Quentin Tarantino Is Reportedly Working On A 'Unique' Take On The Manson Family Murders

Quentin Tarantino has made some of the greatest cult films ever - Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill to name a few.

It has reached the point when his past work is so revered and loved that anything he does from now on will be met with great anticipation and presumably raving reviews.

His last big title to hit cinemas was The Hateful Eight, which endured a rough creation after the website Gawker leaked a copy of the script. After the script was released online, Tarantino told the media that the film would be scrapped and instead made into a novel.

Luckily it did still make it to the big screen, but now his next project is on the way, The Hollywood Reporter claims.

The project is still in its early stages, however, a source claims that Tarantino has more or less written the script and will direct while working with Harvey and Bob Weinstein, who have produced and executive produced the previous Tarantino films.

The Hollywood Reporter claims that sources have revealed that Brad Pitt, who has previously worked with Tarantino on Inglourious Basterds, and Jennifer Lawrence have been approached with regards to a role in the film.

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.

Tarantino's rumoured film, which is yet to have a title, is reported to be based around Tate, whose murder took place on August 9, 1969.

Manson directed 'family' members Charles 'Tex' Watson, Linda Kasabian, Susan Atkins and Patricia Krenwinkel to go to 10050 Cielo Drive, the home of Sharon Tate and director Roman Polanski, and kill everyone there.

They killed all five people at the property, including Sharon Tate, who was eight-and-a-half months pregnant, Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger, Wojciech Frykowski and Steven Parent.
