After months of rumors, Leonardo DiCaprio
is now confirmed to be reuniting with Quentin Tarantino
for his upcoming movie set around the Manson family murders. Precisely what this film is about remains a mystery, as Tarantino has confusingly said that it’s not actually about the Manson murders, despite Manson victim Sharon Tate
reportedly playing a central role in the narrative (and the film releasing on August 9th, the date she was killed).
Furthermore, the director has famously said he’ll only ever helm ten movies in his career, and as this will be his ninth, the film is currently being referred to as #9 in promotional circles. Whatever the content of it is, it’s recently kicked off an almighty bidding war amongst studios – unsurprisingly.
All of Tarantino’s past work has been distributed by The Weinstein Company
and, well…nobody wants that guy’s name stuck on the front of their movie these days,
