DiCaprio to star in Tarantino's Manson movie

The movie, which will be the first for Tarantino without his longtime producer-distributor Harvey Weinstein, does not yet have a cast.

Leonardo DiCaprio has accepted a starring role in Quentin Tarantino's ninth film as director, and is expected to close the deal soon, according to Deadline. It was widely reported that Tarantino had initially wanted DiCaprio to play Col. Hans Landa in Inglourious Basterds.

The pair last worked together on 2012's Django Unchained, when DiCaprio took a turn as shady plantation owner Calvin J. Candie.

Growth in the manufacturing component of the index touched 10.2% in November, up from 2.47% in the previous month. The Dollar is down over half a percent against most pairs after the release of inflation data for December.


Sony then picked up the rights for the feature film back in November, following a heated bidding war.

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.

Deadline and Variety said that Australian actress Margot Robbie has been asked to play Sharon Tate.

Bortles broke a few runs on scrambles, but the designed option plays really paved the way for the Jaguars only touchdown drive. The fourth-year pro averaged just 3.8 yards per attempt and missed receivers on routine throws over and over.


The movie will be Leonardo's first movie since his role in The Revenant which won him his first Academy Award.

Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt are also said to be in talks for two major roles in the film while a part has also been written for Al Pacino, who is yet to sign on. After much buzz about the project, rumored to have a wider appeal than Tarantino's previous effort, The Hateful Eight, Sony Pictures emerged the victor, granting the film a $100 million budget and a prime slot in the summer schedule.

The movie opens August 9, 2019 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Tate's murder.
