Quentin Tarantino Has Revealed More Information About His Upcoming Film

" In other words, Tarantino means his new film to be a larger tapestry of 1969 - and everything that was going on culturally at the time - with Manson only figuring as one thread".

Over the weekend, Quentin Tarantino appeared (presumably by invitation, though it's very fun to imagine him suddenly appearing in a cloud of smoke) at an awards-season brunch held on behalf of Sofia Coppola's The Beguiled, where the director offered a quick update of sorts in regards to his next project, which has always been rumored to revolve around the Manson Family murders. Earlier this year, it was reported that Tarantino's ninth feature would revolve around the Manson family murders, which included the slaying of actress Sharon Tate and supermarket executive Leno LaBianca on a two-night killing spree in August 1969. However, according to the latest information, it's not focused exclusively around Manson, in the same way as Inglourious Basterds (watch the trailer above) is not just a movie about Hitler.

This all makes sense, of course.

"It's not Charles Manson, it's 1969."

And while the actions of Charles Manson and his murderous followers have kept true crime writers employed for almost half a century, the people and places that orbited him are just as fascinating. But as for who that might be, at this point Tarantino says: "I don't know". Before he was recognized as a psychopath and locked away in prison, Manson ran in a number of Hollywood circles, brushing shoulders with movie stars and rock stars and creating a dense web worth exploring. Though many were satisfied by the thought of Hitler getting his just desserts in this very direct and personal way, some academics took Tarantino to task for playing fast-and-loose with the facts of history, complaining that this sort of revisionism - even if it isn't meant to be taken entirely seriously - only contributes to our society's lack of historical literacy.

But first, the film needs to find a distributor. After parting ways with The Weinstein Company following the accusations of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein, Tarantino began shopping his script around to various studios.

Deadline has suggested Tarantino has made offers to Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt for parts, and that he has written characters with Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio in mind.
