Margot and Brad to team up in film

Reports out of the U.S. allege the iconic director has set his sights on Australian beauty Margot Robbie for the role of Sharon Tate, the late wife of French-Polish film director Roman Polanski.

Over the course of several hours in the early hours of August 8th, 1969, the four followers, using guns and knives, horrifically killed Tate, who was 8 months pregnant at the time, along with four other occupants.

Sources say that Tarantino is putting the finishing touches on the script and that Brad Pitt, who worked with the filmmaker on Basterds, and Jennifer Lawrence have been approached. His last two films, 2015's "The Hateful Eight" and 2013's "Django Unchained", both premiered on Christmas. While the director has reportedly already written this project, he plans on directing the movie soon.

Looks like Quentin Tarantino is going back to the history books.

Charles Manson infamously interpreted The Beatles song "Helter Skelter" as a secret message for Manson and followers to "rise up", and start a race war. Brad Pitt and Samuel L Jackson are also being linked with roles in the film, which will begin shooting next year. Harvey and Bob Weinstein are involved in the project.

Quentin Tarantino's next project may be his most gruesome yet. The director is known for preferring to tell his own stories that exist in their own cinematic Universe and as such, having him make a film about the Manson murders will mark a detour from this approach. THR's report doesn't mention this aspect of the story being part of Tarantino's script, but given the large role music has played in his previous films, it'd be unusual if he chose to ignore it. Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games, American Hustle) would also be of the party, but his role is so far unknown.

Quentin Tarantino has apparently found the subject he wants to cover for his next film.
