Leonardo DiCaprio to Star in Quentin Tarantino's Manson Movie

The movie, which will be the first for Tarantino without his longtime producer-distributor Harvey Weinstein, does not yet have a cast.

Leonardo DiCaprio will reteam with his Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino for his "Pulp Fiction-esque" ninth feature centered around the Charles Manson murders in Hollywood back in 1969. However, confirmation that Leonardo DiCaprio has taken a lead role in his next film is just cream on the strudel.

DiCaprio's exact role isn't known yet, aside from the detail that he'll play an aging actor, according to Deadline. Robbie is in the Oscar conversation this year for her performance in I, Tonya and previously worked with DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street.

The last time Leonardo and the two-time Oscar victor collaborated was in 2012 on Tarantino's critically-acclaimed western, which amassed $425.4M at the worldwide box office. He had been serving a life sentence for ordering the murders of nine people including actress Sharon Tate.

DiCaprio's role will be the first the actor has undertaken since his Oscar-winning performance in 2015's The Revenant. The upcoming Manson film will potentially become a star-studded movie, as Margot Robbie, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Samuel L. Jackson and Jennifer Lawrence have reportedly been approached for roles in the film.

The release date coincides with the 50th anniversary of Tate's murder at the hands of the Manson family.
