Leonardo DiCaprio Circling Quentin Tarantino’s Charles Manson Film

- Advertisement -

Leonardo DiCaprio is in early – and I emphasize early – stages of joining Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Charles Manson film.

According to the Deadline news, Tarantino has finished the script, titled simply #9 at this point, and is shopping it around Hollywood. It’s a change for the director, whose entire career has been filtered through Harvey Weinstein and Miramax. Now that Weinstein has fallen (and Tarantino has had his own troublesome admissions regarding what he knew) and his production company has virtually collapsed, QT is looking for a studio home.

It shouldn’t take long. Al the studios are understandably interested in the screenplay, except Disney for obvious reasons…

As for Leonardo DiCaprio, nothing has been confirmed yet. There’s no indication as to who he would be playing in the film, which is set in the 60s and 70s and revolves around the Manson Family murders, but Leo seems about a foot too tall to play the diminutive madman. Sadly, Jeremy Davies already played Manson in a TV movie, because he would be a perfect fit.

Leo joins the names of Brad Pitt as possible cast members, and Margot Robbie and Jennifer Lawrence as possible choices for Sharon Tate, the most famous of the victims.
