Leonardo DiCaprio to Reteam with Quentin Tarantino for Charles Manson Movie

Leonardo DiCaprio to Reteam with Quentin Tarantino for Charles Manson Movie

Leonardo DiCaprio is set to reunite with his Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino, piquing the interest of every film fan who loves Oscars-worthy team-ups.

DiCaprio's kept fairly quiet since taking home the Oscar for Best Actor with The Revenant in 2015, and while he did promote his documentary Before the Flood, it will be interesting to see if this untitled film will mark the actor's first movie in four years or if the gangster film The Black Hand, which has DiCaprio set to star, will be his new picture. Evidently though, DiCaprio has landed one of the two major male roles that Tom Cruise was said to be circling at one point.

'Because he's got his own unique, specific style, and when you see a Quentin Tarantino movie, you know it'.

The last time Leonardo and the two-time Oscar victor collaborated was in 2012 on Tarantino's critically-acclaimed western, which amassed $425.4M at the worldwide box office.

Plot details for the unnamed Manson film are still thin on the ground at this stage, but it's thought to be a 1969-set ensemble flick that in some way details the Manson family murders - which were orchestrated by Charles Manson, one of the most widely-known serial killers of all time.

The actor is apparently in talks to star in the as-yet-unnamed project, which will be the director's ninth feature film.

The movie will be released by Sony, which nabbed the project following a bidding war in the wake of Harvey Weinstein's firing from The Weinstein Company.

Sony declined to comment on the report.

However, in the same way that InglouriousBasterds wasn't just a movie about Hitler, Tarantino's movie isn't thought to be focused exclusively around Manson or Tate. Cruise, Robbie, and DiCaprio aren't the only big names linked to Tarantino's new film, either.

Tarantino's now untitled ninth feature film now has a release date of August 9, 2019.
