Oliver Stone Looking to Tell the Tale of ‘Helter Skelter’?

Fans of Natural Born Killers are about to go into a frenzy as Variety is reporting that the great Oliver Stone is said to be in talks with Vincent Bugliosi, the prosecuting attorney on the Manson case, to put the book Helter Skelter onto the bigscreen. August marks the grim 40th anniversary of the murder of actress Sharon Tate, and four others at the hands of Manson Family cult members. This terrible event closed the 1960’s in a full circle — a decade that had begun with such promise. It ended in assassinations, riots, upheaval and finally mass murder in Hollywood. So far nobody has had the bad taste to make a feature movie about the Manson slayings. Television offered up two films on the killings — one back in 1970s, and another in 2004.
