I still cannot get over how Leonardo Dicaprio was snubbed an Oscar nomination for his supporting role in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. In that movie, we saw a darker side of DiCaprio’s talent, as he literally bled for the role of slave owner Calvin Candie. Thankfully the voters finally gave DiCaprio his Oscar almost two years ago. Since then, there’s been little word on what movie the actor will star in next, but as it turns out a reunion with Tarantino is officially happening. The details are as follows…
Set against the backdrop of the Manson Murders in 1969, the film will follow an aging actor (DiCaprio) in a Pulp Fiction-style tale. While the Manson angle won’t be the focus, Tarantino has been talking to Margot Robbie about playing Sharon Tate and both Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt have been circling the movie. (via. Empire)
This will officially be Tarantino’s ninth film, as the iconic director has made it known that he will likely stop making films after number ten. It looks as if he’s assembling a cast of A-list performers, with DiCaprio & Robbie once again taking the lead, which for anyone who’s seen The Wolf of Wall Street, is a very good thing!
Cameras start rolling later this year for what’ll likely be a 2019 release.
