Sony wins race for Quentin Tarantino’s Manson Family film, working title revealed

Deadline is reporting that Sony Pictures has won the hotly contested race to finance and distribute Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Manson Family film, for which the working title has now been revealed as #9.

Beyond the announcement and the temp title, which presumably refers to the fact that it’s the director’s ninth film (and, potentially, Manson’s fascination with Chapter 9 of the Book of Revelation and the ‘Revolution 9′ track from The Beatles’ White Album?), little else has been unveiled.

#9 will be an ensemble piece, with Tarantino having had conversations with Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Tom Cruise, as well as his well publicised desire to have Margot Robbie play the role of Sharon Tate.

Focusing on the infamous Hollywood hills murders, #9 will reportedly “explore the tragedy and cultural phenomenon of Manson, his followers and the famous victims of their cult violence.”

Quentin Tarantino’s New Film Lands at Sony

Quentin Tarantino previously made all of his movies with Harvey Weinstein, first at Miramax and then at The Weinstein Company. When it was revealed last month that Weinstein had been sexually assaulting women for decades and that he would be kicked out of his company, Tarantino decided to take his business elsewhere, which led to a bidding war among all the major studios except Disney (which doesn’t release R-rated movies). Now the bidding war is over and Deadline reports that Sony has emerged victorious. [caption id="attachment_333545" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Miramax/caption] Sony will have …

Tarantino's Strict Demands Land New Movie a Home at Sony

Tarantino's Strict Demands Land New Movie a Home at Sony
Ladies and gentleman, we have a winner. Over the past several weeks, Quentin Tarantino has been searching to give his new movie a home, simply known as #9 right now, as it's his ninth feature film. Every major studio, save for Disney, bid on the chance to finance and distribute the new movie, but Sony came out on top. While the price they paid for the privilege hasn't been disclosed, Tarantino had a very rigid set of demands and made sure this was done his way, so it's likely the deal wasn't a cheap one.

Several studios emerged as frontrunners recently, as several others dropped out of the running. Sony, Paramount and Warner Bros. were the three studios who wound up having a real shot at landing the untitled Quentin Tarantino movie. All three of them reportedly put on elaborate presentations for the director when he met with members of the studio.

Quentin Tarantino’s Latest Finds A Home At Sony; Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie And Tom Cruise Circling

It’s official: Sony Pictures has won the race to finance and distribute Quentin Tarantino‘s next movie.

Known under the rather apt working title ‘#9’, the 1960s period drama will be Tarantino’s ninth feature film, continuing a legacy that began when Reservoir Dogs launched him onto Hollywood’s radar back in ’92. It’ll also be the first to launch since the ongoing Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal, hence the change in personnel.

Indeed, Deadline’s report makes mention of a bidding war for #9, after every studio – Disney notwithstanding – in Tinsel Town expressed an interest in Quentin Tarantino’s latest venture. But the die has been cast: Sony Pictures has acquired worldwide rights for an unknown price tag, and it’s understood Tarantino is lining up a suitably stellar cast for what will be another R-rated feature.

According to Deadline’s scoop, the illustrious filmmaker has approached Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt

Sony Wins Quentin Tarantino’s New Film, Compared To ‘Pulp Fiction’ & ‘Inglourious Basterds’

What does it take to woo Quentin Tarantino and his new Charles Manson-era movie? Pretty much every studio in town rolled out the red carpet for the filmmaker, with the major studios going the distance. Warner Bros. filled out their parking lot with cars from the late 1960s, and placed their logo circa 1969 was on the marquee outside the studio. Sony took a different tack, presenting a more business oriented approach, touting their international box office strength.

Quentin Tarantino Film About Manson Family Murders Lands at Sony

Quentin Tarantino Film About Manson Family Murders Lands at Sony
Sony Pictures has emerged victorious in its quest to land worldwide rights to Quentin Tarantino’s next film. The studio was one of three finalists for distribution rights to the picture, beating out Warner Bros. and Paramount to land one of the hottest titles on the market.

Studio chief Tom Rothman pushed aggressively for the project, working with his top deputy Sanford Panitch and marketing and distribution chief Josh Greenstein to court the “Pulp Fiction” director, and selling Tarantino on the studio’s ability to market the picture and roll it out internationally.

Tarantino drove a hard bargain, however, and some studios balked at his deal terms. The picture, set in 1969, involves the Charles Manson family murders. It is rumored to have a budget of nearly $100 million and Tarantino is demanding first dollar gross, meaning he gets a taste of the studio’s pre-tax revenues. He also receives final cut. That scared

Quentin Tarantino and the Fate of ‘#9’: 6 Questions Studios Should Ask Before Signing Hollywood’s Hottest Free Agent

Quentin Tarantino and the Fate of ‘#9’: 6 Questions Studios Should Ask Before Signing Hollywood’s Hottest Free Agent
What studios are willing to bid to win the newest Tarantino movie is staggering: an upfront agreement to a $100 million production budget, first-dollar returns, and final cut. At a time when even $35 million for an original action film like “Baby Driver” is considered a gamble, this is unprecedented.

The reason is self evident: What Tarantino can do is otherwise missing from American filmmaking. He only directs his own scripts and has never made a sequel, but his films are global events. Tarantino remains one of the only directors whose original films can rake in two-to-one foreign-to-domestic box office returns.

Still, the studios’ dog-and-pony shows are odd. So many people associated with Harvey Weinstein were victims of his abuse, tainted by their association with the apparent serial rapist, or left in the wreckage at 99 Hudson Street.

Riverdale season 2 episode 6 review: Death Proof

Chris Cummins Nov 16, 2017

A timely episode of Riverdale mixes the serious with the supremely goofy. Spoilers ahead in our review...

This review contains spoilers.

See related Star Wars: Rogue One review Star Wars: Rogue One - what did you think?

2.6 Death Proof

Tonight's episode began with another obvious yet still true observation from Jughead - that we often wear masks that cover who we really are. Although this episode was written and filmed before the Harvey Weinstein/Louis Ck/et al stories broke, its impossible to view it outside of the context of that news cycle and how it gave rise to the #metoo movement. There's a lot going on in this week's episode but the most important element here is far and away the Cheryl/Nick/Veronica storyline. Last week we saw Nick St. Clair go transform from New York City-based textbook case of Affluenza to monstrous would-be rapist.

Tom Cruise in talks for Quentin Tarantino’s Manson movie

We’ve had a flurry of news relating to Quentin Tarantino’s Charles Manson movie, from the involvement of David Heyman (Gravity, Fantastic Beasts) as producer, to rumours of Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt’s involvement. Now Deadline Hollywood us reporting that Tom Cruise has been in talks for one of the two male leads roles.

With the script being shopped around to major studios following Tarantino’s decision to end his career long association with The Weinstein Company, news such as this, along with the rumour that the director is chasing Margot Robbie for Sharon Tate, will surely add a few extra zeros to the market value. Every major backer, except Disney, will be mulling over the script this week.

Deadline also play down any worries that the material will be too macabre for the mainstream, or that the directors predilection for excessive gore might be distasteful considering the subject matter,
