Quentin Tarantino's next film is reportedly about Charles Manson

Four of his followers murdered Tate who was eight months pregnant at the time, as well as four other people in the house.

The legendary director of Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained, Reservoir Dogs, and many others will reportedly be helming a movie surrounding the infamous killer and cult-like leader, Charles Manson. Tarantino wrote and will also direct the film, with Harvey and Bob Weinstein invilved in some capacity, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Things are still pretty early for Tarantino's next movie.

Charles Manson was imprisoned in 1971, he is still an inmate of the LA prison.

Sources state that Tarantino has approached a handful of A-listers, including Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence, to star.

He has also declared that he would retire after making ten films - the Manson story would be his ninth. Like 2009's Inglorious Bastards, which saw Universal co-finance and co- distribute, the company is looking for more of the same here.

The potential film remains untitled as of yet but will begin shooting net year. However, casting Brad Pitt might not be as hard considering he already starred in Inglorious Basterds and just might be down for starring in another Tarantino flick. Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Jennifer Lawrence are a few of the actors that have been rumored to star in the project.

This will be Tarantino's first project that is based on true events. Like Basterds, the unfortunate relationship between Hollywood and this concept would provide Tarantino with the opportunity to once again explore motifs related to film, media, and propaganda.

Apparently, a script is already in the works and it includes scenes featuring Sharon Tate, Roman Polanski's tragic late wife who fell victim to the Manson cult.
