Last week it was revealed that Quentin Tarantino’s next movie had found a new home at Sony after he understandably ditched the Weinstein company. We also learnt that Tarantino wants Margot Robbie for the role of Tate and is also considering roles for the likes of Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio. And today we have our first idea of the plot in an article posted on Vanity Fair.
“Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, Tarantino’s upcoming movie, according to a source who read the script, 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”.
Many of us have probably had enough of films about making films, but Tarantino, who got his form back with Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight, will probably put a fresh spin on the concept, and I can never tire of movies set in this period.
Tarantino’s ninth is expected to start shooting in LA this June.
