The Manson Family (Tarantino / Pitt / Lawrence)

Post by WyldeMan on 7/11/2017, 10:18 pm

Quentin Tarantino is quietly starting to put together his latest project, and is talking to A-list actors for what is promising to be a unique take on the Manson Family murders.

The project, whose title is unknown, was written by Tarantino, who would also direct. Harvey and Bob Weinstein, who have produced and executive produced the previous Tarantino films, are involved, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

WME is said to be in the early stages of shopping the project to studios to co-finance and co-distribute the venture. The move apes the way Tarantino and the Weinsteins made the filmmaker’s 2009 movie Inglourious Basterds, which had Universal Studios as a financial and distributing partner.

Sources say that Tarantino is putting the finishing touches on the script and that Brad Pitt, who worked with the filmmaker on Basterds, and Jennifer Lawrence have been approached. Studios could receive the package after Labor Day, according to one source. The plan is to shoot in 2018, possibly in the summer.

Script details are fuzzy but one of the stories centers on Sharon Tate, the actress and wife of director Roman Polanski who was murdered by Manson and his followers in 1969.

Manson had ordered a group of his followers to attack the inhabitants of a house in the Benedict Canyon part of Los Angeles, believing it was owned by a record producer who earlier had rejected him.

Over the course of several hours on the night of Aug. 8, the four followers, using guns and knives, brutally killed Tate, who was eight months pregnant, and four other occupants.

In 1971, Manson and certain members of his crew were sentenced to life imprisonment for these and several other murders committed that summer.

If the Manson-Tate project does become Tarantino’s next film, it becomes unique in that it will be his first movie to be based on true events. Tarantino has molded his career into taking his favorite genres such as crime, Westerns and blaxploitation and elevating them to A-list status while also paying homage to them.

He also has proven to be able to create strong and memorable female roles, from the title character in Jackie Brown to the Bride in Kill Bill to the female characters on display in Death Proof.

Tate could be the latest to join that list.

Any actor involvement is on the early side, and one insider said that Lawrence is not considering the Tate role.

Tarantino takes on the Manson Family?!?! That is not a subject I ever expected him to touch.

If Pitt can return to his Kalifornia/Seven/Fight Club roots he might actually make a film I'd be excited to see again. Though I'm fairly certain there isn't much of a chance that QT wants Pitt for the Manson role, he's gotta be a Detective.

Honestly, I kind of immediately went to Walton Goggins when I saw the names, Tarantino and Manson. I think he'd own the role, even if he doesn't look like Charlie.

QT also wanted Jennifer Lawrence for Daisy Domergue in Hateful Eight, I believe he even wrote that role for her so I can't imagine he wouldn't make her Susan Atkins and give JLaw her first villainous role and if she plays Sexy Sadie that won't be a problem, BITCH WAS CRAZY!

And I'd go more Sienna Miller for Sharon Tate than JLaw.

This will be interesting. Goggins would be a great Manson, but I really think John Hawkes has the right look, and talent - but may be a bit too old.

Pitt I don't care for.

I just read that Tarantino has also talked with Margot Robbie for Tate. Much better than JLaw.

John Hawkes! I love the way you think and he's worked with Tarantino before going all the way back to From Dusk. Brilliant choice!

Margot Robbie for Tate?!?! WOW....... Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked I LOVE THAT CHOICE.

Now I can't wait to see who Sam Jackson and Michael Madsen will inevitably play.

Wish he would have picked something else. I don't understand why anyone would want to see a Manson story, any version. They just made a TV show.

I was really excited for that 30's Aussie gangster film he talked about a few years ago but apparently that's no longer in the cards.
