Quentin Tarantino to develop a movie on the Manson family murders

Quentin Tarantino to develop a movie on the Manson family murders

Now, Quentin is going to direct the drama about the tragic events of summer'69 when Charles Manson's gang murdered the people in cold blood.

Per THR, Tarantino is finishing up a script for the film, and both Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt for roles. Both actors have already been approached about taking on a role.

Until then, let's just hope that these rumors are true and we get Margot Robbie and Jennifer Lawrence on the same screen.

Whatever direction the movie ultimately takes, it's already drawn rumored interest from a handful of A-list actors. Samuel L. Jackson is also said to be likely playing a lead role.

It wouldn't be the first time Tarantino has done a film composed of different vignettes. That could be why a movie about the Manson murders made by the Pulp Fiction powerhouse could and probably would be very good.

For Tarantino, who says he is expecting to retire after his next two films, this project may serve as a bit of a challenge for the veteran director who has previously only dealt with fictional subject matter.

Over the course of several hours on the night of August 8, the four followers, using guns and knives, brutally killed Tate, who was eight months pregnant, and four other occupants.

Charles Manson infamously interpreted The Beatles song "Helter Skelter" as a secret message for Manson and followers to "rise up", and start a race war. She was slain in a brutal murder that caught the country's attention and horrified many.

The title of Tarantino's upcoming film is still unknown, but The Hollywood Reporter was told by sources that it was written by the filmmaker himself and that he will also be its director. The script is still not finished and there still is not a studio on board. The trade magazine's sources said that Harvey and Bob Weinstein, who produced Tarantino films before are also involved. From the looks of it, Tarantino is getting some of the old gang back together and bringing in some new talent to his own bloody-minded cinematic family.
