Margot Robbie to play Sharon Tate in Tarantino's Manson film

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is a Pulp Fiction-style tapestry in 1969; Tarantino will depict the hippie culture around the infamous killing-spree ordered by Charles Manson, including the Murder of Tate.

Nothing further to report at this time, but we're keeping our ear to the ground for updates. The Australian beauty had always been rumored being eyed for the said role in "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood", and now Deadline reports that talks are underway to make it happen. Tate is indeed a character in the new film, as Rick Dalton's next door neighbour.

While Tarantino's most recent statement mentions Sharon Tate as a player in the movie, Tarantino previously said that the film would not center on Charles Manson, but on the year 1969.

DiCaprio will play Rick Dalton, a fictional fading Western TV star, while Pitt will play Cliff Booth, Dalton's "longtime stunt double", according to Deadline. She'll also be reuniting with her Wolf of Wall Street movie-husband Leonardo DiCaprio. I'm very excited to tell this story of an L.A., and a Hollywood that don't exist anymore. "And I couldn't be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff".

The movie is set to be released on August 9, 2019.

Tate's real-life sister, Debra, heavily criticised Lawrence's rumoured involvement, saying the Red Sparrow star wasn't "pretty enough" to play her sister.

In November, Tarantino chose Sony as the distributor for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood". Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt are already confirmed, and if Robbie joins the killer lineup she'll be playing the role of Tate.
