    Default Tarantino's next film will be about the Manson murders

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hea...urders-1020165

    The Summer of Love ended tragically, with seven murders all meant to start a race war, all because of a Beatles song (well not really, but kind of) . The story of the Manson family has always been so interesting simply because of how manipulative Charles Manson was and how he was able to seduce so many people to his ideals.

    Margot Robbie, Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, and Samuel L Jackson are all in talks to star. Robbie and Lawrence are both being considered for the role of Sharon Tate. I could see Pitt being considered for the role of Terry Melcher, the Beach Boys producer whom Manson had an obsession with

    The murder of Sharon Tate always perplexed and interested me due to the fact that she predicted the exact details of her murder 2 years before it occurred in a dream, while sleeping in the house of Jay Sebring, her friend and Hollywood hairstylist who was killed along side her.

    Needless to say I can't wait to see how Tarantino tells this story.

    Very exciting news. IMHO, casting the right person for Manson will be key. He's someone that I have clear picture of in my mind, as I think many do. He's very idiosyncratic and you have to balance all of his range of traits. You really need a perfect casting there and that will be hard if Quentin already doesn't have someone in mind, someone perhaps already aware of their intended casting.

    I kinda think a cult leader like Manson needs to have a compelling scene-stealing performance of him. To do otherwise would be like doing a Jim Jones film that does little to convince you of why people would fall for a cult leader like Jones.

    So Margot Robbie does a movie about Tonya Harding and is now going to do a Manson movie (like that has never been done before). What ever happened to the
    Gotham City Sirens movie Robbie and David Ayer were going to make? Did they give up on that idea?

    That project was a done deal long ago, it's been in development for months. Ayer just got booted from the Scarface remake so now his full attention is on GCS.

    I'm interested to see who they'll get to play Manson. All film portrayals of him have been unimpressive(imo).

    I would take Margot over Lawrence. Margot can play that innocence a bit better than J-Law. I wonder if QT is going to consult with Polanski about the murders.

    Hell, I wonder if he's going to consult with Manson about the murders.

    Intriguing. It's weird imagining Tarantino doing a movie about real people. No, Hitler doesn't count.

    It doesn't say she's going to do this one.
    It says she met with Tarantino.

    And if he wants her that badly he's going to have to shoot his movie when she has the time to be in it.

    Thank you, Lord and the Baby Jesus!!! *cough*
    Is "Helter Skelter" worth a watch/read?

    Have you guys enjoyed Fincher's Zodiac?

    I'm a late bloomer when it comes to Tarrantino. My favourites are Django (is the Vertigo comic worth a read?), Inglorious Basterds and Jackie Brown (excellent cast)

    Another great date movie.
    When you lose the rhythm of the drumbeat of god, you are lost from the peace and rhythm of life.

    Depends on your date. If she disagrees with Tarrantino you know she's not marriage material

    Him doing a horror thriller since Grindhouse and From Dusk Till Dawn? sounds great.
