Many movies about Charles Manson and the horrific murders committed by his “family” have been made over the years. But we’re thinking this is going to be the definitive one.
THR reports tonight that Quentin Tarantino has written a script for a movie based on the infamous Manson family murders, and he’s set to direct the untitled project. Frequent Tarantino producers Harvey and Bob Weinstein are attached.
The site notes that Tarantino is currently finishing up the script, and that Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt have already been approached. Neither actor, however, is involved in any official capacity at this time.
“Script details are fuzzy but one of the story’s centers is on Sharon Tate, the actress and wife of director Roman Polanski who was murdered by Manson and his followers in 1969.”
The project is soon being shopped to studios to co-finance and co-distribute.
The shoot could begin as early as Summer 2018.
