After his dabbles with Westerns, Quentin Tarantino is now starting to move forward on his next project – and it’s one that’s set to have a brutal horror edge to it, by all accounts.
As per The Hollywood Reporter, QT’s next movie is to be based around the infamous Manson Family murders. While no names are known for definite at this early stage, it’s believed that Tarantino is already in talks with several A-list talents about joining what should prove to be a unique new take on a truly shocking and sickening event. Early names being mooted are Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence, with the plan to start shooting next summer.
No title has been revealed just yet, although Tarantino has already finished up the screenplay and will indeed be directing, too. Harvey and Bob Weinstein will again work with Quentin to produce the picture, and the current plan is to shop the movie to studios for co-financing and co-distribution purposes in a way similar to Inglourious Basterds.
For those unfamiliar with the real-life Manson Family murders of 1969, that traumatic and tragic event saw Charles Manson initially order a group of his followers to attack a Benedict Canyon, LA residence that he believed was owned by a record producer who had rejected him. In reality, the house was occupied by director Roman Polanski’s pregnant wife, Sharon Tate. Over the space of several hours, the Manson followers would torture and kill Tate and four of her friends.
