The Shape of Water

Leonardo DiCaprio To Star In Quentin Tarantino's New Movie

After months of rumors, Leonardo DiCaprio is now confirmed to be reuniting with Quentin Tarantino for his upcoming movie set around the Manson family murders.

The yet-unnamed film, already slated for release on August 9, 2019, will center around cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson. On top of Brad Pitt, who is reportedly "circling" the project, Deadline is now reporting that Tarantino's Django Unchained co-star Leonardo DiCaprio has been tapped. Variety reports that the structure will be similar to Pulp Fiction's with an ensemble approach. Margot Robbie, meanwhile, is being eyed for the role of Sharon Tate.

DiCaprio will play "an aging actor" evidently, though whether this is a fictional character created specifically for the story or an actual aging actor from 1969 is unknown. That day also marks the 50th anniversary of the murders of Tate and her friends by the followers of Manson.

He said the hospital has a responsibility to address the "social needs" of patients, working with outside agencies. It confirmed that the woman was discharged Tuesday night from the emergency department of its Midtown campus.

The film is set in Los Angeles in the 1960s and '70s and is believed to involve the actress and model Sharon Tate, who was murdered by members of Charles Manson's notorious "family" in 1969. DiCaprio previously played a villain in Tarantino's 2012 movie Django Unchained.

Sony declined to comment on the most recent casting news. Should DiCaprio join the project, it will be his first film since starring in 2015's "The Revenant" directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu which earned him a Best Actor award at the 2016 Oscars.
