan 2018 04:22 - +50
Ok if you dont think Tom Cruise could play a crazy hippie cult leader, watch Born on the 4th of July and Interview with the Vampire
13 Jan 2018 10:28 - +37
I wish Heath Ledger was still around. I'll bet he'd kill it at playing Manson
13 Jan 2018 03:47 - +29
> 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...
13 Jan 2018 06:00 - +14
Leo + QT = oh FUCK yeah
13 Jan 2018 04:45 - +14
I'd love Cruise to star in this. He'd fit in well.
13 Jan 2018 04:14 - +13
I like to imagine DiCaprio as the aging actor with Cruise and Pitt playing buddy-cop, ragged detectives. Just the thought of Pulp Fiction meets Nice Guys meets LA Confidential with those three guys sounds amazing.
13 Jan 2018 03:52 - +11
So now they need to cast Leos stuntman/buddy. Could be Brad Pitt. dont think itd be tom cruise

Ok, I'm excited. Like really fucking excited.
