Leonardo DiCaprio will reunite with filmmaker Quentin Tarantino to star in the untitled Charles Manson movie, an individual with knowledge of the project tells TheWrap. The movie is being developed at Sony Pictures, which has set August 9, 2019 as its release date to mark the 50th anniversary of the murder of Tate. On top of Brad Pitt, who is reportedly "circling" the project, Deadline is now reporting that Tarantino's Django Unchained co-star Leonardo DiCaprio has been tapped.

The pair previously worked together on the phenomenally popular, The Wolf of Wall Street. The murder of Tate and her four friends somehow factors into the plot, which has been teased as resembling the multi-narrative structure of "Pulp Fiction".

However, true to form, we reckon you'll be able to expect plenty of big names from the big-budget film, with stars including Margot Robbie and Tom Cruise rumoured to be eyed for main roles. The Academy Award-winning actor is in talks to star in the now untitled project about Charles Manson and the Manson family murders.

Bannon to Testify Before House Intelligence Committee Next Week
Trump has been asking allies to choose between him and Bannon, and the choice among most has been clear . The president told The Wall Street Journal in an interview that he felt "betrayed" by Bannon's comments.

The movie will be Leonardo's first movie since his role in The Revenant which won him his first Academy Award.

Tarantino has obviously cast DiCaprio before - as the frothing slave owner Calvin Candie in the 2012 film Django Unchained - but that wasn't the first film he wanted DiCaprio for.

Sony declined to comment on the report.
