While Deadline seemed to give us the wrong impression what Quentin Tarantino’s 9th film would be about, teasing it would be a Charles Manson biopic. Vanity Fair (via ThePlaylist) has reportedly learned some actual concrete details about the film. Revealing it might actually have more to do with late 1960s Hollywood and using the backdrop of the Manson murders to set up the mood of the film. Below is a plot synopsis which Vanity Fair believes is from the script.
“Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, Tarantino’s upcoming movie, according to a source who read the script, 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 is set to begin this summer with a release date in 2019.
