"Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, Tarantino’s upcoming movie focuses on a male TV actor who’s had one hit series and his looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick — who’s also his stunt double — is 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 a backdrop to the main story."

Production on the film is expected to start next year, with rumours of Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Cruise in the mix to star.

A release date is obviously a way off, but it will most likely happen in 2019.
