What Quentin Tarantino's New Movie Is Really About
Sony won the bidding war for Quentin Tarantino's new Movie, which will be his ninth directorial feature. Now some new details regarding the plot have been revealed. It was announced earlier this month that the director was out holding meetings to pitch the untitled 9th movie, which will take place in 1969 with the Manson Family murders as the backdrop. It had been reported earlier that the movie was going to exclusively be about Charles Manson and the story of the 2-night brutal killing spree that he commanded his "family" to commit, but Tarantino recently revealed that to be false and instead said the movie was only taking place in 1969.

Vanity Fair reports that a source who was trying out for the movie has read the script and it does include the recently deceased Charles Manson and the murders that he ordered, but as a background element tied together by Sharon Tate,

Quentin Tarantino’s New Movie: First Plot Details Reveal the Role Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt are Circling
Quentin Tarantino fans have been wondering what exactly his ninth movie will be about ever since word leaked in July that the project would deal with Charles Manson and the Manson family murders. The filmmaker intensified the speculation surrounding the plot of his new film when he told IndieWire, “It’s not Charles Manson, it’s 1969.” The answer to what that means has been provided by Vanity Fair, which spoke to someone who has read the script.

Vanity Fair reports the official synopsis as follows: “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 is looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick—who’s also his stunt double—is looking for the same thing.

First Plot Details for Quentin Tarantino’s Ninth Feature, Set in 1969 Los Angeles

After a difficult shoot in the snowy, sub-zero terrain of Colorado for The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino is returning to a more familiar arena in more ways than one for his ninth feature. Set in Los Angeles during the late 1960s, it was first reported that the film would focus on Charles Manson and the killings his followers carried out, but the director recently clarified: “It’s not Charles Manson, it’s 1969.”

Now that Sony Pictures has emerged as the victor to finance and distribute the film, which will cost around $100 million, we’re starting to get more details on the project. It’s been known that Margot Robbie is being sought for the role of Sharon Tate, and Deadline reports there are two male lead roles, with Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio all having discussions with Tarantino. Thanks to Vanity Fair, it’s now been revealed what

‘Get Out’ and the Golden Globes: A Lesson Not to Laugh At

‘Get Out’ and the Golden Globes: A Lesson Not to Laugh At
It’s easy enough to mock — or maybe get on your high horse about — the fact that “Get Out,” Jordan Peele’s brilliantly creepy lightning-rod racial thriller, is now in the running to be nominated for Best Comedy or Musical, rather than Best Drama, at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards. The movie, of course, is neither a comedy nor a musical. (Discuss.) It’s drama of the most riveting and original kind, one that sucks you into a vortex of (justified) paranoia, turning into a nightmare that suggests a forbidden “Twilight Zone” written by James Baldwin and staged by the Roman Polanski of “Rosemary’s Baby,” with a ghostly touch of “Mandigo.”

Tempting as it might be to blame the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this particular screw-up, it was the film’s distributor, Universal, that chose to submit “Get Out” for Best Comedy or Musical, doing so without Peele’s knowledge. That accounts

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

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.

Tarantino Targets Tom Cruise as New Movie Sparks Bidding War
The new Quentin Tarantino Movie doesn't have a studio home as of yet, but it has already launched a bidding war between every major studio, with the sole exception of Disney, along with multiple financiers and "mini-major" studios seeking this project.

Quentin Tarantino Film Bidding Heats Up: Three Finalists Emerge (Exclusive)

Three Hollywood studios are engaging in a heated courtship of Quentin Tarantino as they work to out-charm each other for the rights to the “Pulp Fiction” director’s upcoming movie set against the backdrop of the Charles Manson murders.

Paramount, Sony, and Warner Bros. have emerged as the three finalists for the project, Variety has learned. It’s possible, of course, that a dark horse candidate could still emerge. Each of the three studios heard Tarantino’s pitch, with Warners engaging in some splashy wooing in hopes of landing the film. When Tarantino arrived at the studio’s Burbank lot, he found the circular entrance in front of the administration building adorned with cars from the late 1960s. The Warner Bros. logo circa 1969 was on the marquee outside the studio, and the executive conference room was outfitted with vintage furniture from the era and mock posters for the movie.

Quentin Tarantino's New Movie Is Not About Charles Manson
Quentin Tarantino is getting ready for his next movie, but it isn't going to center on the Manson Family Murders Movie as previously reported, according to the director. The news comes after it was revealed that Tarantino was looking for financial backing for the project after the collapse of the Weinstein Company due to multiple allegations of sexual misconduct leveled at Harvey Weinstein. The same report also revealed that Quentin Tarantino was actively pursuing Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio for roles in the movie, which if true, will be one heck of a cast.

Quentin Tarantino recently spoke with Indiewire where he revealed that the movie is not about Charles Manson, which comes as a disappointment to some. Instead the director said that the movie is about 1969, which will more than likely focus on Charles Manson for at least a few scenes. 1969 was a tumultuous year for the
