Quentin Tarantino‘s untitled Charles Manson film has had our curiosity since its announcement in July of 2017, but now it has our attention. Per Deadline, the Oscar-winning Leonardo DiCaprio has agreed to star in the film, which will be his first role since winning Best Actor for The Revenant, and his second film with Tarantino after appearing in 2012’s Django Unchained.

The unnamed film was recently picked up by Sony and is eyeing August 9, 2019 release date- coinciding with the 50th anniversary of Sharon Tate’s murder at the hands of the Manson family. Tarantino has approached Oscar hopeful Margot Robbie for the role of Tate, with Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise circling the project as well.

Leonardo DiCaprio is set to play an aging actor, but the story is largely being kept under wraps. All that’s known so far is that it will be a Pulp Fiction-esque production, set in 1969 Los Angeles during the summer of the Manson murders.

Though details are scarce, the film is shaping up to be a star-studded effort. Are you looking forward to it?
