Leonardo DiCaprio to Star in Quentin Tarantino's MANSON Picture

Leonardo DiCaprio to Star in Quentin Tarantino's MANSON Picture

According to a report from Deadline, Leonardo DiCaprio landed a role in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming movie based on the life and trial of Charles Manson, the serial killer who recently passed away in prison due to old age.

It's said DiCaprio will play an aging, out-of-work actor in the film.

The pair last worked together on 2012's Django Unchained, when DiCaprio took a turn as shady plantation owner Calvin J. Candie.

After a heated bidding war, Sony picked up the rights to the feature back in November. That day also marks the 50th anniversary of the murders of Tate and her friends by the followers of Manson.

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.

However, true to form, we reckon you'll be able to expect plenty of big names from the big-budget film, with stars including Margot Robbie and Tom Cruise rumoured to be eyed for main roles.

DiCaprio's role will be the first the actor has undertaken since his Oscar-winning performance in 2015's The Revenant.

The Sony Pictures movie is to be released on August 9, 2019, exactly 50 years after Tate and four friends were stabbed or shot dead.

The film is set in Los Angeles in the 1960s and '70s and is believed to involve the actress and model Sharon Tate, who was murdered by members of Charles Manson's notorious "family" in 1969.
