Quentin Tarantino likes to take his time to ensure he gets to make the movie he wants in the way he wants. It means that since Reservoir Dogs in 1992, we’ve only had 9 movies from him the the last quarter of a century.
Now he’s decided what he wants his 10th feature film to be, and it’ll be about the Manson Family Murders. THR first reported the news, saying it will be a unique take on the imfamous killings. Not a vast amount is known about the specifics of the movie, although it’s said, ‘One of the stories centers on Sharon Tate, the actress and wife of director Roman Polanski who was murdered by Manson and his followers in 1969.
‘Manson had ordered a group of his followers to attack the inhabitants of a house in the Benedict Canyon part of Los Angeles, believing it was owned by a record producer who earlier had rejected him. Over the course of several hours on the night of Aug. 8, the four followers, using guns and knives, brutally killed Tate, who was eight months pregnant, and four other occupants.
‘In 1971, Manson and certain members of his crew were sentenced to life imprisonment for these and several other murders committed that summer.’
Tarantino is apparently already meeting actors about the project, with the likes of Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence and Margot Robbie all said to be in the mix. We’ll have to wait a while to see the movie though, as it’s not likely to shoot until summer 2018.
