Leonardo DiCaprio

Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio has officially signed on for Quentin Tarantino‘s next film, according to Deadline.

While the plot details are still being held firmly under wraps, Tarantino has repeatedly stated that the film is not, in fact, devoted to Charles Manson and his story. He says that it is instead a film about the totality of 1969, with the infamous murders of Sharon Tate, Jay Sebring and others having some part in the film. He has not confirmed how much of the film will be dedicated to Sharon Tate’s story. The writer/director has also said that he intends to present the story in a similar fashion to his 1994 hit film, “Pulp Fiction.”

The film will, however, be released on the 50th anniversary of the Tate/LaBianca murders, August 9, 2019.

There is no word yet on DiCaprio’s role in the film, and the details of his contract are still being finalized. It is his first film since winning the Academy Award for “The Revenant.”

DiCaprio’s co-stars have also not been revealed. Margot Robbie recently stated that she has been asked to star in the film, but there is no confirmation on whether she will.
