As always, there are a handful of Charles Manson-related projects in the works right now, with Quentin Tarantino working on a film that’s set during the time of the infamous Manson Family murders and American Psycho director Mary Harron set to direct Matt Smith as Manson in Charlie Says. Another project will focus on victim Sharon Tate.
Deadline reports that Hilary Duff has signed on to play Sharon Tate in Skyline’s The Haunting of Sharon Tate, described as a psychological horror film.
“The film, written and directed by Daniel Farrands, takes a look at the last days leading up to Tate’s murder from her point of view. The plot is inspired by an actual quote from Tate, from an interview published a year before her death, wherein she reveals having dreams about ghosts haunting her house and foreseeing her own death at the hands of a satanic cult.”
Lucas Jarach and Eric Brenner are producing, with Jim Jacobsen and Jorge Garcia Castro executive producing.
