Tarantino has finished the script for his next movie, believed to be based around the Manson Family murders.

The director has previously worked with Miramax or The Weinstein Company on all of his feature films, but is breaking away following recent sexual assault allegations against co-founder Harvey Weinstein.

The budget for this new film is said to be in the range of Django Unchained, which was made for $100 million (£76m).

Deadline has suggested Tarantino has made offers to Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt for parts, and that he has written characters with Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio in mind.

As it has yet to be given an official title, the movie is being referred to as #9 because it's Tarantino's ninth film.

The bad news for any of his fans is that filming on the movie isn't expected to begin until mid-2018 for a 2019 release.

Charles Manson was perhaps one of the most well-known killers of all time - however, he never actually killed anyone. Instead he orchestrated the killings of seven people, including film star Sharon Tate who was pregnant at the time.

The leader of the notorious 'Manson family' influenced his followers to carry out the murders for him and he was originally sentenced to the death penalty in 1971. But when California abolished the death penalty in 1972, this was reduced to life in prison.

The film is reported to be based around Tate, whose murder took place on 9 August 1969, although according to the latest information it's not just about the murder. Similarly, it wouldn't be untrue to describe Inglourious Basterds as a movie about Hitler, but there's a lot more going on than just that.
