Quentin Tarantino is Also Looking to Cast Al Pacino in His Manson Family Movie

For some reason, I never really imagined that Quentin Tarantino would ever work with Al Pacino but it looks like there's a chance that it might happen. According to Variety, the director is interested in casting the actor in his upcoming ninth film that is set in 1969.

Last week it was announced that Leonardo DiCaprio was officially cast in the film as an actor character in the story, and the director has also asked Margot Robbie to take on the role of Sharon Tate, but she has yet to accept the offer. He's also looked at casting Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in another lead male role.

The untitled film is described as being a Pulp Fiction-esque type movie set in the 1969 Los Angeles during the summer of the Manson murders. According to a previous report, the story focuses on "a male TV actor who’s had one hit

Here are the scraps of information we've been able to pull together so far: The Production Team The drama, which would be his follow-up to 2015's The Hateful Eight, is still untitled, but a source confirmed that Tarantino has already penned the script for Sony and will direct.

Yes, we know — Quentin Tarantino‘s Charles Manson movie, isn’t actually a Charles Manson movie. “It’s not Charles Manson, it’s 1969,” the director said about his Los Angeles-set movie, which is said to have a vibe somewhere along the same lines as “Pulp Fiction” and “Inglourious Basterds.” Big stars have been said to be under consideration for months, and now the first official name is on board.

Leonardo DiCaprio Will Star in Quentin Tarantino's Manson Era Movie

Leonardo DiCaprio Will Star in Quentin Tarantino's Manson Era Movie
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio is set to reunite with director Quentin Tarantino for his upcoming Manson Movie. As Tarantino tells it, the movie isn't actually about the Manson murders that took place in Los Angeles in the late 60s, but since he hasn't released any actual story details, that's about the only way we can identify it. For now at least. In any case, it's being reported that DiCaprio is officially in talks to star in the movie, which was rumored but is now official. Though, the deal hasn't actually closed yet, but it is expected to close soon.

Quentin Tarantino's new movie, which is only being referred to as #9 (since it's his ninth movie), is a high-profile project that became the subject of a massive bidding war in Hollywood late last year. Quentin Tarantino has made all of his previous movies for The Weinstein Company. However, after the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke,

Ziad Doueiri, whose Hollywood credentials include being a cameraman for most of Quentin Tarantino's earlier films (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown), has made several films in his native Lebanon (West Beirut, The Attack, Lila Says).

‘The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’ Is A Frustrating Showcase For Darren Criss [Review]

There’s nothing intrinsically wrong with conventional, chronological cinematic storytelling, nor is there anything fundamentally good about non-linear structures in film. There must be a good reason to alter a story’s chronology, be it to convey a character’s subjective perception of events (“Memento”), to make a reveal at the most opportune moment (“The Usual Suspects”), or simply because you are Quentin Tarantino (“Pulp Fiction”).

Kumail Nanjiana, Emily Gordon Discuss Possible ‘Big Sick’ Sequel

Kumail Nanjiana, Emily Gordon Discuss Possible ‘Big Sick’ Sequel
Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon say there are no plans in the works for a sequel to “The Big Sick” — but did not dismiss the idea out of hand, either.

The couple, who served wrote the movie’s script based on their real-life relationship from a decade ago, admitted Saturday on the red carpet for the Film Independent brunch at Boa Steakhouse that the idea had been broached recently — by others affiliated with “The Big Sick” during the previous day’s AFI Awards.

“Yesterday, some of the people involved, I won’t say who, were saying, ‘You guys need to do something about this,'” Nanjiani said. “That’s really the first serious conversations that anybody’s had with us.”

Gordon, who’s portrayed by Zoe Kazan in the film, stressed that nothing’s imminent, adding, “We need to take a little bit of a break from telling such a personal story.”

Nanjiani agreed.

In praise of Gary Oldman’s performance in True Romance

Sean Wilson looks back at one of the most memorable roles undertaken by the Darkest Hour star, Gary Oldman

On the eve of Darkest Hour, the critically acclaimed new Winston Churchill biopic, the headlines have all been shrieking one thing: isn’t Gary Oldman an extraordinarily versatile actor?

Well, yes, but anyone who has followed Oldman’s career from the 1980s onwards will already know this. Describing him as one of the most transformative and brilliant actors on the planet is as plaintive as saying the sky is blue. This is a man who has played everyone from Sid Vicious to Joe Orton, Lee Harvey Oswald to Dracula and Beethoven.

Not that this ought to undersell his Churchill performance: typically unrecognisable under convincing latex Oldman digs into the complex heart of this roaring lion, bringing to life a British icon wracked by doubt and anger on the eve of World War II.

Harvey Weinstein Will Not Be in Los Angeles for Golden Globes Despite Rumors

Harvey Weinstein Will Not Be in Los Angeles for Golden Globes Despite Rumors
Harvey Weinstein will not be in Los Angeles for the Golden Globe Awards this weekend, despite rumors to the contrary.

A representative for the disgraced Hollywood mogul confirmed his whereabouts to People, saying the producer is still in Arizona, where he is currently seeking treatment.

Rumors about Weinstein’s whereabouts began after actress Rosanna Arquette shared a message on social media on Thursday, claiming that the producer was staying in the same Beverly Hills hotel where the Golden Globe press events were behind held.

The Best Original Screenplay Oscar Winners of the 21st Century Ranked, From ‘Her’ to ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’

The Best Original Screenplay Oscar Winners of the 21st Century Ranked, From ‘Her’ to ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’
Compare the movies that have won Best Picture at the Academy Awards to those that have taken home Best Original Screenplay and you’ll find that, as often as not, the latter is the more impressive list. Sometimes they overlap, but when they don’t — “Pulp Fiction” and “Forrest Gump,” “Talk to Her” and “Chicago,” “Melvin and Howard” and “Ordinary People” — it almost feels like a tacit admission that the Academy is throwing a bone to the film that’ll be more fondly remembered than the ultimate winner.

It only makes sense, then, that any number of great filmmakers have been honored in this category without ever winning Best Director or Picture: Quentin Tarantino, Sofia Coppola, Spike Jonze. These wordsmiths are worth celebrating, and these are the best — and worst — of them since 2000.

It likely comes as little surprise that Paul Haggis’ surprise Best Picture winner takes last place on this list,

Film Review: ‘Bleeding Steel’

Film Review: ‘Bleeding Steel’
The latest effort to give Chinese chopsocky action a sci-fi makeover, “Bleeding Heart” stars Jackie Chan as a special agent trying to protect his daughter from biotech mutants. Efficiently directed by Leo Zhang, the film features all the zesty fights, slick effects and goofy slapstick one expects from a Jackie Chan family movie, while glossy production values, a snappy beat and composer Peng Fei’s deafening score mimic that of a Hollywood movie, though the film’s corny cyberpunk pastiche appeals exclusively to kids.

Coming third in domestic B.O. behind Feng Xiaogang’s ’70s epic “Youth” and Chen Kaige’s supernatural fantasy “Legend of the Demon Cat,” the film — co-written by Zhang, Cui Siwei and Xiaohou Yunshan (who also has a bland supporting role) — can expect Chan’s international fan base to contribute to more earnings when it releases abroad, with particular appeal in Australia, since a good portion was shot in Sydney.

A Cool True Story about Vincent Vega’s 1964 Chevy Malibu in “Pulp Fiction”

I’m not sure how cool you can consider the true story of Vincent Vega’s 1964 Chevy Malibu from Pulp Fiction is but it’s definitely odd. The car never belonged to John Travolta as you might have already guessed, but it did belong to the director Quentin Tarantino. Apparently the car was stolen in 1994 and the director never found out who took it or what had happened to it until 2013. The car was found by a pair of cops that had noticed a couple of guys stripping it during one of their patrols. Eventually they found out that the

‘Jackie Brown’ at 20: Revisiting Quentin Tarantino’s Best and Most Underrated Movie
Pulp Fiction (’94) changed the face of cinema forever. Though that’s become something of a clichéd declaration amongst cinephiles, the statement nonetheless contains an immeasurable volume of truth. While Quentin Tarantino’s first completed feature, Reservoir Dogs (’92), underperformed in the United States – its foulmouthed, hyper-violent tendencies contributing to a notorious reputation and cult following […]

‘Jackie Brown’ at 20: Pam Grier Has a Better Idea for an Ending

‘Jackie Brown’ at 20: Pam Grier Has a Better Idea for an Ending
Quentin Tarantino’s acclaimed crime thriller “Jackie Brown,” which celebrates its 20th anniversary on Christmas Day, was the filmmaker’s valentine to stars Pam Grier and Robert Forster.

Grier came to fame as the groundbreaking female action superstar of such Blaxploitation films as 1973’s “Coffy” and 1974’s “Foxy Brown.” Though Grier continued working in film and television, she hadn’t had a meaty leading film role since the demise of the genre.

Forster, who starred in such classics as Haskell Wexler’s 1969’s “Medium Cool,” was primarily doing “B” films and didn’t even have a manager or an agent when “Jackie Brown” came along.

Both veteran actors found their careers revitalized by the film. Grier earned a Golden Globe nomination for “Jackie Brown” and since has appeared in such TV series as Showtime’s acclaimed “The L Word” and films including “Larry Crowne,” and published her autobiography. Forster received a supporting actor nom as bail bondsman

Update: Deadline has confirmed that Mark L. Smith will write Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek movie.
