The first plot details have arrived for Quentin Tarantino’s ninth and still untitled film which is being referred to as “#9”.
Set in Los Angeles in 1969, the film was at first reported as a movie about Charles Manson who passed away last night. Tarantino has now clarified that “It’s not Charles Manson, it’s 1969.” But that Manson Family will be part of the story.
The plot, according to Vanity Fair, goes like this:
“Set in summer of 1969, focuses on a male TV actor who has had one hit series and is looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick – who’s also his stunt double- looking for the same thing. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate and four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as the backdrop to the main story.”
Now that Sony has snagged the rights to the film, which will reportedly have a $100 million budget more details are emerging including the desired cast. It’s no secret that Suicide Squad actress Margot Robbie is being courted for the role of Sharon Tate who was slaughtered by Manson Family members. Deadline is reporting there are two male lead roles. Currently, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio are in talks to star.
