Quentin Tarantino's Manson murders film lands grisly release date

Quentin Tarantino to release Charles Manson movie on 50th anniversary of murders

Quentin Tarantino to release Charles Manson movie on 50th anniversary of murders

Sony has dated Quentin Tarantino's ninth untitled directorial - which Deadline has been consistently breaking the exclusive news about - for August 9, 2019.

The so-called Manson Family murdered Tate (then eight-and-a-half months pregnant) and four others at the home the actress shared with director husband Roman Polanski. She was murdered by Charles Manson in California, 1969.

Manson "family" members also murdered a married couple, supermarket executive Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary the day after the Tate murders in August, 1969.

Speculation has been rife as to what exactly Tarantino is up to for his ninth* feature, with the rumoured cast including heavyweight names such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Margot Robbie.

This is the first film Tarantino is making after severing his relationship with former Miramax and The Weinstein Company head Harvey Weinstein following the dozens of sexual harassment and assault accusations plaguing the once powerful mogul.

Sony previously handled overseas on Tarantino's Django Unchained and took that to a whopping $262.6M or 62% of its $425.3M worldwide box office. Charles Manson, who had been behind bars since 1971, died last month (Nov17), aged 83.

A Redditor speculates that this film could borrow elements from the script of Kill Bill 3, especially the part where Tate, played by Robbie, survives the murder attempt and gets revenge on the Manson Family.
