Leonardo DiCaprio must have enjoyed his time working with Quentin Tarantino of Django Unchained, as Deadline reports that he signed on to star in the director’s upcoming Charles Manson based movie. DiCaprio has been having a self-imposed career break, as he hasn’t actually filmed a movie since The Revenant. However, with the Manson movie expected to shoot later this year, it will mark his first film since his Oscar-winning role.
Not much is known about the exact role DiCaprio will play, except that he’s an aging actor in a ‘Pulp Fiction-esque movie set in the 1969 Los Angeles during the summer of the Manson murders.’ The exacty set-up of the movie is being kept under wraps, but it is known it will deal directly with the Manson murders, as Margot Robbie has been approached to play actress Sharon Tate, the wife of director ROman Polanski, who was brutally killed while she was heavily pregnant.
Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt have also been circling the project, although it’s not known if they will sign onto the movie. The movie is due out August 2019, which will be 50 years since the Manson killings.
