Quentin Tarantino has just finished a round of pitches last week for his latest film, and up until this point, it’s been rumored that his film would be centered around the Charles Manson Murders.
However, it looks like that isn’t quite true. Speaking at an award-season post-screening brunch for Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled (via IndieWire), Tarantino himself cleared up the matter, saying:
“It’s not Charles Manson, it’s 1969.”
It’s easy to see where the confusion may have come in. Someone with an insider on the project may have seen some information on the script, and given that it takes place in 1969, may have seen some mentioning of the Charles Manson Murders and assumed that’s what the film would center around. As it stands, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Manson Murders still played a role in the atmosphere of the film, but as it stands, it won’t be the focus.
Tarantino is currently in the process of finding a new distributor for his ninth feature. This comes on the heels of sexual harassment accusations against his previous collaborator, Harvey Weinstein. We’ve also heard rumors surrounding the potential casting of the film, and that Tarantino had written roles for previous collaborators Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Samuel L. Jackson. We’re sure more info about the project will arise once they find a distributor and lock down shooting details.
