Leonardo DiCaprio

Quentin made the clear distinction to Indie Wire that the film is 'not Charles Manson, it's 1969.' Suggesting the plot would centre on what we assume is Leo's character and the era in Hollywood with the Manson murders playing out as a secondary storyline.

Margot Robbie has already signed on to play one of the victims, actress Sharon Tate, who was eight months pregnant and married to director Roman Polanski.

The plot line is being kept under wraps but U.S. media reports it is a pulp fiction movie set around the brutal Charles Manson murders in Los Angeles in the 1960s.

DiCaprio previously worked with Tarantino in Western slave-themed film Django Unchained (2012) which also earned rave reviews and several nominations at various awards shows. This also marks Tarantino's first film at Sony in the United States (the studio distributed Django internationally), which outbid other studios for the screenplay after Tarantino parted ways with The Weinstein Company following the end to Tarantino's decades-long relationship with the Weinstein brothers, which began when they picked up Tarantino's first finished film, Reservoir Dogs, for distribution at Miramax in 1992.
