Tarantino Compares Manson Murders Movie to Pulp Fiction

CinemaCon, the world's largest convention for theater owners, kicked off in Las Vegas last night, with the Sony Pictures panel including a surprise appearance by Once Upon a Time in Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino and star Leonardo DiCaprio. This upcoming movie, set in the year 1969, examining some of the most pivotal events from this year, hasn't even started filming yet, with principal photography slated to begin this summer. Without any actual footage to show, a sizzle reel of Tarantino's films was shown, with the director comparing this film to the 1994 seminal classic that put him on the map, Pulp Fiction. Here's what the director had to say below.

"It takes place during the 1969 Hollywood era at the height of the counterculture explosion, at the time of the hippie revolution. During the summer, little by little, block by block, we'll be transforming Los Angeles in the psychedelic Hollywood of 1969."&#8232

It's clear by now that Quentin Tarantino isn't afraid of diving into some pretty gruesome stories, and his next project only further confirms it. In July 2017, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Tarantino is in the early stages of putting together a film described as "a unique take on the Manson Family murders." 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, will be called Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and a source confirmed that Tarantino both penned the script for Sony and will direct. The movie is being produced by Tarantino, Harry Potter's David Heyman, and Shannon McIntosh, with Georgia Kacandes serving as executive producer.

The Cast

On the casting front, THR confirmed that Inglourious Basterds alum Brad Pitt will play stunt double Cliff Booth,

If Dwayne Johnson Is Hollywood’s Biggest Star, Why Did ‘Rampage’ Open Soft?

If Dwayne Johnson Is Hollywood’s Biggest Star, Why Did ‘Rampage’ Open Soft?
“Rampage” opened #1 last weekend at just under $36 million, with Dwayne Johnson its only name draw. Is that enough to make The Rock the biggest movie star in Hollywood — or, is his greatest asset the near-complete dearth of actors who can open movies?

Johnson’s marquee value is well documented. Since 2011, he appeared in eight films that grossed over $100 million (nine if you include the animated “Moana”). “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “The Fate of the Furious” in 2017 each exceeded $200 million. However, times have changed. Once, being a top star meant your movies were always the year’s biggest movies. Now, in an era where animation and comic-book adaptations are the biggest draws, an actor’s own larger-than-life appeal is less important.

Rampage” should make around $90 million domestic and another $300 million or so additional overseas. Expect it to make $400 worldwide, perhaps a little more. With production and marketing costs topping $220 million,

Danny Boyle's 007: what can we expect from the next James Bond?

The Trainspotting director is working on a script for the 25th Bond film. From nods to #MeToo and Time’s Up to Trainspotting-style sleights of hand, here’s what we might get

If the James Bond film producers Eon really want to shake up 007, they should employ Quentin Tarantino – not Danny Boyle – to take charge of the next film in the franchise. Tarantino has long had designs on Bond, and nobody writes better dialogue for Christoph Waltz – so much so that the latter’s underplayed Ernst Stavro Blofeld in 2015’s Spectre was a pale shadow of the Austrian maestro’s freewheeling, rambunctious turns as SS officer Hans Landa in Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds (2009) and as bounty hunter Dr King Schultz in 2012’s Django Unchained. Imagine Blofeld escaping from jail and going after Her Majesty’s top agent in the forthcoming 25th official Bond flick, this time armed with the dazzling

Oscars flashback: Daniel Day-Lewis (‘Lincoln’) sets record with 3rd win as Best Actor [Watch]
After his sweeping victory with “There Will Be Blood” in 2007, many thought Daniel Day-Lewis had reached his zenith. What could top that performance?

In 2012 he was given the title role in Steven Spielberg’s epic “Lincoln.” Once again he immersed himself in the role, spending an entire year on research of Abraham Lincoln alone. For this performance as America’s greatest statesmen, Day-Lewis became the first and only winner of three Best Actor Academy Awards, ranking behind only Katharine Hepburn for the most acting Oscar wins in a lead category (she has four).

Watch the video above as the only living actress with three acting wins, Meryl Streep, presents an emotional Day-Lewis with the trophy at the 2013 ceremony.
